GUITAR LESSONS IN LONDON

SEE PRICES

While traditionally a guitar has 6 strings, there are other alternatives. However, learning on a 6-string guitar at the beginning is best. There are both electric and acoustic guitars. An electric guitar requires a speaker, known as an amplifier, to produce sound. Acoustic guitars create sound naturally, without the need of a speaker (or any other equipment).

In addition, there are different sizes (thickness) of strings you can use on any guitar. Strings are made from different materials such as steel or nylon. As a result, the softness of nylon strings makes the guitar perfect for young children who want to learn to play a stringed instrument.

You can learn to play guitar using your fingers (known as fingerpicking) or using a tool called a plectrum (or pic). There are many types of picking techniques such as Hybrid or Alternate, and likewise, there are also different patterns you can learn for fingerpicking.

Our guitar tutors are accomplished in these methods and can teach you to play guitar using any or all of them.

Fingerpicking is primarily used in folk or classical music, while a plectrum – considered the most popular way of playing guitar – is more associated with rock, blues, and other contemporary styles. However, both methods can cross over into other genres too.

You play guitar using both hands – one hand for pressing on the strings (known as the ‘fretboard hand’) and the other for plucking the strings, which is known as the ‘strumming hand’.

Strumming is a key component for any guitar player and one of the first things you will learn. At the beginning, strumming is best done using a plectrum. We don’t cut corners at London Music Factory®, unless you want us to, but we recommend that beginners learn to use a plectrum before learning fingerpicking. At the beginning, there are enough hurdles to get over on your fretboard hand without creating extra hurdles for your strumming hand also. However, we do understand if you would like to dive straight into fingerpicking. In conclusion, our tutors will happily tailor the lessons to suit your short or long-term goals.

These are private guitar lessons in london, at a location provided by the student or the tutor.

Fun Facts:

The guitar can also be referred to as a chordophone. Chordophone was the name given to any instrument that makes sound by vibrating strings, stretched between two points.

The oldest record of a guitar dates back over 3,300 years ago.

The smallest guitar in the world is ten micro-metres long with strings fifty nano-metres wide.

    "This is a recommendation for JP McIvor of London Music Factory, who has been giving our daughter guitar lessons for the past three years. From a standing start Georgia, who is 15, is now a very capable guitarist, and will be taking her Grade 3 exam shortly. Georgia has learnt fast under JP’s tuition and has enjoyed each lesson; JP has enabled her to understand theory, sight reading, technique, and musicianship. We cannot believe her progression in such a short time – JP spends 45 minutes each week and has passed on his love of the instrument to make learning a pleasure. I recommend him more highly as an emphatic teacher and highly capable musician”.
