Virtuoso Guitarist and Musician

Learning how to play the acoustic guitar is a rewarding experience. There are many good reasons why the acoustic guitar is one of the most popular instruments to play, including:

1. You can take your acoustic guitar anywhere you go. Just put it in a case or strap it on your back and you’re good to go

2. It is a great instrument to accompany vocals. You simply strum the song’s chords to deliver the perfect backing

3. You don’t need electricity, effects pedals, an amp, or anything else to create a melody when playing the acoustic guitar. They sound great all by themselves.

4. You will have a quality and productive way to relax and unplug

5. You will be able to interact with a community of musicians and music lovers looking to sing, write, jam, etc.

6. Listening to music will become much more enjoyable, because you will be able to pull apart and understand the composition. With practice, you will even be able to write your own compositions.

7. Acoustics just sound great when finger picked or strummed. So you can increase your personal appeal and boost your confidence!

8. And as a bonus learning other instruments gets easier once you master the first one

A Quick tip for beginners: guitar lessons are ALWAYS a good idea. This does not necessarily mean that you should completely forego all efforts of teaching yourself, using videos, reading books, or learning on the internet. But along with all your efforts, especially if you have no prior experience with music, you should definitely seek out a teacher.

If you’re learning by yourself, and your progress looks good, then lessons will “greatly” accelerate your progress. Learning by yourself may seem like a good idea because you can take your time to learn difficult concepts. But lessons will definitely boost your progress, because you will have the guidance of an expert who knows the ideal routes to take much better than you!

And more importantly, your trainer will help to correct your misunderstandings and wrong steps. They have two things that you don’t currently have: knowledge and experience.

Assumptions that are misleading you!

If you are not a musician, or have never played an instrument before, becoming a player is more fun and easier than you imagine. Many beginners operate under multiple false assumptions about how challenging it is to learn the acoustic guitar. These people believe that:

  • They are too old to start learning music.

  • They need to learn from many different sources.

  • They have no musical talent and are not “musical.”

  • They need to learn to read music before playing an instrument.

  • They need to dedicate hours and hours of practice to learn just how to play an acoustic guitar well

  • You can teach yourself to save money.

  • It will take forever to overcome these challenges.

How serious are you about learning to play the acoustic guitar or are you just messing around with your guitar? Looking at the myths mentioned above will just derail and frustrate your efforts. Sometimes even a strong will can be broken without proper motivation, so seeking out acoustic guitar lessons in Lincoln may be a good idea for you.

The truth about these myths

Like many sports and activities, playing the guitar has evolved over time, and continues to change. It has become increasingly complex as new standards of excellence are being set all the time. Shutting yourself in a room, mixing different learning strategies, and focusing too much of your time on the not-so-important components can frustrate your learning experience.

Indeed, there are some people who pick up things fast on their own. This natural talent can only emerge if the individual learns the “right” things. That said, all people risk stagnating unless they’re learning, which is where lessons come into play.

If you don’t have much exposure to music, or musical talent, here is some good news for you – you don’t really need it. All you need to be a great acoustic guitar player is time. Playing the guitar is fundamentally about training your fingers to do strange things they are not “yet” used to. It doesn’t take talent – just good coaching and dedication.

The most professional acoustic guitar lessons you will find anywhere in Lincoln

When learning the acoustic guitar, it is important that the relevant information be presented in stages, and in an enjoyable manner that lets you grasp the key concepts for progress. So, what can you expect with lessons from a professional?

  • Beginner –Not sure where to start? How about hands-on playing from the very start using basic chords and strums, as you develop other skills including tuning and guitar care.

  • You know a little –If you have been playing for a few months and know a handful of chords, personalized lessons can help to expand your skill set, and improve chord transitions. As you gain more experience, you will learn bar chords which will help you play you favorite songs even better.

  • You are fairly experienced – You may need lessons to help expand your song repertoire and skills using rhythm and finger-style playing as you work on bar chords. It takes proper guidance to move easily between open position and bar chords.

Regardless of your skill level, what you need are personalized acoustic guitar lessons to help you develop correct technique and apply theoretical concepts in your playing.

What Some Of My Students Say About Lessons


I love music, but it takes me longer to learn. What should I do?

Don't worry; many people face the same challenge, and it's completely manageable. I highly recommend enrolling in a few of my sessions, which run 3-4 times a week.

What are your available days and times for lessons?

I’m available from Sunday & Monday late afternoon to early evening.

Why should I take lessons when there's so much free information online?

While there's a lot of information online, much of it is inaccurate and unverified. Online tutorials often lead to bad habits due to their sporadic teaching methods. In contrast, enrolling in structured lessons helps you learn progressively. Additionally, you'll get to play with fellow musicians and gain techniques, habits, and ideas that you can only acquire through formal lessons.

What makes you a better choice than other guitar trainers?

Our studio offers more than just private guitar lessons; we provide a comprehensive training workshop with group learning sessions. Our focus is on geometric learning, allowing you to progress more quickly. Moreover, I am a member of an International Guitar Teacher Organization, where several guitar teachers share ideas and techniques to help students learn efficiently and effectively.

Do you teach how to read music notes?

Yes, I do teach note reading, but in a unique way compared to the traditional methods. While it's not crucial for beginners, I offer note reading instruction for those interested, similar to how it's taught in piano lessons.

Is practice a part of your training program?

Absolutely. I recommend practicing for 30 minutes every day, six days a week, to master the guitar. Practicing more is even better since it's the most effective way to learn. Consistent practice helps reinforce what you've learned during lessons.

Will my fingers hurt when I start learning?

Yes, your fingers may hurt for the first couple of weeks, but this will stop once you develop calluses. After that, your fingers will adapt to the guitar strings. If your fingers are particularly sensitive, there are other options, like using finger picks, but it's best to start with your bare fingers.

I don't have a guitar. Can I borrow one from you?

I do have training guitars available for sessions. However, I don't offer a rental program. I recommend purchasing your own guitar or finding a rental program at a local guitar shop to use while learning.

Can I keep my nails long while playing guitar?

No, you need to keep your nails short to play the guitar correctly. Long nails will get in the way and make it difficult to play. To avoid damaging your nails, it's best to keep them trimmed.

Do you offer lessons for children?

Yes, I offer guitar training sessions for children as young as 8 years old. For younger children, ukulele or piano lessons might be more suitable to start with.

How long does it typically take to learn to play the guitar?

It's hard to pinpoint exactly how long it will take to learn the guitar as it depends on several factors. However, the more you practice, the faster you'll learn new techniques.
