Other Guitar Teachers/Schools
The London Guitar Institute
|Integration of concepts: (i.e. learning barre chords)||Most guitar teachers barely scratch the surface. They'll move on to one concept to the next without much integration of the current concept. (The latest one you've been working on - i.e. barre chords)||We make 100% certain that you have an in-depth understanding of the current concepts at hand. We always push you to really understand the details about the concepts we're working on. Integration is one of our 7 keys.|
|Typical progress after 6 months of training:||After 6 months you will at best know the concepts worked on during this period at a basic level. You will not have a definite picture in your mind about the details and feel lost at time.||After 6 months you will have devoured some solid guitar meat. Your growth will be evident and you will feel confident about the concepts we've worked on. You will have a very CLEAR PICTURE in your mind.|
|Student events||No, most guitar teachers unfortunately never have a single event for their students.||We arrange periodic student events and concerts. Once a year we offer a workshop at Lake Como (Italy) for all our guitar students. It's a time to get away from it all and get together to learn more about this amazing instrument while enjoying the surrounding beauty of one of the most beautiful places on earth. It's also a time for you to reflex on your own life and goals and take your guitar playing to the next level.
This is what is being said about Como:
"Lake Como is surely one of the most celebrated and beautiful lakes, if not places, in the world. It has long been a magnet of elite international tourism, an obligatory stop on the classic Grand Tour."
|Additional resources||No.||All students will have access to our online guitar portal. Additional guitar materials get added periodically for you to enjoy!|
|Student get together||No.||During the year when a great guitarist is performing we often go as a group to view the performances together.
This will encourage you in your own playing and motivate you to go to new heights!
|Listen to your needs, wants and desires||Mediocre at best. Most guitar teachers do not make much of an effort or pretend to care.||We always do our best to help you learn music that you want to learn. We attentively listen to your needs and help you to find the best possible solution to your musical problem.|
|Can teach classical, jazz, rock, acoustic & pop||A very small chance at that. Probably not.||We teach most guitar styles on a world-class level including rock/pop, blues, funk, metal, classical, jazz, soul and other.|
|Are excellent guitarists and teachers||95% of all guitar teachers in London are semi-professional. They are competent, but have major limitations. Some guitar teachers are intermediate players looking to earn money without providing value in exchange.||Our guitar teachers are extremely qualified and have many years of teaching experience. Our head guitar teacher has achieved a outstanding level of proficiency on his instrument and can teach all levels including professional guitarists.|
|Have performed on major stages||Rarely, but there are exceptions of course.||Our head guitar teacher has performed at various festivals including the Montreux Jazz Festival and some major venues in London, Switzerland, Paris and South Africa.|
|Have a track record of happy students||Sometimes.||We have a very good record of happy students and some of them have been with us for over 5 years.|
|Teach the best methods, "secrets" and the nature of the guitar||Sometimes.||This is our speciality.
From the first lesson to advanced techniques (in future lessons), We'll always emphasis the nature of the guitar.
|Motivates you with such a passion that you are inspired to play!||Probably not.||We believe that learning the guitar is 80% psychology and 20% skills. Your mindset and motivation levels are therefore undeniably important. Our service and style of teaching ensures you are motivate and inspired to help you get the best from your guitar lessons with us.|
