I think it's good to take at least a few lessons because my teacher can give me a lot of practicing tips and tell me what i'm doing wrong and what to fix and everything. You should take maybe a few lessons if you can then try learning everything else yourself. [ lil_dancer911's advice column | Ask lil_dancer911 A Question ]
