Learn to Play

Even if a bear stepped on your ear, and attempts to go to a music school ended at the first audition at the flute department, you should not give up the idea of ​​gathering a rock band with friends or buying a luxurious piano. To master the guitar or the synthesizer, it is not necessary to sit on the solfeggio and sing in the choir.

Choosing a teaching method

Forget horror stories about many hours of learning scales and beating hands with a ruler for incorrect hand placement on the instrument. Fortunately, there are much more humane ways to get involved in music. With a teacher - in a group or individually. Group training is usually cheaper, you can learn from other people's mistakes and be inspired by other people's results. For an individual approach, you will have to pay a larger amount, but at the same time, the training will be tailored to your specific goal. Some courses may provide you with an instrument for rent. With private lessons at home, you will have to purchase your own. Independently (according to tutorials and video tutorials). This method still requires at least a basic knowledge of musical notation, as well as more time. So, with a mentor, after three months of regular lessons for an hour three times a week, you will be able to play more than ten favorite melodies on the guitar. With the independent development of this instrument with the same regularity of classes, learning one melody can take more than a month. If you have no experience with a musical instrument, you should at least find a teacher for the first few lessons.
