Registry of Guitar Tutors

A good guitar teacher can save you years of struggling, by showing you how to do things the best way from the start. So, whether you want to learn electric guitar, acoustic guitar or bass guitar, I can help.

The Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) was established in 1992 with the aims of improving the status and profile of guitar teachers, and helping to ensure their professional recognition within the mainstream of music education, by the establishment of an accredited range of comprehensive and well structured teaching programmes.

Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) has now merged with the London College of Music (LCM), and is rebranded as 'RGT@LCM'. Since its creation, RGT has collaborated with the London College of Music, which is part of the University of West London (UWL), to provide internationally-recognised accredited exams across the spectrum of popular guitar music in electric, rock, acoustic, jazz, bass guitar and ukulele from beginner to Diploma level.
