A. Too many times, borrowing someone else’s guitar is a bad idea. However, you could have a used guitar checked out at a reputable music store first. Most likely, you will be better off buying an instrument. This article is useful in guiding you to purchase the right type of guitar. https://nationalguitaracademy.com/best-beginner-guitar/
Q. Lessons vs. being self-taught?
A. Lessons provide accountability and motivation. Your instructor will also notice things (such as your playing position) that you might miss. They can help you to avoid developing bad habits.
Q. What if I have no music background or don’t know how to read music?
A. I have added a course that is designed to teach students how to play by ear. It was originally meant for visually impaired folks but is ideal for sighted students as well!
Q. Why should I take lessons from you?
A. My job is to help you achieve YOUR goal(s) with guitar. So I offer GREAT flexibility in my approach. Also, I have a passion for teaching and for music! To make up for some bad experiences as a student, I try to be enthusiastic, generous with praise, patient and encouraging while gently offering constructive criticism. Usually, I am able to help students overcome playing issues due to many years of experience.
Q. What if I have other questions?
A. Please email your questions to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call me at (530) 306-3291.
