How Long Does it Take to Learn Guitar?

Welcome to Amazing Mobile Music Instruction. You’ve finally decided to take guitar lessons. The real question is how long is it going to take to learn? Music instructors always have a hard time giving a good answer. It’s isn’t a terrible question, it’s just a little difficult to answer. To answer the question, we need to know what “learning guitar” really means to you.

Learning to Play Guitar

Some people may want to learn how to simply play a favorite song, or learn certain chord progressions, or play mind-blowing solos. To be good at anything, if it’s playing guitar, learning the yo-yo or something else, takes a lot of practice.

No matter what your guitar playing goals are, it is going to take no less than a few months or perhaps over a year of steady practicing prior to you positively say you “know how to play guitar.”

For people that want to learn how to play just a few chords and transition between them easily, it’s going to take a minimum of three or four months of steady practice, possibly more depending on how persistent you are.

 Three Things you Need to Know. Practice, Practice, Practice!

“How long should I practice?” This is a reasonably typical question. Everyone has things to do and also has a life beyond playing guitar, so it can be hard to make time to practice. Try not to practice more tchan an hour in a day. An hour is a bit of time already, and when you are practicing for more than that, your hand might be a little tired, particularly if you are new to guitar. Stay to a steady 30 to 45 minutes of concentrated practice each day. And you don’t feel bad if you have to miss a practice day. Stuff does happen and going into the next time that you practice, be sure you’re dead set and focused on the task at hand.

Many new guitar players are excessively determined and devote too much time practicing. This eventually leads to them getting burned-out, plateauing or injuring their hand. You do not want this to happen to you.

 Set Small, Attainable Goals

Learning a new skill is all about breakthroughs. Realistically set your goals correctly with what you can actually accomplish in the amount of time you have. Imagine something you want to achieve on guitar and place a deadline for yourself for when you have conquered that technique or hit that goal.

For instance, perhaps you want to nail a whole song in a week. Well, if the song turns out to be a little too complex, maybe only learn the intro to the song in a week? If it’s too hard to accomplish, maybe scale it down some and only practice playing its chord progressions? Or if you’re not familiar with a chord in the song, maybe focus on playing the new chord that week alternatively?

It may be over your head if you head right into a complete song lesson and you notice yourself getting confused by the chords or scale being used. You’ll want to basically lay things out, so they are just a little easier for you. In doing this, the goals are easier to achieve, and it usually feels a lot better knowing that you are progressing quickly with small goals instead of waiting a long time to finish something entirely, that can be discouraging and kill your motivation.

A Word on Gear

Many guitar players that are new, are obsessed with gear. It isn’t the guitar that plays the guitar, it’s the player that plays the guitar!

Everyone likes bright, nitro-finished guitars with their custom guitar shop pickups, and Indian rosewood fretboards, ultimately, none of that matters if you can’t even play! That brings us to the point of this post: practice.

There is only one way to become a guitar player; practice. Hinging on what you wish to accomplish, it’s going to take at the minimum a couple of months, possibly more, prior to you having enough confidence in yourself to declare that you are indeed, a guitar player.

How Long Does it Take to Learn Bass Guitar?

How Long Does it Take to Learn Bass Guitar?

Honestly, there’s no conclusive answer to this question, it actually depends a lot on the individual. A new player, for example, might begin to get the gist of it within just 6 months; nevertheless, learning the ins and outs of bass guitar along with proficiency and skill of all the advanced methods might take many years, possibly a lifetime. Bass guitar is a lot more than a guitar with only 2 strings

Consequently, they have very different scale lengths, tones, and feel in addition to its role musically. Also, take into account that in many cases it also requires a rather different conceptual and technical methods. It’s possible that a guitarist will have an easier time moving to the bass since they have knowledge and are familiar with how the fretboard works. Having said that, if you’re thinking about moving to bass following guitar, it’s usually the one of the only things these instruments have in common, in addition to maybe using a pick.

Occasionally, just one lesson with a talented bass instructor might point you in the right direction and help you with your learning method. Do your homework and ask around or look up bass guitar instructors. Always remember that when push comes to shove, your ambition and willingness to learn bass guitar (and maybe your inherent musical ability) would be the major factors that affects your overall progression when you’re learning to play bass guitar.

Tips to Learn and Play Bass Guitar

Here are some common tips that you can use when learning to play the bass guitar. Apply these principles to the guitar, and you’ll hear and notice your playing improve significantly. Additionally, they will help you learn the bass faster.

Single-finger Method

Note that a lot of people in fact want to have a bass player that utilizes a pick as their playing method. Having said that, if you’re a fingerstyle bass player and are looking to accomplish a much more consistent playing method, try using only one finger, such as the index (instead of alternating between your index and middle finger) as much as possible.

Use Fifths and Octaves

The fifth and the octave are possibly the most harmoniously pleasant notes you could play. A lot of popular and classic bass guitar lines have been produced using primarily octaves, roots, and fifths as the main foundation.

One of the benefits about using this technique is that it will enable you to create a bass line that is both appealing and melodic. It also locks in nicely with the drums and not harmonically conflict with the basic chords.

Play for the Song

In a lot of cases, refined bass guitar playing requires you to show finesse and exercise control instead of showcasing your cunning skills and moves. Nine times out of ten, it’s a good idea to work primarily with the root notes of the chords while combining properly with the drummer’s bas drum in addition to the snare drums.

Instructional Books

Books are a great resource to learn bass guitar fundamentals, but to be honest, they’re unappreciated at this point. Online tutorials and YouTube have sort of eclipsed this useful way of learning bass.

It’s important to note that there’s a good chance some of your number one bass players learned by reading books.

Online Bass Tutorials

There are a lot of online bass guitar tutorials on various platforms. They may also be arranged very differently. However, they offer a suitable and affordable way to learn bass guitar. It is worth noting that YouTube is an awesome source, and typically the first place for most new players to go as it’s free!

You’ll be happy to know that there are many incredible channels dedicated to bass guitar tutorials and helpful reviews that explain methods and techniques very clearly.

There are popular lesson websites like Jamplay.com that offer structure while following a reasonable order, typically in a convenient course configuration. What this means is you shouldn’t end up in a bass lesson that’s too technical for you. Instead, get started with some beginner bass video tutorials and then progress from there.

How Much Do Music Lessons Cost
Written by Craig B

How Much Do Music Lessons Cost?

The average cost of music lessons is $55 per lesson, with prices ranging from $30 to $80+ per lesson in the US in 2020. Read on to learn more what you can expect in various price ranges as you improve your musical skills!

$30 To $50 Per Lesson

A very popular price to pay for music lessons and this price is usually the easiest to obtain if you book as part of a lesson package that you pay for at the outset of the lessons. Normally held in the home of the instructor or music studio and can offer you great value for money if you do not mind driving to the location of the lesson.

A couple of points to ponder: If the instructor is at a music store or studio with many teachers, the instructor may only be on a percentage of the monies taken. This may mean they are less motivated to teach as well as having less reason to attract new students. It may also be indicative the teacher is not a top-grade instructor. Also, if life gets in the way of your musical learning, you may have to pay up front for lessons you will not be able to take because of sickness, travel or a family emergency. Likewise, if you buy a package of lessons and then discover it does not jive with your learning style, the value offered in these packages becomes far less of an attractive proposition.

$50 to $80 Per Lesson

In this price range, you are looking at what may be considered regular prices for music lessons. They may be hosted at a studio or in the home of the instructor or in this price range, the instructor may come to you. Obviously, the last option is usually more expensive but you will not have to deal with traffic and the transport of musical instruments. Another advantage is you pay per lesson.

Since these rates are higher, many students save money by having lessons once every other week or month and this can be a good thing as it allows more time for practice. Although single lessons may cost more than package details, they offer greater flexibility as they are not subjected to contracts and can be canceled with ease.

$80 Plus Per Lesson

In this price range you are going to be working with a well-regarded private teacher or if you are going to a music school an elite class teacher.

These lessons will probably last a minimum of sixty minutes and may be done in a studio, the home of the teacher or the home of the student. They are also likely to specialize in individual specialist aspects of music. At this price point, teachers are going to have skills in very specific areas and a great knowledge to pass on to others.

These lessons are not perhaps the best for beginners but as you progress as a musician – this kind of teaching can be the best of all.

Other Ways To Learn

Group lessons are great when you are a beginner as you can learn from others and establish good foundations in music that will take you down the path of learning. You can expect to pay $15 to $35 per class.

Of course in the information age online options are also viable. They are normally cheaper than other music lessons and are good to get your feet wet although perhaps not best suited to the younger musician.

Learning Music As An Adult
Written by webtechs

Learning Music for Adults

Welcome back to Amazing Mobile Music Instruction.  Today we will discuss the motivation of learning an instrument as an adult. Whether it be picking an instrument back up after years of not playing, or beginning an instrument for the first time as an adult, the learning can be difficult but not impossible.

At Amazing Mobile Music Instruction we have students of all ages and all levels. Beginners, intermediate, and advanced players. When anyone starts or continues music lessons with us, we are happy to be a part of it.

Is it Too Late?

It is never too late to pick up an instrument. I think everyone can play music. I teach older beginners all the time. If you are interested, you can be good at anything you put your mind to. If you practice and enjoy doing it, there will be positive results. Setting realistic expectations can be helpful, of course. Learning 1 song at a time, getting to know the treble and bass clefs, learning music theory, rhythm and counting, fun improvisation, and simple notation can get you started with music. The physical mechanics of playing your chosen instrument are important to learn. You’ve already waited. Start now, it’s awesome.

Revisiting an Old Friend

There are many cases where students played an instrument at a younger age and decide later in life they want to pick the instrument back up. Taking lessons to refresh and sharpen your skills is a great idea. Doing this can help strengthen your memory and previous knowledge, help fix any bad habits you may have picked up along the way and teach you new good habits that will increase your skill level. You can go in a completely new direction like Sarah’s father did or start where you left off.

Starting Fresh

A lot of times we hear “I wish I had learned an instrument when I was young or I wished I would have stuck with my music lessons” Luckily, it is never too late to start. Though scheduling can be more difficult as we get older, we can typically find at least ten minutes in a day to work on a new skill.

As we age, some of the synapses in our brains, not being used, begin to die. Don’t panic, you can make new ones! This is why learning a new skill as an adult can be slightly more difficult. Not impossible. A great way to motivate this growth?… you guessed it, playing/studying music!

Advantages of starting later

When you begin learning music later in life, you may find that you get to a better understanding of it’s theory and structure more quickly than you thought possible. Since you are choosing to learn and play, it’ll automatically be less of a chore for you. You already know that working hard for something you want offers great rewards. You are aware that most excuses are just reasons to not try. If we never start, then we have already failed. That goes for any endeavor.

The Idea makes Me Anxious

Starting something new or taking on any challenge can create anxiety. Choosing to learn music can automatically create unnecessary anxiety in some. There are a great many personal reasons for this. Assuming issues will arise before you start can zap your motivation for trying. Do your best to look at it like it’s an outlet that reduces anxiety and promotes joy in your life.

Beginning or continuing to learn anything takes work. You can enjoy that work. You may have to learn that, as well. With practice comes progress, and in time you will see results. If you learn something today that you didn’t know yesterday, you are already successful. Allow yourself to enjoy the journey. It’s not as helpful to focus on the possible shortcomings you may or may not have. Judge your results after you start and do your best, not before.

Slow and Steady

With some consistent work and practice you can learn or relearn a musical instrument!

What’s the Best Age to Start Singing Lessons?

A lot of parents ask for voice lessons for their children as young as 3 or 4 years old, but traditional vocal lessons are not usually successful or suitable for children this young according to Musika Lessons Blog. It’s a good idea to start voice lessons once the child’s voice is more established and they have started the beginning stages of puberty.

Music Practice Tips & Strategies
Written by webtechs

7 Music Practice Tips & Strategies – AMMI

Welcome to Amazing Mobile Music Instruction! We work with you to enjoy and understand all the different aspects of playing music.

In this blog, we will explore some key elements of practicing a musical instrument. If you have any questions and would like to know more, please contact us at bensmethod@gmail.com. Please don’t forget to like us on Facebook and Instagram if you want to @amazingmobilemusic.

You know the old saying Practice makes perfect? We like to say, “perfect practice makes perfect sense”. Your method of playing/practice will define the results you’ll be getting.

  1. Think Outside the Box

Try thinking outside of the box. Saying notes out loud when you play can be very helpful. Singing them in time and in the correct melody can speed up the process incredibly. If your fingers won’t do what you want them to..say out loud.. “Pointer finger A, to ring finger C sharp to pinky D” it’s sounds funny, but it works very well.

  1. Practice Music Everyday

Practicing well everyday yields great results. It can be as little as ten minutes a day. If you do it every day, you’re going to improve quickly in comparison to sporadically playing. “when you have time”. Real life and its responsibilities are always going to be present.

  1. Create a Practice Schedule

If you have a good practice schedule, you’ll be playing more than you’re not playing. We can practice scales, saying and playing notes, new chords, chord changing, music reading, deepening your understanding of music theory and/or just going over a song or two.

  1. Practice & Review

Ideally, you want to practice what you have recently learned and then review your overall knowledge. It helps to find our motivation for playing in the first place. Think about things in those terms and get on your instrument today! That will keep your craft going consistently.

  1. Set Goals

If you really want to learn a tough or complicated song, practice the chords in it separately, in a variety of ways. Example; arpeggiate the chords and try to play them with different strumming techniques. Saying the notes out loud of the chords you’re playing may help you define the melody. If you want to work on composition, practice scales and chord progressions, within those scales. Whatever your motivation is, there is a goal to work towards.

  1. Take the Necessary Steps

Practice shouldn’t be a chore; it is a large part of the musical journey you are to embark on. Another step that will lead you further into the infinite world of music.

  1. Improve Your Technique

When you are playing, make sure you are constantly improving your technique. If you are not positioning correctly, or if you are not identifying the physical weaknesses you may have accidentally learned, your practice may take you backwards in the long run.

Conclusion

What’s the Best Age to Start Music Lessons?
Written by Amazing Mobile Music Instruction

What’s the Best Age to Start Music Lessons?

5 years old is the best age to begin lessons. When children reach this age, they are typically pretty good at sitting down and focusing with a music instructor in their home.

Children’s Music Lessons

We have all listened to the stories of musical prodigies, from Stevie Wonder signing with Motown at age eleven to Mozart writing his very first symphony at age eight. It doesn’t matter if your child isn’t playing music with the Chicago Symphony or the New York Philharmonic by age 10, your child is certainly exposed to gifted children in your neighborhood. Whether it’s an elementary school band concert or the church pre-school choir, it seems as though parents need to engross their children in music lessons from an early age if they want them to musically succeed.

Parents often hear other parents complain in a way that influences them to put off music lessons until their child is older, like “I was forced to play an instrument when I was younger, I didn’t it then and I don’t like it now.” To avoid this terrible attitude, parents decide to put off music lessons until their child can choose their own instrument or when they are older and can decide if they would even like to play an instrument.

There is a lot of studies that demonstrate a “window of opportunity” from when they are born to age nine for developing a musical appreciation among children. Throughout this time, the mental structures and mechanisms related with understanding and processing music are in the perfect stages of development, making it very important to introduce music to children in this age range.

Beginning Music Lessons

The important question isn’t when to begin lessons, but what’s the intention of music lessons for young children? For example, very young children aren’t exposed to instruments to master them, but to boost experience and learn to start a meaningful relationship with music when they are young. If this is your intent, then the “lessons” can and should start sooner than later and undeniably within your child’s first year.

These “lessons” don’t have to be – and shouldn’t be – formal. Parents can act as guides by engrossing their children in a musical atmosphere. You can help your child focus on music with movement activities such as musical games, dancing or swaying when holding the baby, or playing a musical instrument or singing for the child.

Music Lessons Around Age Three

When the child is around age three, it might be time for more formal type “lessons.” Once more, the goal isn’t to learn to play an instrument but to develop their skills like identifying melody, identifying a beat, or musical instrument identification. These parent-child lessons can be any number of preschool classes run by community centers universities, or private individuals. Deciding whether a music class is appropriate for your child, make sure your intentions and expectations match the instructors.

Music Lessons Around Age Five

By age five, a lot of children have established groundwork that has prepped them for formalized music lessons. Thus far, the goal of the lessons isn’t to perform great on the instrument but to enhance their comprehension of music. Violin and piano are commonly the two instruments played the most at this age, but some have tried the guitar, recorder, or ukulele with great success.

Music Lessons Around Age Ten

By the age of ten, the child will have a wide range of skills related to the instrument they have decided on. They also will have the physical ability to try different, bigger instruments, like a large string instruments or brass that needs an increased level of stamina and strength. At this time, the intentions of lessons suitably transition from gaining experience with music to enhancing their performance strength.

What’s the Best Age to Start Piano Lessons?

The best age to start piano lessons is usually between the ages of 6 and 9 years old according to School of Rock. Whereas older students might have an easier time learning to play. However, students as young as 6-years-old can also learn to play because the keys of the piano are easily operated.

What’s the Best Age to Start Violin Lessons?

What is the right age? Children as young as 3 years old can start leaning with a professional violin instructor, thanks to scaled-down instruments and the Suzuki method. Nevertheless, there’s more to think about than age and size. For other children, five and six are usually the best age according to Elite Music Academy.

What’s the Best Age to Start Guitar Lessons?

While each child is different, it’s usually a good idea to wait until your child is at least 6 years old before starting guitar lessons according to Guitar Gear Finder. While children younger than 6 can learn guitar, it takes a remarkable teacher to take on the difficulty to teach young children.

What’s the Best Age to Start Singing Lessons?

A lot of parents ask for voice lessons for their children as young as 3 or 4 years old, but traditional vocal lessons are not usually successful or suitable for children this young according to Musika Lessons Blog. It’s a good idea to start voice lessons once the child’s voice is more established and they have started the beginning stages of puberty.

Music Lessons in Conclusion

There are three answers to the question, “What age should children start music lessons?” Casual activities using music should begin soon after they are born, followed by more methodical classes about age three, and music lessons with the intention of learning the instrument should begin about age six and nine. Bear in mind these are only guidelines; there will be exceptions that will certainly happen based on the child and/or instructor. Gaining knowledge with music at an early age is very important in your child’s development. Like learning a language or riding a bike, music skill may be learned later in life, but won’t be “natural” in a way that’s so vital for flowing musical performance.

For example, a high school student or college student probably could teach you how to play bass guitar but their experience level for teaching would be a lot lower than someone who has been practicing/teaching bass guitar for years. What this means is that a less experienced instructor will usually cost less than an instructor that has years of bass guitar playing experience.

Length of the Lesson

Typically, the longer the lesson is, the more expensive the lesson is going to be. This reason is why we suggest shorter lessons for children and beginners. This also reduces the amount of attention needed for the student making it less stressful for beginning bass guitar players. For more advanced players a longer lesson would be appropriate because these students already have the basics down and don’t need to worry about their hands cramping up or having tender fingertips. Of course, it is completely up to the student how long they want the lesson length to be and what makes them the most comfortable for their individual learning.

Travel Time

The further the instructor must travel, the more expensive it will be because of fuel costs as well as the time it takes for the instructor to travel to your home or office.

Guitar Lesson Cost Factors

Several factors can influence the cost of a guitar lesson and because of this we have provided common factors with an explanation as to how they influence price.

Teacher Experience

The experience level of your teacher is a determining factor on the price. For example a college or high school student could probably teach you how to play guitar but their experience level for teaching woud be much lower than someone who has been teaching guitar for 20 years. This means a less experienced teacher is often less expensive than a teacher with years of experience.

Length of Lesson

Typically the longer the lesson is the more expensive it is which is why we recommend shorter lessons for beginners as well as for children. This also decreases the amount of attention required for the student making it less stressful for beginning guitar players. For more advanced players a longer lesson will be appropriate since these students already have the basics down and do not need to worry about things like hand cramps or tender finger tips. Of course it is completely up to the student how long they would like the lesson length to be and what makes them the most comfortable for their individual learning.

Travel Time

The further an instructor has to travel the more expenisve it is because of the cost for fuel as well as time it takes for the teacher to travel to your home or office.
