5 Reasons Why Beginner Guitar Lessons Salt Lake City
Is EXACTLY What You're Looking For

1. You're brand new to the guitar and have no idea where to start

2. You want to skip the long and difficult “trial and error” approach and learn in the most fun and effective way possible

3. You've tried learning with a book or on YouTube and feel lost, overwhelmed and confused

4. It's taking FOREVER to learn your basic chords

5. You want to learn to play the guitar avoid any and all bad habits

Learning how to play the guitar is fun and exciting but it can also be really frustrating too. I know because I've been there... When I began playing the guitar, I just wanted to have some fun, play my favorite songs and maybe impress some girls, but to be honest; it was pretty difficult for me. I was totally clueless: the only aspiring musician in my family, and my own friends told me to quit because my fingers wouldn't work! So I'd practice even more (out of spite), buy books, look up stuff online, took guitar lessons, but my "teachers" either taught me super boring stuff like "Kumbaya" or were totally disorganized. In the end, I wasted YEARS trying to get anywhere.

Finally, after many guitar teachers, I found a truly great guitar teacher who made me realize that learning that guitar didn’t have to take so long and be so frustrating! ?I discovered that the quickest, most enjoyable and most effective way to learn how to play the guitar is with the right guitar teacher who understands the process of learning the guitar and how to break it down so even an ordinary person can understand it and succeed.

From my experience both in learning how to play the guitar myself, being trained on how to teach it, and most importantly, having proven methods for helping others learn how to play the guitar, I am confident that I can help you with your guitar playing as well.

I would recommend anyone to take guitar lesson from Preston. Especially if you are like me and had no idea what you wanted to learn and you were kind of lost. He knows what he’s doing and he’ll put you on the right path.

This sounds great but...

  • I'm older and I've always heard you have to learn when you're young... Sometimes I hear this but as a professional who's helped many adults in their 50s and 60s learn to play the guitar this is not correct. Anyone can do it if they have the desire and put in the work. EVEN YOU!
  • I have ZERO natural talent and I don't want to look dumb or waste my time if I can't do it. I didn't have any natural talent either when I began either. In fact, one of my child hood friends told me to quit because I so bad... The real question is: how bad do you want to learn how to play the guitar? Are you willing to do your part and practice and make it a part of your daily schedule? Are you teachable and willing to follow instructions? If yes, then I am 100% confident I can help you learn the guitar - and you'll be awesome at it!

Just imagine how fun it's going to be, strumming around the campfire, sitting on the back porch and jamming out, playing your favorite songs, jamming with your friends, writing your own cool music that you could be proud of, playing for your kids and/or serenading your sweetheart…

I noticed an improvement right from the start. Preston really took the time to understand where I was at and what my goals were and he helped me to plot out a road map of how to go through and achieve those goals. From the first lesson he gave me an assignment and 2 weeks later he recorded me and I could play it without the sheet music, so right from the start I could see the improvements. I can now play 7 songs and 13 chords!
