The internet has made the world a smaller place. We can access just about anything at the click of a button – guitar lessons included. There really is no better time to be an aspiring guitarist.
If you’re considering embarking on a journey to learn guitar online, I’ve got three benefits to share with you. You already know that online guitar lessons are cheaper, so I’ve chosen three somewhat unexpected benefits to get you inspired. Do keep in mind, these benefits only apply if you invest in quality guitar lessons.
Let’s get started!
1. Learn guitar online at your own pace
Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Some weeks you get ill, others you’re completely snowed under at school or work. You don’t always have time to devote your full attention to your instrument.
When you learn guitar online, you can approach your lessons at a time that suits you. If you miss a week, you don’t have to worry about calling and cancelling your lesson.
Instead, you can formulate a flexible guitar learning schedule that meets your unique needs, including your work or school hours, family commitments, and social life.
2. Access the world’s best teachers
You may love where you live, but that doesn’t mean you have access to quality guitar lessons. What’s more, if you’re interested in learning via the proven Trinity College London method, finding a suitable teacher may be even more challenging.
The web gives to access to some of the best teachers in the business, where ever they are in the world.
This benefit does come with a warning. Please be aware that there are many online guitar lessons that over-promise and under-deliver. Be wary of any extreme promises, such as ‘Become a guitar master in 7 days’ or similar. These will leave you out-of-pocket, frustrated, and ready to give up. Do your research, and only invest in lessons that have a proven track record of success.
Furthermore, many of these use rote learning techniques which mean you copy what they do for a particular song, and you don’t really learn how to read music and you certainly won’t be able to pick up any sheet music later on and be able to play.
3. Revisit techniques you have trouble with
Some online guitar lessons – including ours here at The Steve Flack Guitar Academy – give you lifelong access. This means you can revisit techniques and compositions that you have trouble with again and again until you nail it.
