Learn the guitar to start playing music

Whether you want to become a classical musician, create a rock band or simply accompany yourself singing your favourite songs, there is one great instrument that can serve all those purposes that is the guitar.

This amazing instrument has various advantages that make it an excellent option for both beginners and advanced musicians. On the one hand, the basics of the guitar can be acquired pretty quickly. You'll need to learn just a couple of chords to play simple songs and have fun.

On the other hand, the possibilities of the guitar are truly unlimited. If you compare such styles as flamenco, jazz or heavy metal in which the guitar is used, you will find out how many different guitar techniques there are and what variety of sounds can be performed on that instrument.

What's more, the guitar can be a really good instrument for students because it is pretty easy to find a good teacher who will make sure you learn it the right way. So, let's find out what options you can have to improve your guitar skills in Halifax and play the music you love.

What should I learn first on guitar?

Whether it's the guitar, the piano or another instrument, what's very important to play it correctly is the right posture. Depending on the music style you are interested in, there are different ways to hold the instrument. It is extremely important to produce good sound and evolve as a guitar player later on.

There are various ways to learn the right guitar posture for beginners. As a lot of students learn the guitar around the world, you can find websites and video lessons devoted to the instrument that will help you advance.

However, a student may often not be sure whether their posture is really correct if they learn the guitar alone. Taking some lessons with a qualified teacher can be of great help for them. You'll acquire the right techniques from the start and advance much faster through your learning.

What is the easiest way to learn the guitar?

When students take their first guitar lessons, they often find it difficult to coordinate their two hands that are supposed to perform different movements at the same time.

A good solution may be firsts to learn only the left-hand part of the song because it needs a lot of precision and usually requires more concentration and then add the right hand.

Another useful tip when starting to learn music is to play your pieces very slowly at first. In general, if you are able to execute a song in a slow rhythm, it will be easy to accelerate it afterwards. If you learn the guitar with a teacher, they can show you how the piece sounds when you play it slowly and you'll know better what you are learning.

What is the hardest guitar style?

People often wonder what piece of music or style is the most difficult one for one instrument or another. It is difficult to answer that question because a lot of musicians consider it much more difficult to play a song in a musical and expressive way than to master it technically.

However, some music styles include especially complex techniques which make them especially difficult for beginners. One such style is flamenco. It may include very quick passages that even not all professional musicians can perform. For example, you can listen to Paco de Lucia's songs online to have an idea.

Still, if you take lessons with a good teacher in Halifax, they'll teach you the difficult techniques gradually. You'll first hone your skills in a slow rhythm and can accelerate once your hands have become more agile.

Where to take good lessons in Halifax

When we start learning a new instrument, having a good teacher can be of great help. After a few lessons, a student will know how to adopt the right posture and start playing small pieces of music or singing simple songs.

Halifax can be an especially good place for music students because it has several music schools and as it is located near Mississauga and Toronto, you can also attend a music academy there.

One great music studio in Halifax is the Academy of Music, it offers a good choice of lessons for various instruments, including the piano, the guitar, the drums, as well as singing.

All the lessons can be taken online or at the studio depending on what suits you best. The teachers at the academy accompany you in your learning to make it fun and motivating. You can tell them what style you are interested in and work on the pieces of music you like.

What is the best first song to learn on guitar?

Whether you take classes in Brampton, Mississauga or Toronto, it's important to play the music that motivates you. Of course, it is usually impossible for beginners to execute complex compositions written for professional players, but even simple songs can be very pleasant to play.

During your first lesson, you can discuss your taste with your teacher, so they'd know what your objectives are and what techniques you need to acquire first. They will plan their classes accordingly and you'll have fun.

How many hours a day should I practice guitar?

Taking in-class or online lessons with a teacher can be very useful to know what you need to focus on. At the same time, an important part of work will need to be performed on your own after each lesson.

The most important condition to achieve good results in music is regularity. Even if it's not possible to practice for two or three hours a day, you should still devote some time to the guitar. Our music abilities need both training and rest to improve, so practicing for fifteen minutes or half an hour each day can bring about great results.
