Take private lessons with a guitarist on Superprof

You can learn how to play the guitar pretty much anywhere. You can decide to teach yourself, thanks to the myriad of videos and free sheet music you can find online, or you can choose to take music lessons.

In London, you have a wide range of possibilities. Acoustic guitar lessons, classical guitar lessons, electric guitar lessons, and so much more. Everything is possible. And that’s regardless of your geographical location in The Big Smoke. You’ll be able to find guitar instructors in practically every neighbourhood of London. And that’s for all levels, too.

Where can you find guitar instructors in London

The answer is simple: everywhere.

But when the time comes to decide who’s going to teach you bar chords and bass lines, you’re going to have to make a choice. Either you opt for private guitar lessons with a personal tutor who comes to your home, or you decide to learn via online guitar lessons.

The process is simple. If you want to take weekly lessons, you can check out the personal ads, or sites like Superprof, which regroups most independent tutors in London all on one platform.

Depending on your specific needs, you can choose the instructor that best suits your needs. Once you’ve made your choice, just contact them! It’s as easy as that. You’ll be able to plan your lessons directly with them, either at your home, the instructor’s home, or in a studio or music school.

Most private tutors are scattered throughout London and Greater London, so you’ll be able to easily find those that live near you.

What will truly make the difference when making your choice, though, is the chemistry you have with the instructor you choose, their availability and how close they are to you, geographically. These are the three main things to take into account.

The rest, all of the technical details, can come second. Things like learning how to read sheet music or learning contemporary music pieces can always be discussed with whatever instructor you choose.

Guitar lessons in London: why you should get started now

Artistically and, thus, musically speaking, the British capital has its fair share of opportunities.

From a discovery point of view, you have access to all of the different musical styles. So, you’ll be able to choose what type of guitar you prefer to master (steel-string guitar, bass guitar, electric guitar, classical guitar, etc.), based on your favourite musical genre. That’s the first step.

Once your choice has been made, you’ll be able to choose your preferred learning style. Do you prefer to take guitar lessons with a private guitar instructor at your home, for example? Or would you rather integrate a music school and learn in a group?

There are, of course, pros and cons to each learning method, so it’s up to you to decide which suits you best.

Whatever you choose, it’s important to weigh your options, since committing to regular guitar lessons can be a real investment! That’s why, at Superprof, most of our instructors offer the first lesson for free.

This way, you’ll be able to test out whether or not an instructor’s teaching styles fits your needs and musical objectives before signing up for weekly lessons.

How to get started learning the guitar

If this is your first time studying music, you need to start with the basics. No matter what type of guitar you choose to play, your first step is to learn music theory and how to identify the different notes and chords.

Music theory will teach you everything you need to know so that you can then be comfortable reading guitar tabs and sheet music and adapting yourself to the different rhythmic variations you may come across.

Once you’ve mastered music theory, you’ll be able to tackle your favourite compositions, from the latest pop songs to more classic rock guitar solos or folk songs. And, who knows, maybe you’ll even start to improvise.

And to get you started, our London tutors are there to help, no matter where you live in the British capital.

Learning to play the guitar in London

In the United Kingdom, if you’re looking for a first-class education, it’s likely that you’ll find it in London. And that’s in any field, with music being no exception. Whether you just want to learn music as a beginner, or you’re looking to train to become a professional guitarist, the best schools are in London.

And while you may not be aiming to become the next Hendrix or Clapton, once you learn how to use a guitar tuner, start nailing your arpeggios and are able to play a couple of different styles on your Fender or Steinway, it’ll already be a great start!

What’s great about the guitar is that, as a practical and universal instrument, there will always be something new to learn. The more progress you make, the better you’ll want to get until you become one with your instrument.

Eddie Van Halen once said, “if you want music to be your livelihood, then play, play, play and play! And eventually, you’ll get to where you want to be.” And what a better place to get started than London.
