What makes a good guitar lesson?

The most common way to learn to play the guitar or any other instrument is to get a good teacher and attend lessons. Of course, you should practice on your own between lessons. Here is what a guitar student should expect from a well organized guitar lesson.

If you’re the student then your goal is different from your teacher’s goal – one of you already can play the guitar. So most students automatically respect their teacher and believe everything they say. That’s good and if you are making progress then you hardly ever have to question the quality of the guitar lessons. But there are plenty of teachers around who actually have no idea what they’re going do with you in the next lesson. So here comes the first rule of a good guitar lesson:

1. A good guitar lesson is always based on a plan

So if you’re not sure then ask your teacher – what are your plans with this term/season/semester? What are we going to learn and how am I going to achieve the goals that we set together?

2. A guitar lesson is the place where you get your problems solved

Teaching is all about solving problems. If you go home from a good guitar lesson then you always know what are you going to practice when you get home. If you leave the class with confusion and a feeling that you are still “not good enough and need to practice, practice, practice.” then you should ask what is the most effective way to practice in order to solve the problem – good practice is not simply about repetition.

3. Good guitar lessons are never boring

Studying an instrument includes similarities with doing sports but it also must have the creative side. A well organized lesson includes warm-up, techniques, interpretation and playing.

There are more things that make a wonderful guitar lesson but don’t forget that very much depends on you as a student – if you don’t do your practice then you’re not going to get anywhere.

4. Make sure the guitar course is taught by someone with actual teaching experience

This is easier than it sounds, folks. All you need to do is find out who the guitar teacher is and Google them. All the information you want to know will be returned in a few seconds. Read, review and make sure the teacher is really a teacher and not just a player who is trying to make extra money.

 

5 If you are an absolute beginner

Be absolutely certain that it is a true beginner’s program. Many times, you may discover that much of the basic stuff is omitted from beginner’s guitar lessons. Things like proper position, picking techniques, parts of the guitar, reading music and tablature should be included. Without this information under your belt, you may find your guitar lessons to be in vain.

6 Take into consideration the type of music you want to play on the guitar.

Search out guitar lessons that offer the genre that motivates you. There are comprehensive guitar lesson programs available that cover several music genres and styles, but that might not be for you. If you want to learn flamenco, then look for guitar lessons that can offer entirely flamenco. If you like rock, find a guitar teacher who can provide rock guitar lesson. The very best guitar teachers, who can offer many genres, will have a much more comprehensive understanding of the instrument and who knows, you may start out learning the guitar by playing rock and eventually get a taste for flamenco.

7 Do the guitar lessons provide an opportunity for you to play with other guitarists?

As well as providing a fun way to practice, it also gives you playing experience with other players. At Lincoln Guitar Tuition you will have the opportunity to join a band and play with other student just like you.

8 Good guitar lessons should take you from the very beginning to the very highest level.

The very best guitar teachers can give you a first-rate foundation and build on this until you become an advanced and independent player. You should feel like your guitar teacher is aiming to get you as good as possible as quickly as possible.
