Squats really aren't that hard to learn on your own. There's no reason a level-headed beginner can't start squatting on his own.

If you have a mirror and you start with light weights, you can monitor yourself for form. Yes, there's a bit of due diligence involved, but it ain't exactly rocket science...

That having been said, the importance of doing all of these exercises with proper form cannot be overstated.
