The San Diego area has a rich and varied musical culture, as well as many venues for performing music of all genres. From small clubs to stadiums, opportunities abound for guitarists of all levels to show off their chops
Such chops don’t happen by accident. It can take a lot of time and effort to become proficient at guitar. Although you can self-train, it is not a very efficient or complete way of learning. It is best to get instruction one-on-one with a guitar instructor. It’s even better to have a teacher who also happens to be a working musician. He or she can help you to understand the business of music, and not just the theory. That can give you an edge over other players.
You should also look for an instructor who makes you look forward to your lessons. Your teacher should make you feel enthusiastic about practicing in between lessons so that you rise to the next level quickly.
There are quite a few instructors to choose from in the area. The choices can seem a bit overwhelming, but they don’t have to be. When considering sources for San Diego guitar lessons, Glenn Sutton is your logical choice.
