More Information About Guitar Lessons

If possible, it is beneficial for younger students to begin their learning on a smaller sized guitar. Half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars are most suitable for young learners. Provided they are comfortable with holding the guitar, older students can start on an electric model. There are a range of different model guitars that are suitable for students, and can be found between the $150 to $200 price range. Remember though, that electric guitarists will need amplification and cables, which need to be purchased at additional costs. The best chance a student will have of liking and enjoying their guitar playing is to invest in good, high quality instruments, as they tend to be easier to play.
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.
Our guitar students will 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 favourite 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!
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.
At Musika, we recommend that the earliest age in which students start to take guitar lessons is about 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical will be the easier and most comfortable for younger students to play. In this age group, students will learn to play simple songs on the top strings. By the ages of 7-8, students can start to form chords and play and sing along to some of their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age bracket, they are likely to want to learn how to play rock music on an electric guitar, and should be comfortable playing a full sized guitar at this stage.
