Make the Most of Your Metronome

By Lila Karash

Playing guitar with a metronome can be disorienting at first. It can seem like more of a distraction than an aid. When you are new to it, you might be listening only to yourself and focusing only on what your hands are doing.

How Long Until I Learn to Play Guitar?

By Lila Karash

How long will it take to learn to play guitar? This is a question that I often get from beginner students, but it can apply to any level of playing (I've been playing guitar for a long time but I still haven't mastered it).

Time to Humidify Your Guitar

By Jeb Silburn

Colder weather often brings drier weather. Every year we fill up the humidifiers and keep lip balm in our pockets, but do we pay attention to our guitars? Dry conditions may spell ruin for an acoustic guitar. Enter the humidifier.

Performance Nerves are Normal

By Lila Karash

Here's a thing that I hear about a lot: A student practices a song and plays it perfectly when they're at home and nobody else is listening. But as soon as they play it in front of the teacher or someone else, they choke and mess it all up. If this happens to you, it's perfectly normal!
