Starting Out on The Right Foot
The Beginner stage of your guitar journey is the most important stage you’ll go through as a guitarist. It’s the stage where your musical and technical foundations are built and your practice habits are developed. It’s also the stage where learning to play guitar feels most difficult, which can lead to feelings of frustration and overwhelm if you don’t do things correctly.
According to a Fender study, 90% of people who start learning the guitar give up within the first year.
That’s a lot. Too many.
To get through this crucial Beginner stage, you need to start off on the right foot. You need to develop a solid foundation of learning, consisting of the right outlook, correct technique, and effective practice strategies.
Through your Beginner Guitar Lessons in Cardiff with me, we’ll do just that!
The Right Outlook
Frustration, overwhelm, and self-defeat are your biggest enemies as a Beginner guitarist.
In your Beginner guitar lessons Cardiff, you’ll focus on developing a healthy outlook to learning guitar. An outlook that minimises frustration and overwhelm, and maximises inspiration, fulfilment, enjoyment, progress, and belief that you can learn to play.
Whatever movements your fingers consistently make, they will remember – good or bad. This phenomenon is called muscle memory, and it can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
In your Beginner guitar lessons Cardiff, you’ll be shown how to play guitar with correct technique from the very beginning. This will help you build a solid foundation of correct movements that will make playing guitar feel easier, and much more enjoyable.
Effective Practice Strategies
Most Beginner students jump around practising one thing to the next without any real thought. This approach dilutes their practice and slows progress.
In your Beginner guitar lessons Cardiff, you’ll learn what to practice and how to practice. You’ll learn how to choose the material that aligns with your current skillset. How to use a practice schedule for consistency and focus. How to break things down into manageable chunks. And how to work on things with attention to detail to achieve the results you’re after!
Taking Your First Step
Starting off on the right foot is absolutely essential for all Beginner guitar students. If you start off on the wrong foot, you could end up as one of Fenders 90%. But if you start strong, you’ll forge a long and healthy relationship with the guitar that can bring a lifetime of passion and enjoyment.
