so, i'm tight on cash atm and i'm thinking of giving lessons to kids beggining to play.

i'm thinking £10 per half hour? if it doesn't go well i will reduce to lower but i was wondering what should i teach them.

it would be easy just to do basic theory, chords and some tabs and stuff off the interwebz.

so, what does the pit think?

I'm trying the same thing at the moment but not for cash, I need to do community service (it's a school required thing, I'm not a convict) and I'm teaching the guy basic theory, some chords and some famous riffs that I know off by heart.


how much do you charge per hour/half hour?
#10
I pay €17 for half an hour (that should be close to 13 quid)
#11
Talk to other guitar teachers in your area, as there's usually a "general" price, out here it's about £18/hour for up to grade 8. Set price for all grades.

You are one cheap whore.


Nah, that's an ok price. That's 20 an hour which sounds very good.

I'd be happy with £10 per hour, but I guess its just down to what you're teaching.

**** school!

whats it ever done for you?

I think you should leave, the minimum age for UG is 13 and you can't be older than 12, at least mentally. If I don't do community service I don't get an IB diploma (the equivalent of A levels, or a US high school diploma) and I don't go to uni. If I don't go to uni I don't get a good job. I can either give this kid guitar lessons for free, or live on the street. Gee, tough choice. Indeed your contempt for the education system explains why I had to repost my original post 3 times until you understood.

Or you could say fuck school, drop out and ask UG how much you should charge for guitar lessons and how you should do them.

You =/= your teacher

£5 for half an hour seems reasonable if you've never taught before. Hell, that's almost double the minimum wage.

How long have you been playing cause if u've been playing less than,i'd say a year and a half you shouldn't get more 10 pounds, here its anywhere from 20-40 U.S. dollars for a half hour depending on the teacher's experience and teaching skill. :stickpoke

Yes, yes that's exactly what i meant.

But really if you've never taught before i think you should be paying the student. I mean they are giving up their free time just to give you the chance to teach them.
#31
£10 might be a bit too high..

i pay £17.50 for 2 hours. but it is a class though with other people. i prefer it though, its better to jam and they are all good as well, so you have to keep up or u will fall behind.

you fail at guitar and therfore cannot teach, Gooday sir.

Dear Threadstarter (n to the k),

I heard your rendition of "kryptonite". It sounds to me like you still need practice at guitar and you need to learn your timing and rhythm in songs. Therefore I must advise you NOT to partake in an activity where you are paid to teach guitar.

I'm about to start teaching beginners aswell, but quick question, how would you market yourself? Just word of mouth? Flyers? Any tips?

No my dear metalhead, I am not the one whom created Christian Rock. That was one of the wimpier disciples. I am the one whom created those funkadelic tones heard in my body of the one they call Hendrix.

I don't think it is appropriate for a 6th-grader to give guitar lessons. I've never known anyone <15 years-old that was mildly decent at any sort of instrument. Ten pounds is pretty cheap, considering most teachers charge $20+ where I live for a half hour. You get what you pay for, though. [usually]
