School Of Rock Guitar
School of Rock (and everything else you can learn on guitar!)
There is no better way to learn to play guitar than with an experienced guitar teacher. It can be mundane to learn about something you have no interest in. It can also be mundane to learn about something you are passionate about if you aren’t being taught correctly. Learning can be fun if it isn’t institutionalized. When you decided that you wanted to learn guitar, you became enthusiastic and couldn’t wait to get started! But you need to find the right school and the right teacher. The wrong one can be the difference between learning something you care about and never picking up the guitar again.
Most of the information that you need to learn guitar is available in many different forms. There are thousands of books, videos, CDs and the Internet. Even though a lot of information is readily available to you, you need the aid of an excellent teacher to teach you how to fully understand and apply the correct information. All of these available resources out there cannot answer immediate questions you have or correct you when you hit a wrong chord. They cannot listen to your playing and critique you or praise you either for that matter.
Great guitar teachers manage and schedule new material for you and explain its importance and meaning to your teachings. They should encourage you when you are doing well and correct you when something goes wrong. They can build up your confidence level so you aren’t wondering if you are doing well or not. The will encourage you to keep going. Print, video or the Internet can do none of these things. Great teachers want to make sure you understand what you are learning so that you can continue to grow and get better. A good guitar teacher sincerely cares about your musical growth. Most of all, a good and experienced teacher will take you well beyond what you can learn on your own.
Unfortunately, guitar teachers are not required to be licensed so finding the right one can be tricky. They can all claim to be the best, but the truth is, only a handful actually knows what he or she is doing. Because of this, it’s important to ask questions such as:
- Where did you receive your training?
- How long have you been teaching?
- What genres of music do you prefer to teach?
- What is your teaching style like?
- Do you teach individually or in group settings?
- What is your rate?
- How many lessons do you suggest per month?
These questions are crucial to know when trying to find the perfect teacher for you. If you are in the Philadelphia area and are looking for guitar lessons, contact the David Joel Guitar Studio.
