Frequently Asked Questions
Every child is different and progresses at adifferent rate. Some children are ready forguitar lessons by the age of 6, others needa little longer to develop. This is why weoffer a FREE Introduction To Guitar sessionso that we can meet your child and assesswhether they are ready for guitar lessonsand recommend which program will bestsuit their educational needs.
The duration of your guitar playing journeyis determined by a lot of factors includingthe style of music you like, the kind ofguitar player you wish to be and whetheryou want to be a hobby player or aprofessional player. You will be able to learnto play a collection of Ed Sheeran songs onacoustic guitar much quicker than you willbe able learn the solos to your favouriteAC/DC tracks. It is all relative to your goalsand what you are trying to achieve. Expect to be learning for around 2 years tobe able to comfortably play the chords, riffsand solos to basic radio level pop/rock/top40 songs. Some people get to this level in 6months, others take a bit longer but thevast majority of our students progressfaster than average and achieve their goalssooner than they thought possible.
We have created our own internal gradingsystem called the Guitar Ninjas Programwhich originally made because we foundthat traditional exam programs focused toomuch on dated classical music and didn’tresonate with contemporary guitarstudents. Having said that we’ve had great successtaking our students through AMEB,Rockschool, and VCE exams and canarrange to take students through examprograms upon request.
Our studio is open from 2:00pm to 9:00pmMonday to Friday and 9am to 3:00pm onSaturday. We also run morning and earlyafternoon session on appointment. Wehave very flexible hours and canaccomodate any schedule including shiftworkers and people who travel a lot.
We recommend that you choose a guitarbased on the styles of music you want tolearn and the kind of guitarist you wish tobe. If you want to learn primarily acousticguitar songs, start on an acoustic, if youwant to be a rock guitar god, it’s best to gostraight to electric. We recommend childrenstart on a 3/4 size electric guitar whenbudget allows, otherwise a 1/2 or 3/4 sizeacoustic will do.
