For younger students, it is recommended that they use a half size, or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Provided they are able to hold it comfortably, older students may wish to start out on an electric guitar. A reasonable price for a new student model guitar would be between $150 - $200, although for electric guitar players, an amplifier and guitar leads/cables will need to be bought separately at an extra cost. The higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. This will make learning and playing more enjoyable for the student.

Musika plans its guitar lessons with the specific requirements of each individual student in mind. During the course of their guitar lessons, students can expect to learn; How to hold, tune and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favorite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
Many adults take guitar lessons! Your teacher will develop an individualized lesson plan relevant to your musical needs and goals. Adults taking guitar lessons for the first time can expect to learn a lot of new things, and have fun in the process!
Students are able to start taking guitar lessons with Musika at age 6. For students this young, we recommend that they start off by using a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. Students in this age group will start by learning to play simple melodies using the top strings of the guitar, as will be able to progress on to forming chords and playing more advanced songs by the ages of 7-8 years old. Students are able to graduate to using a full sized guitar by ages 10-12, and will likely want to learn to play rock on an electric guitar.
