How many guitar lessons do I need to get good?
The amount of guitar lessons you need to get good depends on many factors, including your natural talent, your dedication to practicing, and the complexity of the techniques and styles you want to learn. The reality is, it takes time and consistent effort to become a good guitar player. Even with regular lessons, progress can take several months or even years. The number of guitar lessons you need also depends on your individual goals. If you want to learn how to strum some basic chords and play a few simple songs, you may only need a few lessons to get started. However, if you want to become the next Jimmy Hendrix and master more complex techniques and styles, you may need to take lessons for a longer period of time. The goal of taking guitar lessons is to improve your skills and have fun playing the instrument. Rather than focusing on a specific number of lessons, it's more important to set goals for what you want to achieve and work with your instructor to develop a plan to help you reach those goals.

What age is best to start learning guitar?
The best age to learn to play guitar is totally dependant on the persons interest, motivation, and physical ability. In general, there is no "right" age to start learning guitar, as it is possible to learn at any age, from children as young as 4 years old to adults in their 80s or 90s. That being said, there are some factors to consider when deciding if you or your child is ready to start learning guitar. Younger children may have smaller hands and may struggle to reach certain chords or notes. However, they may benefit from starting with a smaller-sized guitar or ukulele to make it easier to play. Older children and adults may have more developed fine motor skills and may be able to progress more quickly. However, they may also have other commitments and responsibilities that can make it more challenging to find time for regular practice. Ultimately, the best age to learn to play guitar is whenever the individual has a strong interest in learning and is willing to commit to regular practice. A good guitar teacher can work with students of all ages to help them develop their skills and achieve their musical goals.
How often should I practice guitar?
To make progress on the guitar, it's important to practice regularly. How often you should practice depends on your musical goals and free time, but in general, most guitar teachers recommend practicing for at least 20-30 minutes a day, 5-7 days a week. This consistent practice schedule will help you build muscle memory, improve your technique, and make progress more quickly. It's important to note that the quality of your practice is more important than the quantity. A focused, productive practice session can be more effective than a longer practice session where you're not fully focused. When practicing, it's helpful to set specific goals and work on specific skills or techniques, rather than just playing through the same songs or exercises each time. On the other hand, it's important to listen to your body and avoid practicing for too long without taking breaks. Playing guitar can be physically demanding, and taking regular breaks can help prevent fatigue and injury. Our lessons are once every week, that give you all the tools you need to practise throughout the week, improve your skills and learn to rock out to your favourite songs.
