Learn to play the guitar with a private teacher on Superprof

Awaken the inner musician in you by taking private guitar lessons in Toronto

Learning the guitar in the palm of your hand

If there鈥檚 anything that we鈥檝e learned in the usual manner of how things work in this world, it鈥檚 that nobody is born to excel in an instant. Talent is overrated, hard work is what actually counts, and how about throwing in a handful of passion? There is no other way. You can鈥檛 cheat your way to real success. This is the naked truth that is applicable to almost everything on this planet. Even playing the guitar.

Although not the hardest instrument to play, the guitar has caused inhibitions on players trying to learn it for the first time because nor is it the easiest to play. The most successful guitarists that ever walked the earth were known to have shed blood, sweat, and tears just to perfect their chosen craft. Learning the famed instrument will demand countless hours dedicated to practice as well as tons of patience and a constant check on self-respect. However discouraging this may seem to a beginner, one thing to keep in mind is that all the greats started here, right where you are.

While it can take the rest of your life to get into the god-playing likes of Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, Slash and Buddy Holly, the important thing can be found in three simple words: take your chance and try. Nobody knows if you鈥檙e destined to be the next guitar legend, so might as well do it for what it鈥檚 worth and start taking your own stage, right?

People want to learn how to play the guitar for different reasons. Some want to play as a pastime, some want to write their own music, others may want to pursue a professional music career, start a band or ride solo, while a few just want to impress a girl. Whatever your reason for trying, there is no reason to back down without giving it a try.

Jam with the chance to play the guitar as smooth as the Carlos Santana

Getting the hang of playing the guitar may involve a ton of required learning and study. Starting with the fundamentals and slowly touching on technical aspects, it can be quite overwhelming to begin especially if you have no prior learning.聽

If you鈥檙e not sure where to start, the best thing to do is to get the help of someone who does. Taking private guitar lessons is a great idea because studying how to play the guitar requires a certain level of supervision and guidance.

  • Access to formal learning. While it is indeed possible to learn how to play the guitar on your own, it is highly recommended to take private lessons from a teacher or an experienced tutor. Oftentimes,聽 there seems to be too much focus on perfecting the strumming, plucking, and fingering techniques, and too little attention on other factors that are essential to proper playing, such as good posture, leverage, relaxation timing, and breathing. This is a common mistake by self-taught players, neglecting other important aspects that affect how one plays the guitar effectively and without strain. Through a private tutor or teacher, you will learn how to play the guitar as such.

  • Play according to your ability.聽 Another common mistake of self-taught guitar players is that they tend to overestimate their playing ability, and try to adapt incorrect learning habits just to be able to play a note or a whole song. With a private teacher or tutor, you will be taught lessons according to your current capability to play. Your baby steps are honored, and lessons will be paced out starting from what you can do at your starting point, and will get harder and more complicated until such time that you are able to do so. This is the proper way to develop proper learning habits without compromising form.

  • Quick improvement and progress. With the right guitar teacher, you will find yourself performing well and fast. Since you are taking private lessons through a tutor, the lessons are tailored to your needs and abilities. You鈥檒l be surprised at your rate of learning once you seek the assistance of a guitar teacher.

  • Right direction and proper encouragement. Learning on your own may not incur any cost, at least not financially, but it can take a toll on your emotional health if the self-study does end up frustrating for you. Taking private lessons allows you to find your strengths and similarly, work on what else you need to improve on. Because there is a teacher who will work with you closely and oversee your performance, you have someone who can help you get through your challenges and encourage you to learn more as well as keep you grounded.
  • Learn music theory. Music theory is one of the most basic fundamentals of learning any instrument yet the most neglected by most self-taught players. By having a guitar tutor, you will learn how music works harmoniously, and in turn help you in writing your own music if you鈥檙e planning on it.聽
  • Your overall progress as a player is considered right from the beginning. Because private guitar lessons are geared towards your mastery of the instrument, your goals are carefully established along the way through careful evaluation of your teacher. Your teacher or private tutor can assess your abilities as you go through each lesson, all the while creating a plan to continue motivating you and keep you on the right track of learning.

Take your shot to strum the strings like a pro

Guitar lessons may vary depending on your level of experience, but at the end of each lesson, you will definitely become a better player.聽

  • How to properly hold the guitar
  • An introduction on fingers, frets, and strings
  • Playing the basic chords
  • Basic strumming techniques and tips
  • Playing your first song
  • Tuning your guitar
  • An introduction to slides, bends and hammer-ons.
  • Scaling
  • Knowing your chromatic scale
  • Playing the pentatonic scale

Pick up a guitar and be a rockstar at your own right

If you鈥檙e ready to become the best version of yourself as a guitar player, it鈥檚 time to crack your knuckles and embrace the musician in you through Superprof. We have over 40 guitar teachers and tutors available to help you get in touch with the Kurt Cobain in you.聽
