More Information About Guitar Lessons

The age of the student will probably determine what kind of guitar you should buy. Younger students usually start with an acoustic guitar, either 1/2 or 3/4 size. Students 10 and up can usually play an electric guitar without too much trouble, and not feel overwhelmed by the extra accessories, cables, and amp. Most teenage students and many adults will want the sound of the electric - just make sure to talk to your teacher about what you need to get started.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
At Musika, our teachers create lessons plans that are specifically customized to meet the needs of each individual student. Our experienced teachers can develop the skills of a complete beginner, or help to take an advanced players skills to the next level. Students can expect to learn such things as; how to correctly hold the guitar, learning the notes on the fret board and how to tune their instrument. Students will also learn techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and will learn to play various scales and chords, such as open chords, power chords and barre chords. They will learn how to combine these elements of guitar playing to create or cover complete compositions, as well as learning music theory and how to read music. Last but not least, our teachers will help students to realize the joys and fun that learning to play the guitar can bring!
At Musika, we suggest that adult students looking to start guitar lessons do so with a specific aim or goal in mind. Beginners may have such goals as learning to play their favorite songs or to write their own music, whereas advanced students might want to develop a particular technique or aspect of their guitar playing. Irrespective of your experience or level, our teachers can help you to achieve your goals. Remember, developing playing skills can take time. The best way to ensure you achieve your goals is through regular lessons and consistent practice.
Students can start their guitar lessons as young as 6 years of age. A half sized classical guitar will be easier to hold for young students, and nylon strings are softer on the fingers than steel strings. By the age of 7 or 8, most students are able to start forming chords, and can learn to play and sing along to their favorite songs. Often students will progress onto using a full size guitar by the ages of 10-12. During these years, students usually develop a taste for rock music and will want to learn the electric guitar.
