Guitar Lessons FAQs
Where should I start if I want to learn electric guitar?
Starting with a guitar can feel overwhelming for a complete beginner, but taking it one step at a time can make the process enjoyable and satisfying. Everyone learns differently, but one thing is always the same – you need a good foundation from a good teacher to learn. Before you buy an electric or acoustic guitar, taking a edicated class with a great teacher is a perfect way to get familiar with the basics.
An experienced instructor can take you through the fundamentals of playing and introduce you to exercises and simple songs that will strengthen your technique. Doing this will allow you to make steady progress towards mastering the guitar! Sign up for our electric guitar lessons in Melbourne today.
What is the best way to learn rock guitar?
Learning guitar is an incredibly rewarding experience, and the best way to achieve that is to take classes from an experienced guitarist and qualified instructor. Not only will taking classes provide you with instruction and guidance in playing, but it will also give you access to tips on theory and technique so you can attain more advanced skills or become a professional guitarist.
Joining a class can help build your confidence and network by linking you up with other players who are learning too. Taking classes may also open up opportunities for performances, recordings, or collaborations with fellow musicians.
Finding the right class is key, so start with The SoundLab. We offer plenty of classes and teaching styles to cater to your needs. Sign up for your first lesson today!
How many hours a day should I be practising guitar?
Whether you’re learning electric guitar or classical guitar, you need to practise. It is difficult to specify the exact number of hours that should be dedicated to guitar practice each day as everyone learns at their own pace. However, taking regular classes with a qualified instructor can greatly speed up the process and learning curve for the instrument. It is highly recommended to join a class if you are looking to pursue this instrument seriously, as structure and support from experienced professionals can take you further than practising alone. With that being said, taking classes or not, you must make time out of your day for regular practice; even an hour every other day will bring great progress when done consistently over time.
