My parents decided to pay for me to have guitar lessons when I was young.
I enjoyed learning to play the guitar so much because the teacher was fantastic.
I learned this guy had played in a few different bands and in a way, he was famous, but to the older generation mostly. He was retired from music, but he was still teaching, and to me it was an honor to be his pupil. Another thing I appreciated was the fact that the temperature control settings were always great in the area we were practicing music. Something I noticed was that the temperature control settings were different depending on where we were in the house. He generally kept his kitchen cool, the living room, and the garage where we normally practiced. He had soundproofing in there so it didn’t matter how loud the music was and I was really able to get into the music. It seemed like the more the AC system was cranking, the better I was able to play. My parents wouldn’t even let me play my guitar in the house, but my father eventually soundproofed the garage and let me play in there. He seemed annoyed when I complained about it being overheated in the garage, but he ended up paying an HVAC professional to install a ductless mini split air conditioner in there. After some time, eventually my buddies found out about me playing the guitar and they wanted to get a band together. We ended up practicing in the garage and they even came to learn a few things from my guitar teacher. He wasn’t only about playing guitar, he knew about playing drums and other instruments. Before we knew it, we were playing our own shows as a band and we were pretty darn good.
