Online guitar lessons with a private teacher on Superprof

What levels of guitar lessons are provided? 

Whether you are a beginner or intermediate player, you will be able to easily find a teacher for you. Our tutors cater their lessons to the needs of each student so if you are just starting out your lessons will have a focus on learning the basics such as basic key chords so that you will soon be able to learn how to play a multitude of songs. Learning how to use the instrument and what the various parts and strings are called, strumming tips, some scales and chords. Mastering these will put you in good stead for making further progress. 

If you are more on the intermediate level, learning specific songs that you want to know and learning about more advanced techniques as well as cleaning up your playing are possible ways your lessons could go. However, it depends on your needs, level and what you desire to learn. These are lessons for you, the tutor will make sure you attain your goals. An advantage of using a one-on-one tutor compared to learning in a big open class! 

Our guitar tutors in Galway

You will be able to avail of the help of tutors who not only know the guitar extremely well, but also skills such as vocals, and various playing styles such as guitar picking and playing instrumental music. 

With their help, you will be able to learn your favourite songs and any specific song that you wish to learn.  

If you have never played the guitar before then don’t fear. Our tutors are also happy and able to help beginners start their musical journey. The basics will be covered in detail so that you will have the skills and knowledge to continue to more advanced things in the future.   

How to make the most of your guitar lessons 

There are a few things that you can do to make the most of your grinds. An important one is a consistency, try and do your lessons at the same time on the same day. This will help keep you in the flow and motivated to continue learning, even when you experience difficult moments.  

Repetition. If you can’t do something keep trying over and over. Even if you can play a particular chord well, continuously practising will help improve your coordination and speed thereby helping in other areas of your playing. 

If you don’t have the means to travel to a tutor’s home then online lessons will be very useful for you. Don’t let distance or lack of transport prevent you from learning. Online classes can actually be cheaper than online ones, while still offering the same content and aid that an in-person lesson would have.  

Music in Galway 

Galway is well known for being a music capital. Plenty of music events and festivals throughout the year take place in Galway. For example, there is the Galway international arts festival that takes place every year since 1978! It hosts a variety of arts performances but one of the main parts is music performances. There is a big showcase of various bands and styles, allowing people to hopefully experience something new and interesting. 

Despite its size, Galway has plenty of bars and places where live music is the focus of the location. Some famous examples are Tigh Coili, Taaffes Bar and the Crane bar. Here you can find great Trad music in intimate and comfortable settings.  

Next year there will be the Galway early music festival which is an event that focuses on Medieval Irish music and instruments and it allows people to learn more about Medieval Galway so that both the modern and historical aspects can be enjoyed by all. Galway is a hotpot for everything to do with music, whether you’re super into it or not, it’s a great place to go for it.
