There is a HUGE difference between a 'so-called' guitar teacher , who has learnt a few songs and is 'having a go' at teaching and a real guitar teacher. You're development as a guitar player depends on REAL lessons.
Has your guitar teacher got a real musical history? Really? Where did they attend university? On their doorstep or did they make an effort to go to the best schools?
What qualifications do they have? Don't count guitar grades for this one, it's a good start but it's not on par with university qualifications.
If you are looking for real guitar lessons near Stafford with a real guitar teacher then you will probably have to travel.
Scott Adams is a former Guthrie Govan student and ACM graduate as well as MANY other things!!
He's been teaching since 1999 in a dedicated guitar teaching studio ( not someones home!! ) and is closer than you think.
Why not find out why some students travel from as far as Manchester to Penkridge for guitar Lessons.
