1. Students learn just as much from each other as they do from the instructor. While interacting with each other, students will actually learn more in a group environment than in a private lesson. Everyone processes information differently and will have different questions about the material being presented. Students may hear a question that they never would have thought to ask and in turn helps them to make faster progress. This provides a valuable support network for all students involved in the class.
2. Students are more likely to practice on a regular basis. Students in group guitar lessons will often hold each other accountable for practicing without even realizing it. By watching each other progress, students become more motivated to practice simply because they want to keep up with the rest of the class.
3. Students quickly get over their fear of playing in front of other people. If students are taught in a group lesson from the very beginning, they will not have the chance to develop a fear of performing in front of others. This is the best way to build their confidence at an early stage and provide them with support from their peers. By playing in front of each other, students quickly learn that they are not the only one struggling with the challenges of learning to play the guitar and it reduces stress for each student.
