Skype Guitar Lessons for Beginners –
If you are looking to learn the guitar in the comfort of your own home, Skype Guitar Lessons for Beginners is a great way to do it!
There is no travelling involved and you have a choice of teachers – anywhere in the world!
Of course finding a good experienced teacher who plays in the style you want to learn is essential.
Look no further – you’ve come to the right place!
Things You Need
- A computer with a webcam – most laptops have this already
- Free Skype software downloaded on it
- A good internet connection
- A guitar
If connection problems occur, the time missed will be made up at no extra charge.
When kids get home from school and get on their computers the internet can run slowly – and at other times for no reason too!
Tuning Your Guitar
It is best to have your guitar already tuned (if possible). An electronic tuner is ideal but you can also tune it up using an online website such as an online guitar tuner – just click on the tuning pegs (machine heads).
If you are a beginner, be careful not to over-tighten strings as they can break – easily replaced though!
For the more difficult aspects of techniques and riffs, Skype allows three minute videos to be made and these are great for referring back to, after the lesson. I often make a short video for reference.
My current pupils include those who are preparing for music exams such as Rockschool Graded Guitar Exams and also students who are just learning the guitar for fun and enjoy the challenge of a new skill.
Age Range for Guitar Lessons
In my 40 years as a guitar teacher, I have taught students as young as 6 years old to adults in their 80’s.
The very young take a bit longer to learn than teenagers for example, and the mature students take a bit longer to learn too, mainly because it has been a while since they were in full time education.
It doesn’t matter how long it takes or how slow your progress is, it’s the journey that counts and the enjoyment and sense of achievement gained.
I get just as much pleasure from teaching a mature person who has just started to learn guitar as one who is highly capable and at an advanced level.
