When To Begin Taking Lessons
For all beginning guitar students, we recommend a starting age of 10 years old. So why 10 years of age? The guitar and any string instrument for that matter, is very physical. When playing guitar, you are using muscles in your wrist, and hands in ways that you’ve never used before. There is a window of 1-3 months where a beginning guitar student will develop calluses on his or her fingers. Guitar requires a lot of muscle memory. In order to play songs, you must be able to switch guitar chords in time, which requires strong hands and calluses. This can create frustration in the beginning stage, but patience, discipline, and lots of practice, pay off. That’s why it’s our job to make the lesson fun and inspiring from day one!
Start With The Basics & Advance Quickly
We are of the teaching philosophy that in order to teach an instrument, you not only must be able to demonstrate, but you must also be able to convey what you are teaching. At the beginning of each lesson, we take the first 30 minutes, and focus on fundamentals of the guitar. Basic fundamentals include: string and pick technique, fret-board knowledge, scales, chords, arpeggios, playing good time and rhythm, and tone. We then quickly turn around and apply these fundamentals to a song of the students choosing. It’s one thing to be able to play a scale, but can you apply it in a musical context? We have the ability to get you playing a song in your very first lesson.
