If you have answered yes to any of the above then you are not alone. I once felt the same way as you. There is a way to overcome this frustration. I can show you how to eliminate these roadblocks. I have helped many people just like you and I am confident I can help you as well!
The teacher matters
Goal oriented practice
There is a saying that goes “practice makes perfect,” but the truth is, “perfect practice makes perfect.” Knowing how and what to practice with a goal in mind is what gets real results, fast.
Having the right teacher to guide you and keep you on the path towards your guitar playing goals is an essential element to your success. Having a mentor to quickly answer questions that arise will keep you motivated and moving forward.
Most guitar teachers will not have proven systems in place. They wing their lessons on the spot and nothing ever gets documented or measured. With most guitar teachers there is no curriculum, no goal setting, no organizational or practice-time management instructions.
Guitar lessons are not the same from teacher to teacher, and it can be hard to find a great guitar instructor with a road map to your success, a deep passion for the instrument and for sharing their love of it. This helps fuel your desire to reach your goals. The flame should be passed on from your teacher to you. This way you gain confidence and a passion that once ignited, will last a lifetime.
Your guide to avoid common pitfalls
Learn fast and efficiently
When I say fast I do mean fast! You will have fun and make progress right away. But massive guitar playing success is incremental and comes within weeks and months and years. The reason results with me are FAST is because you will avoid years or decades of practicing haphazardly, avoid common bad habbits and pitfalls, avoid spending money on inadequate teachers, avoid spending money on materials like books, DVD’s while frustratingly trying to teach yourself.
When you find youself in those common pitfalls what usually ends up happening is that you never leave the “beginner” stages of playing the guitar. I know people who have played for 20 and 30 years and are still at a very basic level on this instrument. Totally unnecessary! I have experienced many of the same obstacles that keep us at the beginner level on guitar. Why? Because I did not have the knowledge or the right teacher to help me do it any differently. How is it that we can have so much guitar learning information available to us online and everywhere else but yet so many people still stay at a basic level?
The reason is this: with no order to it can be completely overwhelming. How are we supposed to structure our goals out of all this chaos, with no guidance, and no one to correct our mistakes? If you have no coach correcting your mistakes you will become… better at the mistakes!
What Students Are Saying
I have a better understanding of playing in time, and changing to the beat. My chord changes have become more fluid and smooth. I have also learned new strumming techniques. Because the lessons are so enjoyable, I am also more dedicated to practicing what I have learned at home
Overcoming my walls
When Mickey put on additional drum tracks and played along, it felt like playing in a real band and making real music. The instructor "Mickey" is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and the lessons are definitely worth it.
Mickey has improved my rhythm, timing, and strumming in the short time I have been with him. I look forward every week to my lesson and enjoy leaning something new from Mickey. This is my very first time with a guitar teacher and I would highly recommend Mickey.
