...to start giving guitar lessons?

I'd say I've got the basic theory down, (major and minor scales, chord construction, intervals, basic time sigs etc.) enough for what a beginner would need anyway.

As this is UG, I'm guessing there's plenty of guitar tutors here. Any stories, advice you could give? How do you teach?

First step of teaching is to buy a new amp

You'll actually find that most people in this section of UG no longer even play guitar

Incidentally, I live in the same city as you, and there is a lack of decent guitar teachers.

Trade secrets. Sorry mate.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

P-please...?


You'll have to take teaching lessons I'm afraid.

I can't just give away this stuff for free.

You aren't ready to teach if you don't know where to begin in the first place. Offer free lessons and get your experience that way. Otherwise, you'll be clueless and the people paying you good money will start to notice.

tbh I taught a friend's brother after like a couple of years playing and it was fine. Like I think you have to be honest with yourself and the student and know when to suggest they move on, but for the very basic stuff, I don't think you need to have been at it for twenty years or whatever.

Try spamming every corner of the internet like Tom Hess

Actually... no... DON'T do that.

We do not need another Tom Hess.

The question you need to ask is simply can I teach someone music? You must be a good teacher. The guy who teaches those Asian girls to play Paganini doesnt play guitar, but hes an amazing teacher. You just need to be able to teach someone knowledge they do not know.
