Whether acoustic, electric or bass we all know that playing the guitar is a symbol of skill, creativity and just cool. It's a hobby many of us will pick up at some point during our lives, but few ever make it to a truly advanced level. If you want to become an expert guitar player, the first step is to get a great teacher. Of course, there's a world of free online information to find about learning to play the guitar, but none of these can compare to lessons with a professional teacher in a private studio. They can be there to help and motivate you during classes to be the best guitarist you can be! You can go from a beginner who only knows a few chords or scales, to an experienced guitarist in no time. You could even write a new hit song or start your own rock band.
Other than just being able to play a fun musical instrument, there are so many good reasons to start learning to play the guitar with a private teacher. Lesson after lesson, you'll be able to build confidence, relieve stress and express yourself creatively. The community of guitarist and musicians in Hobart, Tas, Australia and around the world is one of the best things about learning to play the guitar. You can connect with people from beginner to advanced levels at gigs or online and share your unique ideas and voice. You might even find a group of people to start a new band with.
We can't fail to mention the great cognitive effects playing a guitar, or any musical instrument, can have on your brain. In a University of Zurich study, researchers found that when you play the guitar, the parts of the brain where memory is stored are stimulated. This means that playing an instrument helps to improve memory as well as focus. Students have also been found to get better at multitasking the more they play. You have so many jobs to do while playing the guitar. You're reading chords, moving your fingers to make the right chords, strumming in time and maybe even singing all at the same time. It's no wonder advanced guitarists are expert multitaskers, and this is a skill you can apply in many areas of your life.
We can also find benefits from playing the guitar for your mental and emotional health. In a study completed by the Mind-Body Wellness Center together with the Loma Linda University School of Medicine and Applied Biosystems, it was found that playing the guitar reduces stress and anxiety levels. As you work on your skills and see improvements, you'll build confidence in yourself and your skills, which is vital if you ever want to perform on stage. This can be a great way for children to feel free and comfortable with their creativity as well.
When you take lessons with a guitar school, you may have to follow a set curriculum, but with private teaching you're in charge of your own learning. Your teacher will be able to create classes based on your skill level (whether beginner, intermediate or advanced) as well as the things you're actually interested in. For beginner students, you'll generally start with some theory and the basics of guitar playing. Learning this theory at the start can make it much easier to learn as you get into more complex lessons. The three numbering systems is one of the first lessons you'll learn as a beginner. Each fret, string and finger has a number, and learning this well will help you to easily learn and remember the different chords.
But what are chords? When you place your fingers on the strings in different shapes, you create a group of notes, which is what we call a chord. Whether you want to learn classical piano or jazz guitar, you need to know the different chords to be able to create the chord progressions which make up melodies and songs. Placing your fingers correctly on the frets and strings isn't always an easy task, especially if you're just looking at video lessons or other online info. A private guitar teacher can show you each chord properly and work with you on them until they're perfect. Once students have experience playing different chords, they can start learning how to effortlessly change between them and start playing songs.
Of course, these are just the basic points, and your lessons will go into much more detail. There's so much that you take from music lessons with a professional music teacher, even as an intermediate or advanced student. People who have years of experience may still have gaps in their learning and theory that they can fill in through private teaching. If you're an advanced student of the acoustic guitar, you could use lessons with your music teacher to transfer your skills to a bass or electric guitar or both. Of course there are lots of different genres of guitar playing, from blues to jazz to rock and pop. Each of these genres has it's own stylistic features that can be great fun to learn. For example, jazz guitar involves quick changes and improvisation using a bass or acoustic guitar, while a rock melody might include sting picking and bending on an electric guitar.
