What's So Special About G4 GUITAR?
- A Method That Works! - Most guitar teachers have no plan or structure. Their lessons are often improvised and untested. At G4 we have spent over 30 years developing a method that really works.
- Teacher Training & Support - The average guitar teacher is usually self-taught meaning no actual teacher training. We believe teachers should practice what they preach and seek out training from their peers. G4 teachers have undergone specific training and continue to get ongoing support to ensure they are always improving.
- No Extra Costs For Books - When you take lessons with your average guitar teacher they will generally ask you to buy books or sheet music. At G4 we supply everything you need in the form of printed material so you'll need to pay extra for lesson books.
I am super happy to comment on your guitar school. I think it’s quite amazing! I was fortunate to chance upon five introductory guitar lessons at the G4 Guitar School. I commenced with some hesitation and trepidation as, although I am a children’s performer/singer/storyteller, I am mainly self taught and the idea of formal lessons made me fraught with anxiety. However, the clear instruction and methodology had me hooked. Furthermore, the support with practice and Joakim’s willingness to answer any question with ease and clarity and his overall patience has been very encouraging. I am inspired to continue!
What Do We Mean By The 80/20 Of GUITAR?
The G4 GUITAR METHOD is based around the 80/20 Principle which says that 80% of results come from just 20% of your efforts. By focusing on the 20% which we call 'The 7 Essential Skills of Guitar' you will succeed much sooner with much less effort. This is especially important in the early months. I realised in my early years of teaching guitar that most students tended to quit in the first 6 months but those who made it past the first 6 month point were much less likely to quit. I also noticed when I was managing music schools that the rate of attrition among guitar students was much higher than most other instruments yet guitar was the most popular instrument. It just didn’t make sense to me. There had to be a good reason but as I discovered it was not easily uncovered. I eventually uncovered the answers and developed a whole new way of teaching guitar that saw my student success rates climb immediately. I found that understanding why students gave up in those early months was the key to long term success and became the basis to the G4 GUITAR METHOD. - David Hart Creator of the G4 GUITAR METHOD.
So far, I have been learning guitar with G4 Guitar for just over half a year and have thoroughly enjoyed the lessons. I feel that the structure of classes and practice schedules has helped keep me on track and even this early on, I can see that it is starting to provide results. The lessons are fun and I enjoy attending them and learning with G4. Thanks to the G4 Guitar Method, I am doing so much better than I could have if I had just decided to self-learn the instrument.
