So How Exactly How Will You Become a Great Guitar Player?

I often say this phrase to my students;

 

‘Repetition, repetition, repetition.’

 

Getting better at guitar isn’t complicated, you just need to repeat the right things for the right amount of time and in the right order.

 

Yes, it takes work. Yes, you will need to practice consistently. Yes, you will need to repeat things a lot.

 

But great guitar players you know of aren’t born with some mystical natural talent, they found out how to harness the power of repeating the right things over and over and over but crucially, in the right way.

 

Let me repeat that, they practice the right things the right way, over and over.

It's through gradual, small improvements over time that bigger, more noticeable improvements are made. And in 12 months time when your friends, family and other people around you start to notice and complement you, that will in turn build your confidence.

 

Anybody who tells you that guitar playing comes naturally to some and not others has more than likely missed the point of what actually made those people great players. Yes, some are a bit quicker, but nobody gets the gains without putting in the work, nobody.

 

How Are You Going to do This in Just 15 Minutes Per Day?

 

It is possible to make improvements to your playing in just 15 minutes per day but you have to remain consistent and do it every single day, no exceptions! Leave all your practice until Sunday afternoon and I promise you will see next to zero gains, I've seen it happen.

 

If your life is too busy to manage this, it’s probably better to save guitar lessons for another time.

 

And if you don’t like to repeat things a lot then becoming a great guitar player will remain a dream.

 

Are You Ready?

 

If you’re ready to put in the work, repeat chord changes, scales & melodies over and over, then you’re ready to take lessons.

 

Do you find yourself going round in circles on YouTube? Or trying to figure everything out on your own?

 

You don’t need to.

 

In our guitar lessons, you will have a set routine each week so you will know exactly what to practice.

Who These Lessons Are Not For

Guitar lessons Bath UK

Some of these points may sound harsh but honesty is important in the relationship between teacher and student, your teacher is the one holding you accountable after all. Learning to play the guitar isn't something that you can do overnight. If it was, the chances are you wouldn't be reading this page right now, you know that it's something worth having in your life. There is a very specific mindset you need to adopt if you want to reach your goals and succeed in playing your favourite songs and there are very specific approaches that will get you there quickly. Here are some reasons you might not want to take lessons:

It's not the right time

If you're at a stage in life where you simply feel the time isn't right, then wait until it is before you decide to commit. That way, when you finally go ahead with it, you'll feel all the more ready.

You don't have the time

For beginner players, you absolutely must do 15 minutes practice per day, five days per week plus your weekly lesson. If this time isn't available to you then you'd be better off saving your money until you can confidently put that regular time aside to become a better guitarist.

The cost is an issue

Here's a difficult truth for some but I want to be as upfront as possible. You're much better off investing in a good teacher that will ease your frustration so that you can feel motivated to continue on your guitar journey than settling for less because it's cheaper. After all, you get what you pay for.

Who These Lessons Are For

Here are some of the reasons you might be ready for lessons

You have a passion for music

If you find yourself passionate, exited and motivated by guitar playing, then these lessons are absolutely for you! That passion combined with good direction and a weekly practice routine will help you reach your guitar goals.

You want high quality lessons

If you want high quality guitar lessons and you have the budget, then these lessons are for you. Having a reliable teacher who provides you with the tools to succeed will ensure you go from frustration to jubilation!

You're highly motivated

If you're highly motivated and want to get started right away, these lessons are what you're looking for. We can work together to achieve guitar greatness!
