Currently, there are many training centers are opened above to serve the needs of learning guitar, but how to choose a quality educational institution still is what makes many people wonder. With 13 years experience playing genres such as POP, Semi-classic, Finger Style, Mr. Tuan advised the youth training centers want to choose quality above under the following six criteria:
1. Teaching method
Besides manual instrument, let’s see the center’s teachers have focused on music theory training to learners master knowledge or not. With a solid foundation of music, students will easily handle music in style.
The process of teaching and learning be committed by the center from the beginning to the participants. Modern teaching methods, lesson system to help students grasp the knowledge and skills efficiently and save time. Besides, training institutions also focused above all the assessment after each course.
2. Quality teachers
Lecturers good is essential for learning guitar. He or she needs good teaching skills, graduated from the academy, music pedagogy centers, experienced and enthusiastic about teaching, how inspiring learners love and passion .
The curriculum includes both theoretical and practical training, bringing higher usability for learners easily absorb. Many centers will use textbooks compiled separately but should have a reliable source of reference.
4. Adherence between practitioners and center
All business, especially business education must focus learner serve. Besides teaching, the center should have the tools to track academic progress of each student as contacts, track learning patterns. The number of participants should only 6-10 people in a class. Learning music is to learn skills so necessary hands-direct, less the amount learned. If the center has organized extracurricular lessons help students have more practical knowledge, learn from each other exchanges will be a plus point.
You should find out where study suitable with your personal preferences or not (for example around a quiet space), convenient for traveling from home, school, workplace to training centers.
6. Facilities at the center
The equipment as musical instrument, furnished, bookshelf must be equipped, light and room temperature properly help learners prepare comfort is what you are interested.
Currently, some training centers in developing countries are adopting modern technology in teaching. For example, using the system Head-Amps (headphones directly into musical instrument), participants focused on the sound of their own herd without being influenced by the other students. “In order to most accurately assess before choosing the face to send in gold, you should request participants with hearing or trial lesson first and then decide,” Mr. Tuan noted.
