From my interview with Mike DeAngelis, the following are some of the things I have learned about guitar and bass guitar lessons:
- The age that kids can start learning guitar is typically 8, but there are exceptions. DeAngelis Studio has had some kids as young as 6 with advanced potential. The keys are "finger strength", "attention span" and a willingness to "practice".
- A very common misconception - is that you have to start on an acoustic guitar; it is actually easier to learn on electric first. Necks are smaller on electric and you don’t have to press down the strings as hard.
- Another common misconception:
- Be an individual, don't become a clone of your teacher. A good teacher will help you develop your own style and musical interests.
-Make sure your teacher gives you good "core knowledge". You need to learn your basic chords, key signatures, notes on the fret board, and scales.
- DeAngelis Studio's Rock School Band program requires that students have a good "core knowledge" to be accepted into the Rock School program. Mike DeAngelis runs his Rock School very professionally. The program is conducted on a large stage with great equipment and you learn many of the same skills as professional adult bands.
Bass players are extremely sought after. If you want to be in a band you should think about playing the bass guitar. Bass players are the "foundation"
“We love seeing the changes in our students as they start to master their instruments”
