Featured Bristol Guitar Teachers

Michael C

Instruments:

Over the past 40 years I have been involved with several different “R&B” bands and played various college circuits, also playing in local clubs and many private parties. I have had a wonderful opportunity to meet and play with many professional musicians in my career. My approach to teaching is to customize lessons based upon the individuals’ age, current skill level and their personal goals. Teaching them how to read music, phrase their sound and control the dynamics to produce a cohesive piece of music. I often record students during a lesson, which allows them the ability to hear their progress week to week and helps them to focus on the areas in need. Many of my students have credited me as having had a positive influence for them to continue their music education at college level, and they themselves have become accomplished musicians.

Instruments:

For over 20 years, Barry has been active working as a producer, engineer, composer, arranger and musician, now working primarily in his home recording studio.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Smaller guitars are easier to play for younger students. It is recommended that young students begin by learning on a half sized or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Older students could start off on an electric guitar, as long as they find it natural and comfortable to handle. It is possible to get hold of a brand new student model guitar for around $150 - $200. For those looking to play electric guitar, remember that an amplifier and cables will be needed, which will have to be purchased separately. A student will likely enjoy their playing, the easier it is to do so. In general, the higher quality instruments are nicer and easier to play, which will contribute to the students enjoyment and development.
Need to save time because of your busy schedule? Why not try in-home guitar lessons. A Musika teacher can travel to your home and provide excellent quality instruction in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Young children will start out by learning how to fret notes with the left hand, and how to pluck or strum the strings with their right hand. This will allow them to play simple, familiar songs on one string. Students will start learning to read music, and eventually learn how to play the common open guitar chords. Once students are more familiar with the guitar fretboard, they can start learning barre chords, moveable scales, and be introduced to music theory. Advanced students might decide to study classical guitar repertoire, rock or blues solos, or even jazz improvization.
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. At Musika, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve your guitar playing goals, whether you are a novice, intermediate or advanced level player. It takes time, dedication and patience to acquire the co-ordination, techniques and skills necessary to meet your aims. Those who commit to taking regular lessons and daily practice will see the fastest progression in their guitar playing abilities.
Children need three main things in order to begin guitar lessons: physical dexterity in their hands, patience and commitment to practice between lessons, and the maturity to work well with the teacher. It takes a lot of hard work and daily practice for students to improve to a point where they can play their favorite songs - parents play a big role in determining a students success.
