So why are you looking at our site today?
Everyone would agree that music speaks to each one of us in an unique way. It can bring up specific memories and allows us to feel certain emotions. When we play, we can express ourselves and effect those around us. This makes music powerful and brings people closer together.
Guitar itself is a versatile instrument, with the right directions, you can be playing your first song in the first hour, building up your skill to play at performance level and beyond! Learning how to advance on the acoustic guitar has endless possibility with different styles and applications. It is great for vocal accompaniment, which is why it's such a popular instrument to write and sing songs with.
If you have had a guitar sitting there for awhile then this is the time to start. This is why you are on our website, right? Playing the acoustic guitar can be easy and fun when you are with the right teacher. We agree that it is easy to put things off than to start something new, and that is why we are here, to help you get started.
Perhaps you have been playing for awhile and feel stuck. This does frequently happen when you lack direction. Most musicians often hit a plateau with their playing. We have all been there. You feel lost and don't know what to work on next. You can even loose inspiration and motivation to play or practise. This can cause little progress to be made. We have helped many people overcome this frustration by providing the right guidance and inspiration for them.
You may see a guitar teacher as just a guitar teacher. And that may be true for some guitar teachers. Like most professions, someone's ability to teach can vary and does not always relate to their ability on the guitar. You may have already had a teacher and felt that they didn't know how to help you progress or keep you interested. This definitely does not make them a good guitar teacher.
Your lessons with a guitar teacher...
...should be so much more than just learning new material. You can easily get content from books, online websites, videos or apps. However, these options of learning will never listen to your desires and goals. A world of content is distracting and can leave any beginner or even advance player overwhelmed and confused. It's easy to get lost in the information and not know which direction to go. There is also the danger of learning the wrong techniques. Then you have to unlearn it, which is even more time consuming!
The right guitar teacher will listen to you, and ensure the materials you are given is correct and appropriate for you. Train and coach you to ensure the techniques you are learning is correct and teach you how to integrate it into different songs to ensure you are confident with each step before moving on. This allows you to progress effectively and quickly by learning the right techniques the first time with the right direction to help you reach your goals.
So you may be thinking, I have a friend who plays the guitar who would teach me! This is of course another option, but this one often leaves people frustrated and not advancing. Your friend will never dedicate themselves to helping you achieve your goals week in and week out while making sure you practise and is actually improving. These relationships rarely last for long, and often disinterest you as a potentially amazing player and wastes a lot of everyone's time.
We don't want any of these things to happen to you! You deserve someone who listens to you from day one and knows what you want. Someone who is flexible and can adapt to teaching you in the way that helps you advance. You want to be certain that you are going in the right direction and when you play, you feel constantly inspired and motivated to improve.
