Buy one and use it. Learn how to tune yourself at some point; the most important thing to learn is to hear small differences in pitch between strings. That can be hard for beginners, so tuners are a godsend. I didn't have them while learning 30 years ago and I'm sure my guitar was not perfectly in tune for probably the first 5 years. Not to the standard I apply today. It didn't make a lot of difference then because I couldn't hear when it was slightly out of tune anyway. Now I can.
Try 1/2 hour and if you think you need more then increase it. It's not the lesson time so much as the practice time you put in on what your teacher has been showing you that helps you improve.
I thought as much - just wondering if he could show me as much - it might be a case of turning up and it being time to finish already!
What do you think they would teach u in the first half hour? will they get you playing or will they go over theory (tuning and stuff)
2. If 21 pounds is a lot of money for you, take a one-hour lesson to start so you get a good feel for whether this is the right teacher for you, then take half-hour lessons. It's true that the work you do at home is where you will make the most progress, not in the lesson itself.
3. If your time is valuable the money will be well spent because you will learn much faster with a teacher than on your own.
