The easiest way for a guitar lessons student to find out what kind of guitar to buy is to ask their teacher. Your teacher will know what local shops have fair deals, and which shops do a good job of setting up the instrument. Young students and beginners may find an acoustic guitar easier to play on and handle, while teenagers will probably want the power of an electric guitar so they can jam with their friends in the garage.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home guitar lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having guitar lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the guitar.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
For students looking to start learning to play the guitar, we recommend that they do so with a particular goal in mind. You may wish to learn how to play your favorite songs, develop your compositional abilities or music theory. Maybe you are an advanced player wanting to take their playing to the next level? Whatever the goal, our experienced teachers can help bring these wishes to life. It takes time to learn and develop your guitar playing, and may take a couple of months before you start to achieve your aims. The best way to guarantee you meet your goals is through regular practice and lesson time.
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.
