Guitar Lessons

Do I Teach Guitar?

People as me this a fair bit and often when I’m in the middle of playing so I don’t have time to go into it so here it is. Yes, I give lessons and I really enjoy giving lessons to people who practice (and by practice I mean play, between lessons). I don’t get too specific about how much playing, just an expectation that it will happen to some extent.

Most of being able to play an instrument is about how much time you’re willing to give to it. The fingering, the chord shapes and so on are pretty much the least of it. It is time spent playing that makes the difference. Teaching people who don’t play between lessons is tedious for both parties; we just end up going over the same stuff week on week.  Let’s not! Let’s go on a journey together where I get to share with you what I know and you get to play a beautiful instrument the way you want to.

How Much Practice?

I suggest you pick up your guitar every single day, even if it’s just for a few minutes. If you have space at home, I suggest leaving it out of its case somewhere safe but accessible so you can pick it up really easily.  Inevitably you’ll miss a day here and there, some days however you’ll play for longer than others, sometimes you’ll feel like you’re not getting anywhere but you will be. It all adds up.

What Will You Teach Me?

I will teach you to play some great songs from beginner level upwards, enough music theory to understand the make up of chords and so on. I’ll help you learn songs that you’d like to play and most importantly I’ll encourage you to explore the guitar and find your own style.

Do You Teach Grades?

Nope.
