Guitar Lessons in Johannesburg

Ask people what instrument they would love to learn and notice how many people will say ‘guitar’!

Maybe it’s the rock star appeal that goes with guitar playing, or maybe it is because it is such a socially-rewarding instrument. Think about it, a guitar can go wherever you go, and not only that, but even just a little harmonic strumming can change the atmosphere and create an occasion out of nothing at all.

So, you will be pleased to know that when it comes to your guitar lessons Gauteng search, you will not be disappointed! Whether you are looking for a guitar school near me, or guitar lessons for kids, when it comes to finding lessons, there are many options for both beginners and intermediate players.

In the vibrant city of Johannesburg where the live music scene absolutely thrives there is no shortage of professional musicians who teach guitar lessons for kids and adults.  

Generally, guitar lessons are affordable and there are many guitar style options or music genres to choose from, so if this has been one of your dreams, get ready for overwhelming results for your guitar lessons Gauteng search. In fact, so overwhelming that it might be worth searching the Superprof website for guitar tutors who are actually located near to you.

This way you will see a display of all the tutors on one page. There’s a write up and photograph of each tutor that describes the type of guitar lessons they offer and shows their hourly rate upfront (with you needing to ask). And if they have been a Superprof tutor for some time you could even check out their reviews under their profile.

However, there are other options, if you have been searching guitar school near me, perhaps you are one of those people who loves to learn in a group. Whatever your preference, here are some helpful tips to help you make your decision and get on the road with your guitar lessons.

Searching Guitar School Near Me? Private Music Schools Worth Noting

When it comes to music schools in Johannesburg you have heaps to choose from. Always try and find a review, and of course, in a city as big and traffic congested as Johannesburg, you really want to make sure you search guitar school near me (save time for practice)! Also, bear in mind, if you are interested in guitar and in the process of choosing a High School, make sure you find out which schools in your area offer music as a subject.

Here are a few High Schools and private music schools in Johannesburg worth looking into:

  • Shine Music School
  • National School of the Arts
  • The Campus of Performing Arts
  • Abraham Devar’s Academy for Music

What About an Online Guitar School?  

You might be searching guitar lessons Gauteng, but the amazing truth is that if you are willing to be taught online, which is more than possible these days via a webcam and platforms like Zoom, Skype and Google Meet, you can sign up with an online school or tutor from just about anywhere in the world.

Also, the internet is full of free resources too. So if you are an absolute beginner or looking for guitar lessons for kids, for instance, it might be worth checking out some of the free tutorials on a channel like YouTube. Here, you could orientate yourself (or your child) to really get a sense of what you are in for when you commit to guitar lessons.

Online Guitar Lessons to Supplement Your Learning

Even if your guitar lessons Gauteng, or guitar school near me searches yielded excellent results and you have found a school or music tutor to suit you, supplementing your lessons with online tutorials to motivate your practice is an excellent day for any stage of guitar learning.

Besides that, as a music lover you will know that there is much more to it all than simply playing an instrument.

There is also the history and the incredible talent behind those guitars that are worth finding out about too! If, for example you are a Blues fanatic, research a bit online about the greats. You never know, when you find out a little bit more about Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton or Robert Johnson it could be the thing that keeps you motivated to keep going when your guitar lessons get difficult. Not only that, but watching old video footage of them playing could really add depth to your own learning.

Guitar Lessons for Kids

If you are in Gauteng, you should easily be able to find guitar lessons for kids. If you use the Superprof site, the process is the same. Read the profiles of the potential tutors and see if any of them specialise in guitar lessons for kids. Remember that you might need a smaller guitar as well!

One of the other added advantages of Superprof is that in many cases the tutors actually offer the first lesson for free. This will give you a good opportunity to find out more about age-appropriate lessons. When it comes to children, they can be quite fickle about new activities so find out if you can commit per month or term instead of signing up for a whole year when you are not sure if the interest will take off long term or not!

A private tutor is a fantastic way to learn any new instrument because, like learning a brand new language, it requires great focus. Furthermore, in private lessons you get to learn at your own pace and at a time that fits into the rest of your schedule. Not only that but when you get to parts of the lessons that require more practice, your tutor can focus on those problem areas while you don’t waste valuable time on aspects that you have already mastered.

Play, Play and Play!

So whether its punk, music theory, sight-reading, folk or electric guitar, you can be sure that if you are in Gauteng, there are lessons available near you. Finally, in the words of Eddie Van Halen, remember the real secret at the end of the day is simple: “play, play and then play
