Look for Mr Chow Kian Kiong or Mr. Lionel Lim Tze Wei.

Very good classical guitarists and competition winners.
Typical rate is about $50 per hour for 1 private lesson.

Yamaha is famous for charging super high fees but their curriculum tends to be a bit too rigid but quite decent for pop music. If you only want to learn normal strumming, you can consider lessons at community centres or self teach (the Dummies for Guitar book is not bad).

If you want to learn lead or classical guitar, you should consider Yamaha unless you know some pros who teach.

Hey all, I'm thinking of learning to play the guitar? Anyone got lobang?

Is guitar hard to learn? Any tips?

I have been playing for a while. I took up formal classical lessons from a private tutor (1 to 1) for about 2 years back in the early 90s. All I can say is, your tutor can only give you an hour of lesson per week, the rest is all your own hard work. How fast you want to progress depends on how many hours you want to devote yourself to practising the instrument.

 

There is a difference between playing and practising. Playing is just playing your favourite tunes whereas for practising, you will have to practise various right and left hand techniques daily to build up your strength and agility, to allow you to handle more difficult pieces at a later stage. Absolutely no short cut. Just to share....
