FAQ

 

Should I buy an acoustic, or an electric guitar?

If you are new to guitar lessons, an electric or acoustic guitar will be fine. If you plan on playing rock, blues, jazz, country etc…you should buy a steel string guitar. Classical guitars are designed to play with different technique. These guitars have nylon strings and a wider neck.

Do I need a piano to take lessons?

Ideally yes. However, many students do learn on electronic keyboards. If you do purchase an electric keyboard, we recommend regular sized keys and a touch sensitive keyboard. A touch sensitive keyboard means if you press a key harder, it will play louder and if you press a key softer, it will play quieter.

How long does it take to learn?

 

There is no sure answer here. Of course regular practice will give you the best results. Weekly lessons are also the best motivater to attain your goals.

What size guitar is the correct size?

For young children, a 3/4 size guitar is a good choice. If you are not sure, have your child hold the guitar in their lap. If they can touch the first fret with their elbow bent at around a 45 to 90 degree angle, the size of the guitar should be fine.

Do I need a full drum set to take drum lessons?

A full drum set is not necessary. Many students learn on practice pad kits. These are round rubber pads that simulate the feel of hitting drums.

What if I miss a lesson?

If you cannot make your scheduled lesson, please call the school or your teacher as far in advance as possible. Make up lessons are at the discreation of your teacher. Please discuss with your teacher their policy on re-scheduling a make-up lesson.
