At the London Music Academy you can take advantage of world-class guitar teachers to help you start learning to play the guitar today. We can teach you all the way from the absolute basics of how to hold a guitar all the way to becoming performance ready. No matter what your musical goals are, we work alongside you to help you achieve them in a fun, safe and stimulating environment.
Our Proven Methods Teach You Fast
After years of experience teaching and facilitating beginner guitar lessons, we’ve created a comprehensive method to get you playing your favorite songs as fast as possible. In our beginner classes, we always start with the absolute basics to ensure you understand how to hold the guitar to prevent any wrist or shoulder injuries. We teach these fundamentals in the simplest way possible by showing you exactly how to hold your left and right hand based on your build and guitar size.
Next, we begin teaching you basic chord shapes to start developing your muscle memory. Our world-class teachers show you the most efficient ways to transition between each chord. We always keep a focus on not putting too much pressure on the strings to prevent any pain in your fingertips. In this stage of the lessons we’ll also start to teach you basic rhythm and strumming patterns so you can put the chord shapes to use. Once you start to get the hang of this, you’ll be on your way to playing your favorite songs for friends and family.
Once you start to get the feel for the different chords and transitioning between them, we’ll start teaching you how to learn songs. We try to teach our students based on what will help them most in the long run, so we focus on ear training and learning songs by ear. This allows you to immediately start playing any song you want without having to rely on guitar tabs or chord sheets. Of course, we also teach you how to read guitar tabs and chord sheets, so you can still learn those particularly tricky songs.
Throughout all of these lessons, we also help our students figure out practicing habits that work for them. Most beginner guitar players only have a limited amount of time to practice on their own, so we focus on teaching you the most effective practice techniques when you have a limited amount of time. This helps you continue learning the guitar well after you’ve completed your lessons with us.
