WHY ALL GUITAR PLAYERS IN SEATTLE CAN’T BE GOOD GUITAR TUTORS It’s easy for people to lose interest in the very thing that they were looking forward to when they feel like it’s not their cup of tea. Well, becoming an excellent guitar player is your cup of tea, the fault often lies in how you’re being instructed or rather, by whom you’re being instructed. Most times, we think that by having an amazing guitarist as tutor we’ll be able to play it just like him (or her). But what most of us are unaware of is that being a good guitarist doesn’t mean that they’ll be able to pass on the skill to others. To put it simply, some know how to play but know nothing about teaching it. So before you trust the skills of the guitar instructor based on how good he or she is at playing the instrument, look for the below-mentioned qualities of a competent guitar tutor in Seattle: Calm and Positive Like any other teacher, a good guitar tutor needs to be calm and positive. All guitar beginners tend to get frustrated after their initial lessons, a competent guitar tutor anticipates the beginner’s frustration and tries to keep their spirits high. Your guitar instructor must make you feel like he or she understands your frustration and should be able to counsel you out of it. Or better yet, a guitar tutor should know ways to bypass the beginner’s frustration and make you feel like playing guitar comes naturally to you. Experienced and Wise A guitar teacher who’s been teaching for a long time or has taught many amateur would probably have the qualities that are acquired only with experience. Either a highly experienced or a certified guitar tutor would understand that not all learners are the same and the same technique cannot be applied to teach every single one of them. There are different teaching methods for different learners, and only experienced guitar tutors are wise enough to comprehend that. Based on this knowledge, guitar instructors plan out your lessons in a way that benefits you. Also, good guitar tutors prefer giving specialized lessons to enable them in learning faster and becoming more confident.
