    Yeah? You gotta build up some finger strength. If it's really bad maybe lower the action or go with a lighter string gauge.

    Ask your guitar teacher to help you with this. That's what he's there for.

    You need to press hard enough so the strings don't buzz. You need to fret strings properly though - I don't know how well you play but if you are a beginner bad technique is the main cause of buzzing strings.

    If your technique is good but the strings are really hard to press down then the guitar probably needs adjusting. A nut that is cut to high or a high action caused by the bridge being too high are the main causes.
