5 Great Tips for Choosing the Best Guitar Lessons

  1. 1. 5 Great Tips for Choosing the Best Guitar Lessons 1) Know what you would like to learn on guitar The more specific you are about your musical goals, the more you will get out of your lessons. It’s always the students who are the best prepared and who really know what they would like to learn, who get the most satisfaction out of their lessons. 2) Find the best possible teacher you can find Do your research, ask around, interview tons of teachers. The best teacher with the strongest reputation, might not necessarily be “the best teacher for you”. You are unique, but so is every teacher. While it is true that the top level guitar teachers are fantastic listeners who can easily adapt to any possible personality type, even then that teacher might not necessarily “feel” right for you. Always go with your gut feeling. Either way: you always benefit from going with the more experienced guitar teacher who has earned a reputation. After all: that reputation is usually there for a reason. This usually includes:  A teacher with a very open, friendly, patient and caring personality.  Who teaches a strong, solid, structured guitar curriculum with hand outs and exercises, covering everything there is to learn about guitar and music.  Who gives you weekly homework assignments and exercises.  Who motivates and inspires you, and who cares about giving you the best possible education you can get in town.
  2. 2. 3) Guitar lessons are what you make them The more regularly you show up for lessons, the more quickly you will learn and the better you will progress. The teacher is only the guide, everything else is really in your hands. I know people who graduated from a top school like Berklee College of Music, feeling that “they didn’t get that much out of it.” A school or any educational system, is only worth it what you put into it.  The more you communicate with your teacher, the better he will know how to make and keep you happy.  The more regularly you meet for lessons, the more fun you will have in your lessons. Part of what makes learning guitar so much fun, is that cool feeling of achievement that kicks in when you see yourself get better.  The more upbeat and positive you are in your lessons, the more fun it is for the teacher to work with you, and the more you will get out of that teacher. This might for example require getting used to making mistakes in a teacher’s presence. 4) Measure your progress Think about it: the “best lessons” really are the lessons that give you the best possible progress and growth with the least possible effort.
  3. 3. If you do the drills and the homework, exactly as the teacher outlined them for you, but you don’t see progress, then obviously the lessons or the teaching approach are not working for you. On the other hand of course: if you don’t see the progress you had hoped or wished for, but you have to admit you’re not really meeting regularly for lessons, or you’re not doing the drills or exercises diligently, that’s an entirely different story all together. People who meet weekly for lessons, progress about 4-5 times as quickly as students who only meet every other week. The difference in progress is unbelievable. 5) What can you afford? You deserve to get the best possible training and education you can get. It’s been my experience as a guitar coach, that most people tend to confuse “what they can afford” with “what they think they can only afford”. As an example: many people who have a choice between a $40/hr guitar teacher and the $65/hr teacher, are going to choose the cheaper teacher. Unfortunately: what they don’t take into account then, is that the cheaper teacher only charges that much, because he (usually rightfully so) doesn’t feel that he has what it takes in terms of teaching skills or experience, to get the $65 teacher results. These students then end up taking and paying for 2-3 lessons what the $65 teacher would have accomplished with them in 1 lesson. As such: they actually ended up paying way more than $65 to get the same quality and results the more experienced teacher would have given them in much less time for much lesser cost.
