Taking guitar lessons gives students an opportunity to learn the basic concepts of music, and then be truly creative in developing their own style. You are not just a musician, you are a listener, a composer, a performer who can express themselves through sound. Discipline, patience, and concentration are key to studying guitar, however by arranging pieces or through improvisation, you have absolute freedom to explore. 

Students learning how to play guitar songs not only enhances their memorisation, it allows teachers to bring in maths knowledge. Even science is involved when teaching beginners sound waves and vibrations. Improving your music skills will allow you to connect in a meaningful way with an audience, and with yourself. Music is a form of self-expression, view it as a great way of channelling your thoughts, feelings, and energy. It’s an opportunity for students to improve their self-confidence and find out more about who they are, and how they can apply themselves to create beautiful sounds. 

Whether you are an advanced electric guitar soloist or in a band making a rock music video, playing guitar songs is also a form of communication. It has the power to bring people together and foster a sense of belonging and connection. You are not simply revising from a school book or taking lessons at home with a teacher, you are creating precious memories and paving the road for great friendships. 

 

Why is learning guitar important?

Guitar lessons Ballarat can be a pathway to studying music at a tertiary level. A beginner under the guidance of Superprof teachers can grow as a student and gain the experience and training they need for a life-long music career. Who knows, you might be a rockstar in London! Guitar players are both multitaskers and dexterous, students will learn beginners techniques on how to pluck, pick, and strum a chord.

By playing guitar you will become familiar on how to read musical notation. Your instructor will often offer the first class free, teaching beginners time intervals, scales, chords, and how to re-create sheet music from their home. This will no doubt make it much easier to learn other instruments later down the track. 

Happiness, excitement, pride, sadness - these are just some of the emotions we experience through songs. Guitar can bring out a side you never knew you had! Many school teachers view music as a great stress reliever, a way to increase students' motivation and improve their mood. With guitar lessons, you can gain insight and appreciation of diverse cultures and places. Students can learn about history (medieval, war periods) and different eras (contemporary, renaissance, romantic). You may even be inspired to travel and play the blues in America, flamenco in Spain, rebetiko in Greece, or head to Abbey Road in London!

One of the best benefits of playing guitar is that you are free to bring it anywhere. Stir up some nostalgia on a road trip, start a spontaneous singalong at home, play an easy acoustic song with friends around a campfire, or serenade that special someone!

 

Rock? Blues? Classical? Jazz? Find the right lesson for you

There are a variety of music styles and many options for beginners to choose from. You’ll need to do your research. Watch a video online or read through a book to see what you’re passionate about, see which songs you connect with, and what best inspires you. Something soulful? Filled with electric riffs and guitar chords? Perhaps you'd like an acoustic rock song out of London? Choosing the right music view for you will make the beginner experience more enjoyable. 

There are plenty of free resources to read online for beginners, intermediate or more advanced students. Your teacher can also help you navigate the different chords, styles, and techniques unique to each music genre whether it be classical or rock. During your guitar lessons, you may like to explore new harmonies, scales, chord progressions, etc. Are you going to play bass with a pick? Or strum a chord with your fingers?

The right guitar lesson should be pitched at the right level. The complexity and speed of teaching should be suitable for the student depending if they are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Sure you may run into some learning curves, however, you must remember learning guitar is a journey that requires commitment. The starting point of your lesson should not be too overwhelming, you’ll want ease into the teaching. Later on, your tutor may like to try a new challenge and play a different chord. Would you be willing to go from an intermediate pop tune to an advanced classical song? Or are you ambitious and would try a tricky bass guitar?

Speaking of the actual guitar, you’ll need to choose the right instrument. There are 3 main types (each with variations): bass, electric, and acoustic. A beginner student will often start with an easy acoustic guitar chord, however, be sure to talk this through with your teachers or a fellow musician who may be able to give some free tips and tricks or refer a good book. If you don’t have your own instrument, don’t sweat it! View tutors online who will be able to provide one when teaching. As you practice different chords on different models you may even pick up some new transferable skills!
