Probably one of the most frequently asked questions … and understandably so. This is all depending on the amount of time one puts in to their daily practice and studies. After the first lesson you will be able to play a melody and 2-3 chords. From there the sky’s the limit.
Probably the Second most frequently question asked …. quite simply, you do not need any prior musical experience. Any prior musical experience is a plus but certainly not a requirement!
Please refer to my lesson policies which can be found here Lesson policies
There are three type of guitar to consider when starting. My suggestion would be to start with an acoustic. Try playing both nylon and steel string guitars to help you decide.
Nylon String (Classical) Guitar. Softer strings which are usually easier to play and softer sound. They are designed to to be played with the fingers plucking on the right but can also be strummed.
Steel String Guitar. Metal strings which are usually a little harder to play but offer a brighter/louder sound. They are designed to to be played with a pick on the right hand but can also be fingerpicked.
Electric Guitar. Metal strings which are easy to play and require an amplifier. They are designed to to be played with a pick on the right hand but can also be fingerpicked.
For all students, the first month’s tuition is due at the beginning of the class
First time students: will need to bring their instrument and recommended book for studies.
Continuing and Advanced Students: need to bring their instrument, sheet music/books they’ve used previously, and have one piece/song prepared to play at the beginning of class. This is so I can obtain a better assessment of the student’s abilities
Tuition is always due in full the last lesson of the month for the upcoming month.
If it is your first lesson then 1 full month’s tuition is due at the beginning of the first class regardless of how many weeks remain in the month. The second month of lessons will be prorated accordingly.
