How long will it take me to play the guitar?

Thursday, June 7, 2018 by Nanda Nayar | Learning

This is a question that I am frequently asked by new and prospective students and my stock reply is "I don't know" 

Why? Because, I don't know your speed of learning, your musical abilities, your dedication to practicing, and your exposure to music in itself.

When I am pressed further, I tell them that it is because each student's ability to progress is different, I do private lessons.  Please remember that learning music is a lifelong endeavor and there is no human being who can claim he/she knows everything there is to know about music.

So, introspect a bit into all this, and ask yourself this question instead.  What do I have to do to be able to play the guitar to my satisfaction?
