I have already been teaching for over 30 years now, at both public and state schools and in my own home practice. I've found no 2 pupils learn the same manner or pace. It is for the best if you be taught with a professional Classical Guitar Tutor, as they know what are realistic expectations for your learning, and will set accurate targets according to that. These smaller objectives will keep you stimulated and make sure you go on to learn the Classical Guitar in the long run.

I have already been teaching for over 30 years now, at both public and state schools and in my own home practice. I've found no 2 pupils learn the same manner or pace. It is for the best if you be taught with a professional Classical Guitar Tutor, as they know what are realistic expectations for your learning, and will set accurate targets according to that. These smaller objectives will keep you stimulated and make sure you go on to learn the Classical Guitar in the long run.

If you are a total novice, then a regular half hour session will be a good start. You will soon know the concepts and the more you learn, the more enjoyable it becomes. Learning the Classical Guitar is just like studying to do anything else in everyday life, the more time you spend doing it and the more hardwork you put into it, the more it will benefit you. I used to spend hours a day practicing whilst I was studying. Of course, not everybody may want to focus on the Classical Guitar as a professional, and instead as a leisure activity or as a skill. Learning by yourself will be difficult, and you may find yourself becoming upset with your progress or not being able to see an improvement. The Classical Guitar is technically complicated, so having a Classical Guitar teacher there will give you the assurance that you are learning the right way.

Ok, so you've decided to learn the Classical Guitar with a professional tutor. What do you have to get? Make sure you have the correct Classical Guitar. This is obviously the most important thing! Most good online and offline shops will have a specialist section on Classical Guitars, however your teacher may recommend a particular one. Make sure that you get the right size, as if it is too small your playing posture will develop poorly and if it's too big you will find it hard to reach across the fretboard. These requirements will depend upon your physical size etc, so talk to the shop staff or your Guitar Tutor.

Go to your first session with the appropriate guitar and any music books (if your teacher has suggested one for you). If it is your first lesson, it is likely that your Classical Guitar Tutor will already have some music books and helpful information for you to work from. Whilst picking your teacher, check they are a member of the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians) or Musicians Union, and that they have an up to date CRB check. It is always a good sign if the music tutor has a music room or studio if lessons are to be held at their home. Obviously, for a guitar teacher to be in a school, they will have been CRB checked and are usually a member of one of the organizations I have just described. But it would be a good thing to check to verify.

As a parent or guardian, don't feel afraid to speak to the instructor direct, and ask to see the CRB or Membership number if you want to.

Some people who don't want to agree to individual tuition straight away, could do a shared session with a friend but be warned, one of the friends may learn faster than the other one, so you run the risk of the quicker one being bored and the other friend being disheartened. This can be eliminated by having different lessons straight away.

Duet lessons and ensemble groups are the best way of playing together in a non comparative environment.

The Classical Guitar is a fulfilling instrument, and can help you to connect with your inner artist! I hope you enjoy your journey in learning to play the Classical Guitar.
