There are claims that you can learn anything using YouTube. All you need is an internet connection and some time to view the videos. Many new people who want to learn the guitar often start by watching YouTube tutorials and it can be a fun, inexpensive way to learn a few basics.
There are reasons why many of my students prefer one on one tuition to YouTube. While YouTube is great as an introduction, most students find they learn a lot more in one hour with me than they do spending days on YouTube searching for the ideal YouTube tutorial.
Here are the key differences.
We work together as a team to ensure you become the guitar player you always dreamed of becoming. In a lesson with me, I can discover your stumbling blocks, and assess your current ability. Lessons are then tailored specifically to you, in order to make sure you reach your full potential. YouTube videos are tailored for the masses and unlikely to be at a level you’re at currently, as they assume every guitar player is the same, whereas I know we should celebrate, and capitalise on, your differences.
As you play I will give you feedback and demonstrate ways in which you can use your own habits to hone your guitar playing skills. I’ll be able to see which areas you excel at and which need improvement, thus accelerating your learning and making guitar lessons more productive for you overall.
