Is it better to take guitar lessons or teach yourself?

Guitar lessons provide a structured learning environment for you to gradually improve. A guitar teacher will provide you with the right information at the right time in order for you gain “quick wins” and feel motivated by your progress.

It is possible to teach yourself and there are many free online resources to learn from. However students often find that these free resources do not provide enough structure and they lack the framework that a good teacher provides.

How many hours should you practice guitar a day?

For best results, we recommend that you practise at least 3 times a week. The amount of time that you practise is not the most important factor. For example, it is better to practise well for shorter periods of time than to “noodle” around for an extended period of time. Learning to practise well takes understanding and research. A good guitar teacher will help you understand the difference between good and bad practise.
