We have answered some of the most common questions asked about taking guitar lessons.
Absolutely, if you’ve never even touched a guitar before you’re more than welcome. I have taught many beginners over the years. Indeed, here at Guitar Lessons Swansea, you are never a beginner for long – we will have you strumming away in no time.
Yes. Though from experience I find children younger than 8 tend to struggle with the guitar, so I recommend starting your kids off from 8 and up.
This question is very much suited to you and how you learn. I do advise for younger students (age 8-11) that half hour lessons are sometimes better. Usually, students age 12 and up are more than capable of engaging for an hour. I often encourage students to try both, book an hour and a half hour lesson and see which feels best. It's your learning at your pace so pick the time slot that feels best to you.
I teach all my guitar lessons from Cranes Music Shop, in Saint Davids Shopping Centre (SA1 3LG) in central Swansea. It is a great place to learn to play the guitar, with easy access from across the city. Click on the map below to bring up my location on Google Maps.
Of course, you can take your lessons in electric or acoustic, the choice is yours.
I do have guitars that you would be welcome to use during lessons, however, I always advise that students bring and use their own. Learning and practising on your own instrument is key to becoming familiar with how your instrument feels. If you are going to buy your own guitar, I would recommend reading through the article about Guitar Shops in Swansea.
I certainly do, they are great for birthdays and other gifts - get in touch for more information.
Please note that Guitar Lessons Swansea operates a strict 24-hour cancellation policy. This means that if a lesson is cancelled within 24 hours of the arranged time the student will be charged the full price of the lesson. Should you need to cancel a lesson please contact me at your earliest opportunity to re-arrange.
