All you need is at the tip of your fingers
Learning to play an instrument is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. The guitar, in particular, is a timeless instrument favored by countless musicians the world over. It's easy to listen to our favourite songs and daydream about playing them ourselves with precision and perfection. We’ve all had that fantasy of starring in a music video and looking stunning as we pluck and strum away on a slick polished guitar.
However, actually making progress on your music education can be daunting. There’s no doubt that there's going to be a lot of hard work involved in even beginning to play the guitar. Plenty of us have tried learning on our own and ended up with our guitars gathering dust in a corner. This is frustrating for any budding musician who wants to master this fantastic instrument.
In fact, overcoming and powering through the frustrations might just be the hardest part of learning how to play the guitar. Still, determination is the key to success here and you’ve already shown enough will power to go out and get yourself the instrument. Now you just need someone to help guide you in the learning process of playing the guitar.
Whether you’re learning for the fun and pleasure of jamming out recreationally or for boosting your skills to aid your music profession, we’ve got solutions for you.
Every individual has a unique learning style. For learning the guitar, you might think auditory would be the best way to go, but really there’s no wrong way about it. We have plenty of different kinds of instructional guides to help you learn, so just use the method you like best. Whether you want to learn by yourself using visuals or have a person guide you as you progress, we’ve got you covered.
If you’re still unsure about the best way to learn, we highly recommend signing up for a personal instructor. They would give you private lessons while they assess your skill level and then endorse a more appropriate learning process that’s tailor-fit for you.
Adjust your whole-body technique to help you play your best
Even if you prefer to learn how to play the guitar on your own, private lessons are still highly recommended as an experienced guitar instructor can provide you with the proper supervision and guidance. Even if you may be strumming and plucking all the right chords, you might come to focus on your hands and forget the rest of your body.
The whole body needs to be in proper form to play the instrument properly. This is a common problem for self-taught players. So while you’re preoccupied with your hands, your tutor can take note of your posture, breathing, and muscle tension and correct you immediately. This prevents you from forming any bad habits and saves you from future strains and aches.
Assess your existing guitar-playing ability
There’s a good chance that if you learn guitar on your own, you will not have a very accurate assessment of your playing ability. Inexperience can easily make you underestimate, or more likely, overestimate your capabilities. Misjudging a song to be easier than it actually is, may cause self-taught guitarists to take up incorrect playing habits just for the sake of playing the right chords and notes.
If you had an instructor, they could inform you that while your playing sounds correct it doesn’t mean you are actually playing correctly. Shortcuts don’t actually get you to the destination, and while the pace may be longer, rest assured that your instructor will eventually get you where you want and are supposed to be.
Bring you to greater progress than you would by yourself
It takes plenty of time to learn a new skill, and this can really be discouraging! However, because private lessons are highly tailored to your abilities and desires, the assistance you will be receiving from your personal instructor will help hone your skills much more quickly that you might expect. You might not even notice it, but you will be getting to milestones you never even thought you could reach! As an added bonus, people will start pointing out how good you’ve gotten in a much shorter time than you expected.
Hype you up with the right guidance
All trainers, in music or otherwise, are basically hype men. It’s part of their job to provide encouragement, because they want to see you succeed. You will inevitably fall into discouragement when learning guitar, whether alone or with an instructor. However, with your instructor, you will have someone who will be there for you, ready to work with you on your strengths and weaknesses. Your emotional well-being is on their minds and they want to make sure that every challenge you face will not overwhelm you. Instead, these challenges can be overcome, and will bring you much satisfaction.
Teach music theory
Although music theory is much more sought after by composers rather than regular musicians, having a guitar tutor teach you how music works is highly conducive to your music education. Private lessons can provide you with all you need to know from the basic fundamentals to more complex points that would be hard to grasp by yourself. Having a sturdy foundation in music theory makes sure that you understand what’s going on in the music you’re playing. This gives you a clear picture of where you’re going and how best to get there.
Start you off right from the very beginning
If you’ve had bad playing habits, it’s going to be a nuisance to unlearn them. Luckily, opting for a private tutor will straight away make sure you start things off on the right foot. The lessons are tailored to your abilities with mastery as the ultimate goal. Each step is crafted specifically for you to succeed in your guitar playing endeavors.
