         Guitar lessons or downloads?


  All guitar lessons are not the same, just as all teachers are not
  the same.  Guitar lessons or downloads what's the best way to
  learn? Today there is a variety of ways to learn guitar the
  challenge is finding the most effective way for you.

  Firstly what are your goals, what you do want to achieve, in what
  time frame? Do you want to be a non-professional, semi-
  professional or professional guitarist? These are the type of
  questions you need to ask. Which style of learning will serve you
  best guitar lessons or downloads.

  Guitar lessons can be a marvelous opportunity for adults to take
  time out of their day-to-day routines and find new outlets for
  their creative expression and they are certainly cheaper than
  therapy sessions.

  So let's take a look are your goals, realistically what do you
  want to achieve in the next twelve months?

  - do you want to jam with other musicians?

  - do you want to play for family and friends?

  - do you want to learn that cool song you've always wanted to play?

  Do you see how I'm thinking?

  Lessons are a discipline like anything else you need to make a
  decision & stick do it. Guitar lessons with a private tutor or
  downloads from the Internet, here's a snapshot of both
  styles of tuition.

  Internet lessons

  Before choosing the lessons of a certain on line tutorial-
  providing website over the lessons of another, it is
  recommendable to ask for the advice of your friends or other
  persons in whom you trust in order to find out whether those
  particular guitar lessons are efficient or not.

  How much do you value your time?

  It's very easy to blow 5-10 hours a week mindlessly surfing the
  net looking for tips, if you're focused you could spend that time
  learning the things you really wanted to play.

  Yes, Internet lessons do appear to be cheaper than private
  lessons ... Internet lessons are convenient - learn when you want
  to in the comfort of your own home, no traveling etc, and
  there's the various free guitar lessons to get your feet wet in
  the learning process of guitar music playing.

  Private lessons

  If you have money, time, and are prepared to put the work in,
  this is one of the most effective routes to take, because they'll
  correct any bad habits, and your guitar lessons are one-to-one.

  Guitar lessons are offered under the instruction of qualified,
  experienced and professional teachers.  Private guitar lessons
  are usually once a week, half an hour, and one on one.

  Now, just because the teacher has a qualification does not mean
  that can help you. What type of teacher is best for you will
  depend on:

  - the type of music you want to play, just because a guitar
  teacher has a qualification does not mean they can (a) play the
  music you are interested (b) have any understanding of the theory
  behind that style of music.

  The world is full of classically trained (and qualified) guitar
  teachers who don't have a clue about modern music.

  There's just as many un-qualified teachers who don't have the
  faintest idea about (a) reading music (b) anything outside the
  current pop song on the radio or the latest tab they downloaded

  By the way, if you're going to pay for private lessons, make
  certain you do some research on the teacher :

  - has the teacher had a successful performing/teaching career?

  - has any of his/her students been successful in the music

  The bottom line

  Guitar lessons or downloads they both work, if you're clear about
  your goals, if you're focused, internally motivated and
  disciplined, guitar lessons or downloads will both deliver... the
  question is always what is the source of the information?

  Good players don't necessarily make good teachers and you can easily
  find a website that offers 2,599 videos for an unbelievable price, but,       fair warning: it's not the quantity of the information, it's the quality of       the knowledge of how to put it all together that's the key!

  Guitar lessons or downloads they're great options why not try a
  combination of both? Do your research first and avoid the confusion and   frustration!

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:


As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mike’s teaching gives his student’s the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The course is varied, in-depth and well-structured, making learning and comprehension fast, thorough and enjoyable. It’s a great way of learning, as you can pace yourself and move onto the next stage when you feel competent. I find this course both innovative and inspirational. I find myself leaving Mike’s lessons with the determination to reach my new goals.
