Look for a teacher to come home to teach or look for an online teacher.

If you are looking for someone to teach at your home, you should be willing to pay the teacher a little more for their traveling convience, etc. And if you are planning to learn online you will need to have access to the internet with a decent speed. Either ways, it will cost a little extra than what you would ideally pay by going to an institute or the teacher's place. But you will be saving on the travelling time. If you need any more details, you can get in touch with me.

Though it is a good idea to start with music at an early age, we need to consider that the vocal chords are still developing and hence only a light singing is recommended. Usually songs without a wide range. For any more details you can contact me.

Yes. It could be difficult to learn Guitar basics. But so is learning Spanish. Or even learning Hindi. But remember basics form the bottom of the pyramid upon which you have to build your guitar playing. The broader your base the bigger a pyramid you shall build. :)

Yes. For example, expensive acoustic guitars are made from better quality of wood compared to the cheaper guitars.
