Beginner Guitar Lessons

  • Are you a beginning guitarist that wants quick results?
  • Are you new to playing the guitar and confused about where to start?
  • Are you sick of trying to teach yourself and getting no where?
  • Have you been playing guitar for a while but STILL feel like a beginner?

“I had been wanting to learn guitar for the longest time and I am so glad I found Preston to teach me! I bought my first guitar about 10 years ago in hopes of teaching myself, but my lack of motivation and frustration didn’t land me anywhere. I had looked into private lessons throughout the years but it wasn’t until recently that I was determined to commit. I stumbled upon “SLC Guitar” while searching for a private instructor; it was full of lots of information that led me to my first consultation.


To be honest, I was nervous at the first meeting and thought to myself, “Am I too old to get started with this? Am I going to succeed?” But Preston was extremely nice and made me feel at ease.

I feel I have made so much progress from when I started. He recognizes strengths and weaknesses and creates a plan just for me. I had developed some bad habits from playing on my own, and he has been so patient in helping me overcome them. At times I can be hard on myself, but Preston makes me more confident in my abilities and I love that. I have had people ask about my lessons and I have only positive things to say about my experience and I would recommend anyone to such an awesome teacher! Just thinking about reaching my greatest potential excites me and I am confident Preston will get me there!”

As a beginner I know what you’re going through, I’ve been there too.

You feel helpless. Clueless. It’s like you can’t do anything and whatever you can do just doesn’t sound right. You don’t know what to practice or if you are even practicing correctly. Maybe you are even unsure if what you are practicing will even help you achieve your end goal. Your fingers don’t work like you want them to, holding a guitar pick feels weird – even holding the guitar itself feels awkward and you aren’t even sure if you are doing that right. Everything just seems so random and confusing. You feel overwhelmed and confused with all the information on the Internet and books, and it seems like everyone’s “advice” is contradictory.
Because of all this you might even have some self doubt and wonder if you can even learn how to play the guitar, or if you will even be very good…
