Guitar FAQs
We teach both.
Yes, but we do not require it and we don't teach it to beginner students. When a student first starts taking lessons we feel it is more important to get familiar with the mechanics of the instrument, which can be a challenge in and of itself. We prefer our students start making music rather than worrying about whether the note is C or C#. In this case, we will use TAB which is very easy to understand.
Bring your guitar and any other materials you have been studying. You don’t need to bring an amp or cable - we have them here.
The short answer is yes; you will need to work on the assignments given by your instructor with your guitar. A student can do an introductory lesson without a guitar.
There is a myth that acoustic guitar is easier to play; this is absolutely not true. An electric guitar has smaller/thinner strings that are easier to get sound out of and the string height is almost always lower, enabling easier fretting. Outside of that we suggest you simply learn and acquire a guitar for the music that you want to play. For example, if you are playing heavy metal, an electric guitar would be appropriate and if you are playing folk music, an acoustic guitar would be appropriate.
Yes, ages six and over.
We don’t, but the good news is guitar starter packs are relatively inexpensive and tend to retain their value. If you find that you don’t stick with guitar, you should be able to get most of your money back by selling it.
We sell metronomes, tuners, strings, and other guitar accessories here at North Main Music. For guitar starter packs we recommend Guitar Center on DW Highway in Nashua. They have great stock and helpful salespeople.
We are often asked to recommend instruments for beginners. We are happy to now sell these instruments on our website.
