At MayosMusic we offer Private, Semi-Private and Group guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo, fretted instrument and auto-harp lessons. Plus, we are a complete luthier service that includes guitar and amplifier repairs/restorations. Through the years we have been asked numerous "Guitar Lesson" and "Guitar Repair" related questions (many repeatedly) by new/current/old and prospective students and customers. Here is our answer to: What will I (the student) need to get started with guitar/bass lessons?
First and foremost, the student will need a desire to learn to play the guitar, and the dedication to practice. The guitar must be tunable and playable (we can help with purchase advice, repairs, setups and adjustments). With most styles of music you can begin lessons with almost any type of guitar (acoustic, steel or nylon, electric, arch-top/f-hole, etc.). However, as the student progresses, it will be best to practice with the type of guitar that best suits the style of music studied, and which will be played in performances.
