Guitar for the Beginner FAQ


Q1 What is the best age to learn guitar ?


A: I  like to answer this question with another, and that is what is the best “ mindset ” to have when learning….. Well as it turns out, research shows that having a positive mindset as well as sounding useful, helps you build your learning skills no matter what your age. The right goals and thoughts will give you the enjoyment that life long learners experience.



Q2: Which is better online or in person ( studio ) lessons ?


A2: They both have their advantages and disadvantages pick one that’s you think you will get the most out of.  If distance is a consideration the online lessons might be for you. Don’t fret too much about whether you have made the  “perfect“ choice   Just pick one maybe you can change this later, perhaps pick a combination of the two options.



Q3:  Can I guitar learn from Youtube ?


Yes and it’s free :) But there is an obvious downside.  That is there isn’t any direct feedback, you can’t ask questions

you might not notice your mistakes. The most obvious downside of learning guitar on YouTube as a complete beginner is that there’s no direct feedback.

You might not notice your mistakes, and you won’t be able to ask questions or get immediate feedback. You might pick up some bad habits. For the beginner guitarist it’s likely that there is too much information out there. You have to leading to sort through unnecessary and endless information leading to learning in an instructed way.
