Guitar lessons in Malaysia

Wait ….i think every town has its own music school lah ..
Ok , let me get this straight . There is no such thing as “this music school” or “that music center” has the best guitar teachers around ..

Because every teacher is AN individual , NOT A COMPANY , every teacher has his own style and he IS unique . A great teacher may work in Guitar Collection today , after ONE year he might switch to Guitar Store..

Plus , A great guitarist is not always a great teacher .

The easiest way to find out is  , the learning atmosphere . Go to a place where GREAT guitarist hangs out . Go for a teacher that BRINGS his student together .You know why?

You will learn MUCH MORE with this formula

A group of learning guitarist + a great teacher to guide you .

Compared with , 1 on 1 , two way communication , traditional teacher-student method .

Also , a simpler way to find out where is good for you is ..how much the teacher inspires you ? if he inspires you alot , you might want to stick with him for a long time .

phewwww…that was a quick list that came through my mind .

Yeah , feel free to drop me an email or a comment , whoever that is worth mentioning (or did i miss any?) , or if you want YOUR SHOP to be in the list ..

The others that i mentioned . Nice free advertising link for you eh?  You owe me a meal :P

  5. ariffdude · March 4, 2010

    eh i don’t think lelong is a good place to look for guitars. It’s crowded with you know who’s ad.

  6. gapnap · March 4, 2010

    @vincent. wtf ? katak bawah tempurung bro ! ..haha . Dude , don’t mind me teasing you , at least i didn’t go ..”oh i also didn’t been to any guitar shops in PJ” ..being humble ok.

    @ariff . Its still F up , but its getting better . Wan Choon Store died already . I do not see him around anymore..

    Anyway , no matter how screwy up lelong is , they are still the safest in Malaysia , because of safetrade . Many of my first timer customers(those form other states who are paranoid) used that service for their first purchase from us . After that , they stop using it of course :)

    Hi there,
    I’m going to be stopping over in K.L. for a couple of nights in July this year. I am staying in the Bukit Bintang area, very close to Low Yat Plaza.

    I want to shop for some guitar effects pedals, like Digitech RP1000, Boss G-10, ME-70, or Line6 X3 Live. That kind of gear …
    Can anyone tell me a really good shop or shopping complex close by Low Yat Plaza (or if I can get this type of gear in Low Yat ?) so I can buy some stuff ?

    Much appreciated. I won’t have a lot of time to travel around K.L, so would like to be able to shop close by that area.

    Thanks for any help.

    Grant.
    (from New Zealand).

    I am just window shopping for a job as a sales man .Played the guitag for 25 years in the pubs in India now setteled in Malaysia .After a long service at delifrance foods Malaysia as a packer I worked at Carismen Dolce music shop at sri hartamas .Now I am 61 years but still going strong I play western light music and also the digital piano with ACM. I speak english well and can forward My expertise on the aucostic and classical guitars .It is not product name or cost of an instrument that gives the value of an instrument but the general sales that catagorises and popular sales names that carry the weight of being of best choise. But with a little advice on instrument conception can change or convince the buyer into investing on a lower quality instrument for which it is worth just as well .I have seen the best kinds crack or grow stiff and brittle for not being in use or played .Just vigorus playing on the instrument alone can bring about a complete quality uplift on the instrument.It is the same with the cheap models in the market.Except for bad workmanship any guitar would sound just as well .It is the musician who plays not the instrument or the wood it is made off.But the belief of a popular musicians oppinion is taken for granted by the general public and the pride to hold an expensive instrument without even knowing how well to play it, is the trend of the times.Who ever plays the guitar for 12 to 18 or 24 hours a day, if you do know someone like that which I am sure you haven”t. For him all guitars are the same except for the designs.In the beginning there was only one type of guitar and all had to play it .But now the classic guitar player simply strugles with an acoustic .And they cant conceptualise palying a violin with guitar strings .The audience don’t come out and say your guitar sounds like a violin do they.Well since the division of the different types of guitars that are in the market today is the cause of the poor concept of music itself.This you can visualise in the the project “Malaysian Idol’. How come they came today but draw a larger crowd than the ones who have been in the profession for ages .That is the way people are today .If you are not good looking then you dont know how to play .People do not hear music ,but merely come to see the the glare and sparkle of lights and noise .Simple logic says that large crowds distort the music and turns the musician into an actor acting his part as a performer and nothing more .These are the great musicians of today.

    Yo man, I just thought I’d let you know that your website is running very slowly. If you’re looking for a fast WordPress host then I recommend http://www.fusionhost.com. I’ve been using them for a few years and they are faultless, especially for the price. They also have WordPress on their 1-click installer if you have any other blogs ;-) Take care!

    @Gapnap

    Im new in KL and i didnot understand what Someone said about the “you know Who’s” On lelong
    Can you explain to me what that means?

  25. Coming from my investigation, shopping for consumer electronics online may be easily expensive, although there are some how-to’s that you can use to help you get the best bargains. There are often ways to locate discount bargains that could help make one to hold the best gadgets products at the smallest prices. Thanks for your blog post.

  26. Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you may remove me from that service? Thanks!

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone
    with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  28. This website has some very helpful info on it! Cheers for helping me.

    I have realized that of all forms of insurance, medical care insurance is the most questionable because of the struggle between the insurance coverage company’s necessity to remain adrift and the client’s need to have insurance coverage. Insurance companies’ earnings on overall health plans are low, hence some companies struggle to make money. Thanks for the suggestions you reveal through this website.

  32. One more thing. I do believe that there are a lot of travel insurance web pages of reputable companies that permit you to enter your holiday details and find you the rates. You can also purchase your international travel cover policy on the internet by using your current credit card. All you should do should be to enter your own travel specifics and you can begin to see the plans side-by-side. You only need to find the system that suits your budget and needs after which use your bank credit card to buy the item. Travel insurance online is a good way to start looking for a reliable company for international travel cover. Thanks for giving your ideas.

    Thanks for your publication on this weblog. From my own experience, often times softening way up a photograph could possibly provide the photo shooter with a little bit of an inventive flare. Oftentimes however, this soft clouds isn’t what precisely you had planned and can often times spoil an otherwise good picture, especially if you consider enlarging the item.

    I have discovered some significant things through your website post. One other point I would like to mention is that there are plenty of games available and which are designed specially for preschool age small children. They incorporate pattern identification, colors, animals, and styles. These commonly focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This keeps children occupied without feeling like they are studying. Thanks
