Take private lessons with a guitarist on Superprof

Picking up a new instrument can be a thrilling way to spend your free time, especially if you have some form of connection with it. 

For many of us, the guitar represents something more than just a wooden shell with six strings. It’s a call to action to our inner rock star, an invitation to serenade that special someone or a way to soothe the soul through the deliberate practice of a skill.

Yet at the same time, it doesn’t have to be anything more than a fun pastime. An enjoyable way to spend your afternoons that doesn’t involve technology. Playing the guitar ranks among the activities that provide the most benefits without requiring you to stare endlessly at a screen.

You never know, one day you might even pluck up the courage to invite your friends over for an impromptu jam and impress them with your guitar-playing skills.

Though that shouldn’t be the main reason you decide to pick up the guitar.


Because drawing your motivation from external sources is a recipe for disaster, as it will soon burn out and all you’re left with is the husk of a dream that you can’t fulfil.

This might sound like an exaggeration, but going into learning a new instrument with lofty expectations and superficial hopes isn’t going to get you very far.

It’s far better to draw the bulk of your motivation from within, finding compelling reasons to show up every day and practise the instrument. For example, you can connect to the process of playing the individual strings, rather than focussing on what songs you really want to play. The more you focus on something that’s out of your reach, the harder it will be to convince yourself that the learning process - what is happening right now - is worth it.

What to expect working with a tutor

Most guitarists started out by working closely with a tutor.

This isn’t a wild claim to make, and we’d even go a step further and say that every idol you have, everyone you look up to, had a mentor or teacher that guided them along in their journey to mastery.

It’s perfectly possible to make progress through self-teaching, yes, but it’s an awful lot harder to take this route.

When you decide to go it alone and forgo the tutor, what you’re effectively saying is that you will hold yourself accountable and show up every day, you won’t have wavered when the going gets tough, and you’ll address your blind spots accordingly when they show up.

If you think you can do all of this yourself, then by all means go it alone.

However, if you’re interested in making good headway with the guitar in a short period of time, and would prefer to have someone to ask questions when things are challenging, then your best bet is to work with a tutor.

With a tutor, there isn’t any obstacle you can’t overcome with patience and persistence. Their personalized feedback will help you develop the right skills quickly, and they will hold you accountable for putting in the effort consistently.

The main challenges of learning guitar

By far the biggest challenge associated with learning the guitar is sticking with it.

If you can stick with the instrument for more than just a few months, you’ll have the edge over most people who decide they want to pick up the guitar.


Because we’re willing to hazard a guess and say that most people who pick up the guitar drop it not long after.

It’s tough to stay motivated with an instrument, so if you can hang in there, especially in the challenging times, then you’ll put yourself in great stead.
