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.

For students looking to start learning to play the guitar, we recommend that you do so with a specific goal in mind. This goal may be to learn to play your favorite song, learn to write music or brush up on your current skills. Whatever your goals may be, our experienced teachers can help you achieve them with their expert knowledge. For beginners, learning to co-ordinate the various new techniques you will be learning can take time - usually a few months. To maximize your progression, there is no better way than regular lessons and practice.
Kids just want to have one thing when they are learning how to play the guitar - FUN! Our teacher will work with you to make it as easy as possible to start learning the guitar, but it does take a lot of hard work and daily practice in order to improve. Students typically begin by playing easy songs on one or two strings while learning to read music, and only then move on to learning how to strum chords and read chord charts.
