Have You Ever Felt Like You Are Standing at a Crossroads in Your Guitar Playing Journey?
I have, on a number of occasions, and each time I had questions that I wanted answers or problems I needed to resolve.
The first time was when I was just starting out, trying to figure out if I should teach myself or get a teacher and what type of guitar is best to learn on. Then there was the frustration that I couldn't understand why the notes and chords I was playing didn't sound the same as the song I was trying to cover. The list goes on and not just for me.
Every student I have had the privilege of working with over the last 40 years has had questions that wanted answering. Some were beginners but some already played and just needed a solution to a particular challenge they were encountering at that time.
Like me, these students didn't just need somebody to teach them, they wanted coach, someone to spend time with them, to understand what they wanted to achieve, and help them work towards a resolution to get them closer to realising their dream.
If You Are Finding Yourself in this position and not sure how to proceed then I am more than happy to hook up for an Informal Friendly Chat
I would like you to share with me that burning question or what your aspirations are around playing guitar. Hopefully it will give you the kickstart to take the next step either on your own or with me if you feel I can help you in any way. It doesn't matter what you choose, the important thing is you can use the discussion to keep that passion alive, whatever road you want to take. So if you feel ready to take your first or next step on the guitar then don't hold back any longer. Click Below and prove to yourself that it is possible and you can do it!
Michael J Hutton - Why I Do What I Do
My Passion is centred around music and playing the guitar but in particular beginners or those struggling or stuck in a rut, For me it was playing through my first song but my message is that you only need ONE song highlighting all the core elements to show you the path to 1000’s of songs and believe you can achieve it. I believe and from my own experience that getting over that 1st hurdle in anything you are passionate about creates a self belief, drive and motivation to jump the other hurdles you are going to face.
And there will be other hurdles and I can testify to that so whatever level you are at and hurdle you are facing in your guitar playing journey then contact me for a chat. They say "A problem shared is a problem halved" and that certainly works for me and my students as some of them testify below.
Self-teaching and some styles of tutor based teaching can leave you feeling out on a limb. I have experienced both and none more so than when I was at school. The 'one-size-fits-all' approach that was dished out like a bad school dinner is the single biggest catalyst that spurred me on to 'Coach' rather than Teach.
I strive to support you every step of the way, so you never feel out on a limb and can always turn to someone for help,advice, feedback, support or just a friendly chat or share a thought, opinion or snippet of wisdom.
I get as bigger buzz out of seeing others realise their dreams as they do so I hope I get to work with you as I have with many students over the last 40 years and that we can all share in a more rewarding and fulfilling life.
When I asked my 6-Year old Grandson what he thought "I do what I do" he said:
"Grandad plays guitars so teaches people which helps take their minds off other things"
(This was asked and quoted at the peak of the Covid-19 epidemic during the lockdown of 2020)
For Me It Enhances My Enjoyment of Life - What Will It Do For You?
HEAR SOME OF MY STUDENTS TALK ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE LEARNING TO PLAY AT 'IMAGINE PLAYING GUITAR' and OTHER COACHING SERVICES
Ann - Private Ukulele Student 2020
I have never thought of myself as musical and never thought I would be able to play a musical instrument. How wrong I was!
I recently took up the challenge of learning to play the ukulele and started online lessons.
As I make progress, playing the ukulele brings me joy and great satisfaction. It is a great tonic- much needed in these challenging times. - Ann, Health Care Practitioner
Rob - Private Guitar Student 1980's
When I speak about my musical pursuits I still tell the story of auditioning for a band, not knowing any songs and handing you the burden of teaching me a sets worth of songs in a few months!
I often look back on where I came from and who the major influences were in my life and you are among them. - Rob, Followed his dream at the guitar institute in California where he still lives with his family and sharing his time between playing guitar and a very commendable job fighting the wildfires as a pilot.
Adrian - Private Guitar Student 2020
Adrian is a retired schoolteacher and is living his dream by finally realising a lifetime ambition to play guitar
Jenny - Training & Transactional Analysis Coach 2020
I have just attended a really informative webinar about using Zoom to deliver my Excel training sessions. Very timely, given the current situation. Mick explained things clearly and has given me several ideas to take forward. Thank you Mick!
