Dear Aspiring Guitarist

Do you wish you could play guitar?

Do you want to learn how to play guitar but are unsure how to get started?

Maybe you have played for a while already and are frustrated with your lack of progress?

Do you feel like you just need a nudge in the right direction?

Don't worry! You are not alone

For a long time I struggled with all the typical difficulties associated with the trial and error approach. Eventually, I realised that I needed to take guitar lessons from a great teacher to help me develop my own style and play the way I wanted to play.

Most guitarists struggle to improve or, sadly, quit altogether, because they fail to get the help they know they need.

Maybe it gives them some weird sense of satisfaction to think of themselves as self taught even though they know they’ll never reach their goals and dreams that way. Perhaps they don’t have any goals or dreams.

Are You Ready?

Maybe they have some dreams, but aren’t committed enough to invest the time and energy to work toward the goals that will transform their dreams into reality.

The fact that you are reading this tells me that you are not one of those people. You’re ready for a change.

You know that in order to get the results you really want, you need to optimise your efforts by making the most of your precious time and energy.

You know that you could struggle along, picking up what you can from books and magazines, friends and the internet, or you could choose to get results many times faster by taking guitar lessons in Brisbane from a passionate teacher who can help you reach YOUR goals much more quickly and easily than you could on your own.

You’ve probably been finding excuses to put this off for far too long already. If you are serious about getting the most out of your guitar lessons and experiencing an awesome musical adventure, then stop wishing and do something about it.

The Problem

Why You Might Struggle to Improve on Guitar

Life can be a whirlwind, and as an adult, you’ve got your hands full with responsibilities, work, and family. That’s why, at times, it’s challenging to give your guitar the attention it deserves. Your passion for the instrument is undeniable, but finding time for practice feels like hunting for treasure in a busy day.

You’re not alone. Many adults like you, with a deep love for music, find themselves in a similar situation. You might practice regularly, yet the progress seems slower than expected. It’s not about how hard you work, but rather about working smarter, finding the right techniques and strategies to unlock your potential.

Then there are those moments when self-doubt creeps in, whispering that you can’t truly master the guitar. It’s normal to have fears and doubts, but they shouldn’t stand in your way. You deserve to play the music you love with confidence.

Maybe you opted for a cheaper guitar initially, thinking it was a wise choice. However, as time goes by, it constantly goes out of tune, making practice more frustrating than enjoyable. Sometimes, cheaper options end up costing more in the long run.

And finally, there’s the misconception that talent alone leads to success in playing the guitar. In reality, mindset is everything. Your belief in your ability to improve and your dedication to practice matter more than you might think.

This story is about you and the challenges you face on your guitar journey. But here’s the good news – at the Australian Guitar Academy, we’re here to support you every step of the way. Our programs are designed with adults like you in mind, providing the guidance, structure, and encouragement you need to conquer these obstacles and achieve your musical dreams.

Why Do Guitarists Struggle To Improve?

1. Unclear priorities

Do you want to learn guitar more than other things which may distract you along the way?


2. Disorganised approaches

If you want better results then you need to work smarter, not necessarily harder.


 3. Standing in your own way

It is easy to let unconscious fears and doubts inhibit your progress through irrational choices.


4. Not understanding the difference between price, cost and value

“Cheaper” options often cost you more in the long run.


5. Not understanding the psychological factors involved in success

Mindset is EVERYTHING!
