If you are an absolute beginner, what can you expect at your first lesson?

  • We’ll help you to tune your guitar and show you how to use a free tuning app. Tuning is tricky and can take a little practice, but we’ll walk you through it and make sure you’re comfortable with the process.
  • We’ll explain the different parts of the guitar and how to hold it when you play.
  • We’ll teach you how to hold the pick and how to strum properly.
  • We’ll get you started with learning a few chords. We’ll show you the correct way to play the chord, which involves technique with your wrist, palm, and fingertips.
  • We’ll talk about practicing, and maximizing your practice time with the most efficient practice strategies.

When you leave your first lesson, you’ve reviewed the above and you can practice the chords that you’ve been shown. Once you learn a few chords, you can begin working on some real songs, and we have plenty of ‘beginner’ songs that we can give you! Most adults are working on songs within just a couple weeks of beginning their lessons! For adult beginners, we recommend THIS book.

The Easiest Way to Learn Barre Chords

What’s the easiest way to learn barre chords? Barre chords can be challenging for beginner and even intermediate guitarists. Most players who are struggling with barre chords think that they don’t have the strength to play them cleanly, but many times, it’s simply due to bad technique.
This video will demonstrate to you what we think is the easiest way to learn barre chords, and get started in general with bar chords. This is the method that I like to teach my students.
Basically, you’ll start with an ‘Em’ chord, but fingered with fingers 3 and 4 (rather than the usual 1 & 2, or 2 & 3). Just remember to leave your first two fingers open, as you’ll be using them for the barre chord. In the video you’ll notice that when I’m playing the ‘Em’ chord my thumb is at the top of the neck just like any other open chord. Barre chords are different; with bar chords your wrist is bent, and your thumb is squeezing the back of the neck. Watch the video:
So you’ll see in the video that there’s two positions for your chord hand:
  • Open chord which has your thumb hanging over the top of the neck (and the palm of the hand is flush on the back of the neck)
  • Barre chord which has your thumb is in the middle squeezing and your wrist is bent.
The Easiest Way to Learn Barre Chords

With open chords the thumb hangs over the top of the neck

Now, we’ll take the ‘Em’ chord that we’re playing and slide up to the fifth position (which means your first finger will be used to barre the fifth fret). Watch the video to see how the fingering hand position shifts from ‘open chord’ (thumb on top) to ‘barre chord’ (thumb in the middle of the neck and wrist bent) as you are making this move.
You want to practice this to the point that both the open and barre chords ring ‘clean’ (i.e. with no muted strings). This will take some practice but with a little work it’s definitely doable. If you’re having trouble getting the barre chord clean, try using your middle finger and hold it over your first finger (which is doing the barre) to give it more strength (see the video).

While barre chords can certainly be challenging, we think this method may be the easiest way to learn barre chords out of the gate.

With barre chords, the thumb is in the middle of the neck pinching with the first finger in front

Microphone Polar Patterns

Microphones can have different pick up (or ‘sensitivity’) patterns based on the mechanical setup of the microphone (also called ‘microphone polar patterns’). The most popular patterns are cardioid, which is mostly front addressing, hypercardioid (or supercardioid), which is a bit narrower than cardioid with a little sensitivity towards the rear of the microphone, figure eight, which records equally on each side, and omni, which has is equally sensitive in any direction. 

Example of popular microphone polar patterns:

Microphone Polar Patterns

For most applications, a standard cardioid polar pattern is desired, as it will accurately record the sound source when front addressed, and as

AKG C4000B is a versatile microphone

such minimize the room’s effect, and other ambient sounds. Most vocal and general purpose microphones are cardioid for this reason. The other pattern types are generally desired for a specific recording application; for example, an omni pattern is great as a center microphone when recording an orchestra, capturing a nice image of the musical performance as well as the ambiance of the hall. A figure 8 may be used between two closely spaced acoustic guitarists.

Some of the more expensive microphones have built in switches that allow you to select the polar pattern. I find that 99% of the time my microphones with selectable patterns are set to cardioid, unless I have a unique recording application, but when that occurs I will admit that the selectable pattern feature comes in handy! For example, three vocalists huddled around one microphone can definitely benefit from a wider cardioid setting rather than a narrow one. The AKG C 4000B dual-diaphragm condenser transducer with has selectable cardioid, omnidirectional, and hypercardioid microphone polar patterns, is a versatile microphone that, based on it’s selectable patterns, can be used for many applications (another great option is the AKG C414, with 5 selectable patterns!).

How Has the Pandemic Affected Your Business? 

How Has the Pandemic Affected Your Business

Covid-19 has had a serious negative impact on many businesses

How has the pandemic affected your business?  Without question, the pandemic has affected all businesses in some way. While many businesses have suffered tremendously, there are a few that, by exploiting changes forced on them by the pandemic, have benefited. At NHTunes we’re in the business of music lessons. While there have been many pandemic-related challenges presented this past year, we’ve been able to utilize the changes necessary to continue operating throughout the pandemic to better position our business post pandemic (think “making lemonade out of lemons”).

The pandemic forced us to close our physical studio space in the spring. We were able to retain about 70% of our students by moving to online lessons (our instructors did a tremendous job of getting up to speed with Zoom and tackling the adjustments needed for online teaching). We reopened our space mid summer, and while many students came back to in-studio lessons, about 40% remained (and still remain) online.
Our instructors have become quite adept at online teaching, making the experience as productive and comfortable as in-studio lessons. This allows us to pursue new business opportunities.
In addition to conducting business during the pandemic, moving forward the online option for lessons allows us to:
  • Widen our geographic reach
    •  With a good website and functional SEO, we’ve put a focus on advertising outside of our normal service area. We currently have music students as far away as Chicago. This is a tremendous opportunity for our business to acquire new students! Many folks have gotten comfortable with online learning, and it’s apparent this option is here to stay post-pandemic.
  • Operate on snow days
    • In the past, when we closed for a snow day we would need to schedule make-up lessons. This was extremely disruptive for both the students and the studio, and often resulted in financial loss. Now, we simply use our online option to continue ‘business as usual’ when our physical location is closed.
  • Better service our customers
    • There are many times where, for a variety of reasons, it’s more convenient for customers who are normally in-studio to have their lesson at home.We’re happy to be able to ease their burden and provide them with this service. Being able to quickly react to the needs of our customers has become an valuable strategic advantage for NHTunes.

While the pandemic has challenged our business like it has many others, it hasn’t been all bad. When we’re asked, “how has the pandemic affected your business?”, we can say that, with work and diligence, it’s short term negative effect was turned into a long term positive impact on our business.

Why Is Piano a Great Instrument for Kids to Learn?

Why Is Piano a Great Instrument for Kids to Learn?Why is piano a great instrument for kids to learn? There are many reasons that piano is a GREAT first instrument for students as young as 3 or 4 years old. Learning at such a young age offers many advantages, and the piano is the perfect instrument for younger students. Why is piano a great instrument for kids to learn? Here are some of the many reasons:
  • Instant Gratification: unlike many other instruments, it’s easy to get the piano to make a ‘pleasing’ sound…. just press a key! Simple, well-known melodies are quickly within a new student’s reach providing encouragement. While younger student’s hands may be too small to sound out full chords, there is still a LOT that a younger student can learn, and this knowledge will do them well as they age and progress with their lessons.
  • Music Theory: The piano is a great instrument to learn music theory and develop a solid music foundation. It’s visual layout makes sense, and makes learning chords, intervals, scales, and other music theory elements relatively easy.
  • Reading Music/Coordination: The piano is great for learning to read, starting with the right hand and the treble staff, then introducing the left hand and the bass staff. Using both hands requires coordination, and the piano is great for this as the mechanics of playing itself is not an obstacle.
  • Tuning Not Required: Unlike other instruments like guitar or ukulele, the student doesn’t need to tune a piano before each use. Tuning a guitar can be a huge obstacle for a younger student, and even for their parents. Once an acoustic piano is tuned, it generally holds its tuning for months, providing a distinct advantage over other instruments.
  • Piano Skills Translate to Keyboards & Electronic Music:  Much of today’s music is being generated electronically. For folks creating electronic music, those that know how to play a piano have a distinct advantage over those who don’t, as most electronic music is generated via MIDI which is played from a keyboard. Understanding music theory is also an important skill that’s translated to electronic music production. Basically, trained musicians make better electronic music.
The piano is GREAT for younger learners, and we often incorporate casual voice training in our younger student’s piano lessons (all of our piano instructors also teach voice). Casual voice at such a young age makes students feel that singing is a natural part of lessons and their musicianship, which really helps them when they are old enough for serious voice lessons.
We are pleased to provide piano lessons both online and in our Manchester NH studio. You can book a single lesson below to see if our studio is right for you (we think it will be!). There is NO registration or other fees! If you have more questions, you can contact us HERE.
