Overview

Too many options for guitar lessons?

Are you or someone you know a beginner?

Read on to know what learning and playing guitar is like with me, and also what to look for in a teacher.

Learning the mechanics of guitar playing requires sufficient repetition of movement as it's necessary to build precise control of the instrument to create pleasant sounds. Put simply, practice makes perfect.

Most pieces of music (songs) call upon the player to use multiple techniques at once (e.g. strumming to create rhythm, and fingering and switching chords to call upon the notes). Each technique takes practice to master and can be overwhelming to accomplish all at once. So it's a good idea for beginners to focus on one fundamental technique at a time before moving on to master another.

This is where I focus on the coaching aspect of learning–ensuring that students understand the importance of prioritization of technique and repetition. It is through this method of practice and learning that students will also be introduced to related aspects of playing such as rhythm, pitch, and understanding of the structures of musical pieces and songs.

Having accomplished the fundamentals, beginners should thereafter be able to learn and play popular songs on their own. In the course of learning with me, students may expect lessons for songs that I will be using as examples of the techniques taught. Students may also request to learn particular songs through me.

Intermediate learners may also have to focus on such repetition to build technique where necessary, however, there are also other elements of music that they may be interested in learning which may not require so much rote repetition as much as experimentation (such as phrasing—building melodies on the fly).

Here is the takeaway for students: focus on one thing at a time till you get it right, and find a teacher that can help you create a structure of milestones for you to climb!

"Agnaye is an awesome Teacher. He brings out the best in you. He keenly observes the way you learn and provides feedback and techniques to improve your skill. His methodology of teaching is different and matches the pace of the student. I highly recommend him for Novice to Advanced learners. "

"Agnaye is a passionate musician and is committed to his students. He is methodical and has managed to interest my 6 yr old to learn and enjoy his guitar lessons. His choice to break free from an age old music lesson plan and introduction of classic & contemporary songs gives his class a "School of Rock" kinda environment and the kids love it!! We hope you stay with our group of kids and see them through reach places. "

"Agnaye tutors both my son(10yrs) & daughter (13yrs) and is a wonderful teacher. He has introduced them to guitar and continues to hold their interest with his kid friendly approach to teaching them at their respective pace. Their interest has only increased over time and they look forward eagerly to their weekly class with him. He is creative, patient and encouraging. Wish it was more frequent !! Would highly recommend him as a teacher. "

"I think the standout thing about Agnaye is that he very clearly loves what he does. And there are many things that follow from there. He tailors the lessons to suit a specific student not only basis his or her ability, but also, very importantly, as per the individual's music preferences. So with Agnaye you are not sitting in a class with multiple people learning a song you are just not interested in playing! He is very invested in your learning & growth on a one-on-one basis. He takes more trouble than anyone I have ever met, to make sure a student is comfortable. From going with you to buy your guitar to buying you a foot stool to changing your broken strings...well quite honestly I don't know anyone who does that. It only helps that Agnaye is very personable, warm and funny an individual. He's been my teacher for the past few months now and I look forward to the days when we play. I don't know the last time I said that about any teacher. Ever. In a nutshell, if i were to do it all over again, I'd still pick him as my guitar teacher! "

My personal opinion is that Ibanez acoustics are not the best, Yamaha's acoustics sound better and are easier to play on.

If you trawl through acoustic guitar forums, you're likely to hear the same things from acoustic players from all parts of the world. If you do decide to go with Ibanez, please make sure that the action (distance between string and fret — the lines on the neck of the guitar) is not too high. On Ibanez acoustics, I find that the saddle needs to be filed down to achieve low action (saddle is the white plastic on the body where the strings end). The filing of saddles and truss rod adjustment is a routine affair, don't hesitate to ask the store assistants to help you set up your guitar for low action. Have fun!

My bad Ashwani, because you mentioned the scale and said take the 1, 4th and 5th, I was thinking you were talking about forming a triad. Yes, you're right now that I understand what you're trying to say.

I think Ashwani meant 1, 3rd and 5th or C, E and G will give you the C major chord, not 1st, 4th and 5th.

It's very simple, the answer is practice! Keep at it daily, and after a few weeks you will suddenly realise you can sound and switch between open chords very quickly!

I agree with all of the above. If you enjoy guitar (you won't know till you try it out!), you will learn faster. If you don't find it fun, as some people feel when they try learning, you will stop practicing, get discouraged quickly and stop trying to learn.

Having said that, my best student is in his mid thirties and some of my average students are very young kids. So, give it a shot, if you like it and practice everyday till your fingers tire out (half an hour to an hour), you'll be able to play a basic arrangement of most popular songs within a year. Good luck to you!
