Are you looking into learning the guitar? Tired of scrolling through unhelpful Youtube video after unhelpful Youtube video? As with most things, the best way to learn any new skills is by being taught by a real-life person who is active and engaged in the role of teacher. Learning a new instrument as a beginner can be a little bit daunting, but hiring a skilled teacher can help get you through that initial frustrating stage where every skill and technique feels foreign and unfamiliar. Learning guitar with a music teacher, as a beginner, makes chords, scales, and sheet music much more manageable. Even for intermediate or advanced players, there are guitar teachers who are ready to help you take your technique and skills to the next level.
Learn what you like to play! It's important for your engagement and your practice sessions that you are learning music styles that appeal to you. There's no point just learning scales and chords without having pieces of music that you aspire to be able to learn to play as a goal. So if you are a lover of jazz music, or blues, rock, or classical, you need to express your musical preferences to your guitar teacher. If they're any good (and this is one way to tell) they'll take your taste onboard and prepare some jazz, blues, rock or classical music that you enjoy for you to learn in your music lesson.
So whether you want to learn acoustic or electric guitar in your music lessons, or you want to learn classical, jazz, blues or rock songs to impress your family and friends, you can find a skilled and capable tutor to teach you what chord to use and which to avoid, what scales are most helpful for your preference and which strumming techniques are most appropriate. Learning guitar can be a fun, exciting process, as long as the teachers are good and engaged in your learning. Many guitar teachers who provide lessons on Superprof offer a free first session for you to sit with a prospective teacher and discuss their methods and your goals. You should book, taking the opportunity to see if you and the teacher are a good fit on a more personal level. Is this someone you'd like to learn from? Apart from their reviews, do you feel that you two get along? Are they friendly and professional? These are the types of questions that you should be asking yourself, to help yourself get a good sense of if hiring them is a good or bad idea.
No matter where you live in Sydney, there's a teacher around the corner waiting to give you guitar music lessons. Don't forget, the first session is often free, so jump on the Superprof page and start browsing through the advertisements on there. Book with a teacher and head to your first guitar lesson! If you want to learn how to shred like Hendrix, this is the first step. You'll have to start out as a beginner, but soon you'll be able to say that you're an intermediate player, and advanced will only be a stone throw away!
Well, perhaps it won't be THAT easy. You'll have to practice playing your electric or acoustic guitar at home for hours, days, and maybe even years if you're to become accomplished enough to call yourself an advanced player. That said, the road does get easier and more exciting as you progress, so don't give up. They say the hardest part for new guitar players is developing those first tough callouses on your fingers. In the beginning, playing can be a bit painful without those callouses, but once you have them, plucking, strumming and chord techniques become much easier.
These days, since the pandemic, educators of all types of subjects are transitioning their lessons online. Guitar teachers are no exception. Students can book an online guitar lesson and view their teacher on their webcam from the safety and privacy of their own homes. You can book the best online guitar lessons with guitar teachers on Superprof. Many students find that learning to play the guitar online is easier and more accessible than learning a guitar teacher conventionally, because they aren't forced to travel, or organise to have a teacher come over. Students can learn chords, songs, and how to read music as beginners from home with online guitar lessons. If you want to learn to play the guitar but you're concerned about contact with others, learning online might be a great option for you!
Have you been playing the guitar for years? Have you taught guitar lessons in the past? Do you have some free time for teaching? Do you want to make some extra cash? If you answered yes to these questions, it might be time for you to put your teaching hat on and sign up as a guitar teacher with Superprof. It's completely free to do and takes no time at all.
Remember back to your first beginner guitar lesson, when you were learning to play your acoustic or electric guitar for the first time. Did your teacher do the right things with you? Well, they must have done something right, because you're now an advanced player if you're considering becoming a guitar teacher. It might be time to take what you now know and pass it on to the next generation of shredders. Teach your students how to read sheet music, and make your lessons fun and engaging. Teaching students how to play the guitar might not always be easy, but it will give you a great sense of achievement when your student starts nailing their first chords and songs.
