Where do we start?......................Well what about............

teach guitar

The chords used during the early stages are drawn from the eight beginners chords (C A Am G E Em D and Dm) that go to make up "The CAGED System" which are widely regarded by those who already teach guitar as the first chords that a novice player should learn.

Becoming familiar with these eight basic chords and developing the ability to change between them at will is generally recognised as being the best way for an absolute beginner to develop a mastery of the guitar.

There can be quite literally months of effective study and rapid improvement for a beginner guitarist using only the eight chords detailed above
If you break the study of guitar down into a series of objectives with measurable and acheivable outcomes (always a good idea when you teach guitar) then the early part of a students journey (the first few months of lessons) can be "to master a set of appropriate chords that will allow them to play thousands of songs and to develop the ability to move between those chords comfortably and in time" The "first guitar chords" handout is a great place to start. The chords allow you to teach the novice guitarist to develop the ability to move between the important chords to be found in several common keys and in the process become capable of playing literally thousands of songs.

To an experienced guitarist the ability to play eight chords might not seem like much but it is a reality that guitar players who decide to teach and who are new to teaching often try to do "too much too soon" with novice players (and end up confusing and discouraging them along the way) Experienced practitioners who teach guitar know that (along with a few well chosen single note lines) the chords on the "first guitar chords" sheet will supply the basis for months of study for a novice on the guitar.

Marketing and administrating your Guitar Teaching business


The guitar teaching diary and accounting system and musician's diary is included with both the guitar and bass teaching toolkit. The teacher's diary and appointment sheets allow you to record details of daily or weekly income and expenditure as you go.

No more opening the door to a lesson you forgot that you booked or worse still opening the door to two people you accidentaly told to come at the same time!

This stuff takes all of the hassle out of both booking appointments and doing the annual accounts letting you teach the guitar rather than have to worry about the administration? This flexible system offers a choice of "day to view" or "week to view" diary form and the package also contains separate sheets for details of expenditure if required.

It's the boring stuff and not the reason why we teach guitar and bass guitar but since it has to be done we might as well make it as easy and stress free as possible?

Publicise your Guitar Teaching Business

Included in the guitar teacher's toolkit are a selection of guitar themed business card designs that you can just drop into any photo editing package and add your own text. The files are presented in ordainary jpeg format allowing you to come up with the material that you need to promote your business within minutes. You can also use them to provide the basis for "camera ready" artwork for any publications or websites that you may use for advertising purposes

Another feature of the materials is that they don't feature our logo all over them. That way when you teach guitar your customers (and your competition!) won't know where you found them.

These materials cost less than a book on teaching guitar and are way more useful than any book could ever hope to be!

If this material was presented in more conventional book form it would cost three times as much and would be nowhere near as useful (you can't print any page of a book over and over again anytime you like at the touch of a button).

Ownership of the teachwombat materials gives you a lifetimes supply of professional materials which will be invaluable as you teach guitar for less than you will be paid to teach a single hour of guitar.

printable chord grids and guitar neck

The Big Grids were at first quite simply giant sized (A4) representations of each of the chords to be found in the caged guitar system (the chords that beginners should learn first) but they have been added to and expanded to include loads of examples dealing with more advanced material. They were originally developed for use in situations where someone would need to teach guitar to a group of students rather than a single pupil (evening classes etc). The idea was that sheets containing each individual chord would be laminated or printed on stiff card and a teacher could display them to the entire class as required.

This is still the case of course and the materials are an invaluable aid for those who earn a living teaching guitar in group situations.

guitar chord handouts jazz guitar

Aside from this group based stuff the strange thing is that The Big Guitar Grids have accidentally gone on to have another life all of their own!

The reality was that students in the groups being taught started to request copies of the GIANT Chord sheets to stick on their own walls at home. It then turned out to be the case that students who normally took individual lessons were just as keen to have access to what one of them called “The Wall Of Guitar Knowledge!

When you think about it most people who learn to play the guitar do their individual practice in a bedroom or study where they are able to plaster the wall with all manner of things.  If the reference material that they require is right there in front of them then they don’t even have to get up from the chair (or the bed!) to look up the guitar chords that they need.
All that and it looks pretty cool too!

You can give your students the grids in any way you want. A popular method seems to be the "Guitar Chord Of The Week" method by which they get to stick them on your wall one at a time gradually building up their own "wall of knowledge".


Many people choose to line the walls of their teaching studios with the big grids (they look great printed out on high quality paper) as an aid to help them teach guitar . It looks fantastic and pointing at a giant chord shape on the wall can be preferable to squinting at a diagram three feet away on a music stand.
