Guitar lessons with RGT registered tutors
Whenever you decide to take on learning a new musical instrument, it can be exciting but hard to imagine the end result. Starting off as a complete novice, what’s the real secret to picking up a skill quickly and mastering an entirely new craft like playing the guitar? It’s a hugely popular instrument and a good player can turn their hand to almost any style of music, but if you’ve never played one before it doesn’t come easy without some pointers in the right direction.
You’ll need to start by finding someone, probably within your local area, that has the appropriate qualifications to teach you. For example, if you were to search for guitar lessons in Edinburgh, you’d certainly find a guitar tutor with relevant experience pretty easily. Bear in mind that just because someone knows how to play the guitar well, that may not make them an ideal tutor by any stretch. Teaching someone else to play a musical instrument probably requires even more patience than you’ll need yourself! At this point you may find yourself wishing there was a way to independently check the skill level of your potential teacher.
Fortunately, that’s exactly what’s available to you with the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT), an international organisation with almost 25 years of experience. The aim of RGT is to help professional guitar tutors gain recognition and raise their profiles, with the overall goal of increasing standards of teaching for everyone. Of course this is better for tutors, but more importantly it helps new learners get access to better teachers and learn to play the guitar to a higher standard more quickly.
Using RGT to find an appropriate teacher for guitar lessons in your local area is very straightforward. You can simply search by postcode to bring up local results and find contact information. You might not know immediately which tutor will be the best match for your personality and skill level, but you’ll have access to information about each tutor’s experience and background to help you make an informed choice. Meanwhile, if you’re a skilled guitarist looking for new students to teach, we’d highly recommend becoming a registered tutor on RGT to maximise your chances of success.
