Do I Teach Guitar?
People as me this a fair bit and often I don’t have time to go into it so here it is. Yes, I give 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 unpleasant for both parties.
How Much Practice?
I suggest you pick up your guitar every single day, even if it’s just for a few minutes. 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, 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.
