Novice players waste time and effort learn the wrong skills. They often ignore the fundamentals of technique and dive into material beyond their ability. Many beginners try to imitate what they see on stage without realizing that there is a proper way to align the body parts for efficiency. This is especially important as beginner players will have weak muscles lacking in flexibility. Time should be managed where the demand is the greatest. Levels For Guitar is about efficiency and effectiveness of learning.
What Levels For Guitar offers is comprehensive guitar and music instruction. This means we start with the basics and build on the fundamentals, developing skill, and learning music theory.
