What will I learn with professional training that I can’t learn on my own?
Dumbest question of all time though we’ll take it upon ourselves to answer that nevertheless! You can easily make out the difference between a trained guitarist and a self taught guitarist playing. Timing does not figure out anywhere for the self taught. The short answer is that professional music instructors will coach you on technique, which is paramount (something a DVD or the internet can’t do), introduce and explain you countless lessons which you won’t find anywhere, correct the flaws you have technically, correct you when you go wrong, keep you motivated and excited about music, expose you to many styles and teach you how to read music, tablature, to understand music theory and much more. Just like sports, investing and exercise, getting your information and technique tips from a pro is always the best choice in any situation. If this info is not sufficient you might as well watch TV instructions and learn cooking instead!
How much should I practice?
Obviously, the more you practice; the faster you will notice improvement. On average, you should practice at least 30 minutes a day. Motivation to practice comes from within, from the desire to play something well. Be patient with yourself!
Do I need to buy books?
No. Guitar Hall will provide you with all books,sheets,study material and instruments. Keep all your materials neat and bring them for each lesson.
If I haven’t practiced, should I come in for my lesson?

How often am I needed to attend sessions?

Do you recommend an hour lesson or 2 hours lesson?
All students can achieve enough direction and instruction in an hour. Though more advanced players, students from Module 3 and 4 would be required to attend 2 hours session.

Do I need an instrument?
Absolutely. You can’t learn horse riding without a horse!At every session right from the day you join Guitar Hall, lots of material would be taught to you in the class, which you are expected to practice at home, which you need to come prepared with for the next session. You need to show us that and then we proceed further. That’s how we function at Guitar Hall. Hence having a guitar at home is of paramount importance.
How long does it take to get good in guitar playing?
Exactly 7 months, 1 week, 3 days and 6.25 hours — just kidding!!! This is a tricky question because everyone’s opinion of “good” is different. The more you practice, the faster you (and others) will notice improvement. It is important to remember that music is an art form, not a competition like tennis. There are certain basics that one should learn and fully understand. Once that is achieved, more complicated material will be easier to comprehend. To actually play it will take practice, more for some and less for others.
