Your First Guitar Lesson
To give you an idea of what we do on a first guitar lesson, we start by chatting about your goals. I will ask you what your experience is with music and guitar (and if the answer to that is “no experience whatsoever,” fantastic!), then we’ll talk about the kinds of music you want to play.
If you’re a beginner: I’ll give you a tour of the guitar, so you know which way is up, and how to strum it with correct technique so you won’t learn any bad habits. Then we’ll get working on your first song. I’ll show you how to play it and give you some extra tricks that will make it easy. At the end of the lesson you will have a better idea of what it will take to learn to play guitar, and you’ll walk away being able to play at least one song!
If you have some guitar experience: First we will talk more about what you know already so I can get an idea of where we should start. Then I’ll give you some ideas on directions we can take in the lessons that will boost your skill level and understanding of music fast. We’ll do some jamming or work on a specific song. At the end of the hour you’ll have a better idea of what’s required to take your guitar playing to the next level, and a plan for doing so.
