Philadelphia Guitar Lessons with an Amazing Guitar Teacher
Can anyone learn to play the guitar? With practice, focus and the right guitar lessons, anyone can play!
We all have talents and some people are more creative than others. We often strive to find a creative outlet to escape from life and release stress. Some paint or write and others create beautiful music. Have you always dreamed of playing an instrument and actually being good at it? Not everyone can discipline themselves enough to play an instrument, but everyone can do it if they try.
With the right guidance and the proper instrument, anyone can learn to play the guitar. Deciding you want to learn to play the guitar is the first step. It doesn’t matter what your age or skill level is. The next step is finding the right guitar teacher. Many, perhaps most, guitar players are not teachers, they are simply guitar players. Guitar players know how to play the guitar; guitar teachers know how to show other people to play the guitar. There is a vast difference in the two. Finding that guitar player who can also teach is the difference between learning to play well or getting frustrated and think you have no talent.
David Joel has been teaching guitar in the Philadelphia area for years. He is a guitar player and a teacher. He knows the difference between player and teacher. His teaching practice is to provide the student with essential fundamentals. The fundamentals include technique, the ability to read music, learning tunes and solo pieces, all given to them on a level in which they can understand and make their own.
Good technique is essentially the way in which you are trained to hold the guitar. It is extremely important to focus on learning technique when you learn to play. The older you are, the more practice you need in this category. The reason being is because you are already trained on how to hold your arms, wrists and fingers. So learning to hold them in a completely foreign way, with different dexterity, takes time and practice. Technique really is key no matter what age you are and it is vital to understanding how to play the guitar.
David teaches you the basics of how to read music. His ideal is simple, yet thorough and will direct you on how the basic elements of reading music occurs. Once he teaches you the standard musical notation, you develop a language in which to communicate with each other. In turn, this allows you to read music more effectively and at your own pace.
Next, David teaches you how to hear a tune. This is where music theory comes into play. By understanding how music works and how each note pieces together, you can gain a better understanding and appreciation for music by hearing it in the most pure way.
Playing guitar solo is important for the student’s development. By learning to play solo, the student can learn to play a piece of music alone, thus boosting their confidence and skill level.
