Classical Guitar Complete - The UK Association ...

EGTA (UK) (Registered charity number 1125411) exists to improve the position of classical guitar teachers in the United Kingdom, and to provide a forum for UK classical guitar teachers to exchange views and participate in Continuing Professional Development activities.

Broadly speaking our operational aims are to continue to improve the standard of guitar teaching in the United Kingdom, to raise the status of the instrument, and to widen interest in classical guitar playing across the country.

We endeavour to achieve these goals through organising and supporting events around the UK; running an annual conference; providing advice and guidance to newly-qualified classical guitar teachers; campaigning for changes in curriculum and syllabus; advocating the inclusion of classical guitar teaching methods throughout UK music education; reaching out to our European colleagues for mutual support and solidarity.
