If you’re just beginning, you’ll find that there are numerous options for starter guitars. You’ll need to purchase, rent or borrow your own instrument because you’ll have to practice on your own instrument. Reliable beginning guitar packages - whether acoustic or electric – can be found at around $150.00. A quiet space all your own, set aside for practice should be sought out as well.

A portion of what we do during the lesson time is how and/or what to practice. Much of what the student does on their own is simply maintaining the gains already made. “Gains” are made incrementally and should be respected. Quite possibly the most constructive practice session is done immediately after your lesson. The ideas conveyed or introduced are fresher and not as likely to be forgotten. Of course, questions, specific tune or material ideas are always a fixture within the plan as well.
