Hi Im keen to chat with other comtemporary rock and pop focused guitar
teachers for the purpose of sharpening our skills and sharing resources.

If this sounds like you give me a hoy!

well, for technique, the best bet is to get a real teacher. its hard to show someone what to do and do a in depth analysis of technique over the internet. as for theory, well thats theory. you can generally learn this on your own and by asking questions. though im sure a real face to face person would be better as i've taught a couple friends theory and they seem to understand it decently at a beginner level since thats all they wanted, but over the internet its hard to give examples for me as sometimes i use physical examples and metaphors.

I've taught a few people basics and am about to start teaching a friend... I'd like tips.

Tip #1 - Don't travel to students' houses. You don't know who that person is, nor what sort of environment they live in until you show up.

My horror story was a guy who lived in a third-floor attic apartment of a house with no air conditioning. It was the middle of July so probably 35 degrees outside, and probably 50 degrees inside. Walking in the front door of the house (not even close to the attic yet), I was bowled over by the smell of cat. It only worsened until I got to the attic apartment, at which point, I wasn't sure if my eyes were bleeding or just watering from the acidic air in there. There were four cats, one WAY over-filled litter box that surely hadn't been cleaned out in weeks, and I had to move newspapers and a stale looking popcorn bowl just so I could sit down on their couch to do the lesson. There was no other place to sit that was not covered by something more.

Teach in your own space if at all possible. Even if that space happens to be at a music store.

Hoy I guess, although I'm not focused on one style I teach what I feel is necesary and what they like themselves of course.

I really want to teach, but I don't know how to get into the business ! I'm only sixteen but I feel like I am more then qualified to teach at least beginner - intermediate students.

Hoy!

And good tip by Axemanchris. Teaching in your own space is usually the best policy, but I don't mind travelling when the money's right.


Has Guitar Hero made a huge impact on anyone else's students?
I do a program at my old high school in addition to teaching on my own... it's like a 6 week class for beginners. It seems like more than half of the kids who come through were drawn to the instrument by the game. Anyone else had a similar experience?

I would like to know if you can be a self-taught guitarist and drummer, and still teach professionally. Also, what does one need to do to become a freelance teacher?

I have more questions, but I'll wait until later.

Hoy!! I am a self-taught guitarist/drummer/bassist, but I took classical violin lessons for about 8-9 years.

I just started giving guitar and violin lessons a month ago, got 3 students and hoping to get more... I love it!

My main problem is getting the word out it seems... the music store that specializes in mostly guitars here closed a couple months back, there's another tiny little one (I mean tiny as in probably smaller than most of your bedrooms) but they are almost never open and specialize mostly in piano, flute, woodwinds, some violin/viola/cello, etc... not really any guitar stuff there...

I've tried putting up fliers on phone poles, grocery stores, community college, and near schools so kids see them..... also advertised on Craigslist.....I got 3 students in like 2 weeks but not even a prospect since....

Any suggestions as far as advertising go?

To teach privately in your home or whatever, all you need to be able to do is convince prospective students to throw money at you for your services. Not necessarily any training required.

To teach in a school or something is a whole other ball of wax, and self-guided education is not even close to adequate.

I did not post in your thread before you send me your message, therefore you're advertising some site I'm not interested in *reported*


I suggest you check your facts before you go REPORTING anyone,
or you might end up getting reported for making false reports.

i'm 15 years old and i have 8 students at the moment. they're all beginner - intermediate. just pass on by word of mouth that you want to teach.
