Many musicians are self-taught. Some people seem to have an innate ability to hear a song once and then plunk it out on piano or guitar. Learning to play an instrument this way can be fun, but most people that learn without formal lessons teach themselves bad habits and inferior technique. Maybe you are someone who learned to play guitar by looking at chord books. Perhaps you’re even a professional player than never had a lesson. We commend your efforts, while inviting you to take one or more guitar lessons in Chantilly, Virginia.
Even if you know how to play, a few guitar lessons in Chantilly are sure to improve your musical chops. If you never learned to sight read sheet music, learning to do so may lead to better gigs.
