Guitar lesson

Postby fxchow » Fri Sep 25, 2009 7:58 am

Hi,

My dd1 wants to learn playing guitar after her PSLE.
So I would like to know if anyone can share where can I buy a guitar at the minimum budget.
BTW, any recommended school around Jurong Area?

TIA :lol:

12 yo can get a full size guitar
u can consider Yamaha c series ..that cost around 100 to 200 dollars
their frets action are good and the sounds are reasonable

at jurong area i think there is Christopheric
and Yamaha at frontier CC

playing guitar is not easy and a very long term investment
good luck

Do you want to invest in a good one or simply get one for her to learn first & if progress is good, get her a good one?

I got a second hand one for $15 at a garage sale few months back. It was a little on the old side but the owner gave us new sets of strings to change. Works fine :)

You can consider asking around to borrow or get a 2nd hand one first if you unsure if her interest/passion will stay.

Hi Mrswongtuition,

I've called Summer Notes at Jurong West, they told that they will provide the guitar for the lesson first. :D

most school provides guitar when u go for lesson
but the point is the practice u need when at home
try to start off as classical guitar and decide later on what kind of guitar to go on later

So I served the web and got an identical one from the States at around S$1,100 (they don't mail over. I got a friend to buy it there and bring it back for me). That was her birthday present.



Hi insider,

Wow you are so good to your daughter. :D
Your girl must be very touched.
