HOW TO CREATE A POSITIVE CLASSROOM COMMUNITY

Creating the positive classroom community helps an administration to enjoy the positive flow of the information in the workplace. The positive classroom community is helpful for promoting the skills. Along with this, it also helps to achieve the academic goals. The positive community classroom helps the administration to create a positive learning environment at the workplace. In order to create a positive classroom community, the administration is needed to focus on some prominent factors.

The concept of creating positive classroom community is applicable in any organisation. Here the pivotal role of the community member is to understand the purpose of their administration. In reverse, the administration needs to build up a better environment for them.

Creating good relationships

The relationship is the vital factor that is needed for creating the positive classroom. In a community, there are numbers of individuals are working together. In order to work together, there is the need for proper coordination at the workplace. For creating the positive classroom community, a good relationship is needed because the classroom is the point of discussion. In the classroom, the entire group is talking as well as discussing the selected issue or topic. The positive classroom defines the friendly working environment, where each of the members is working together with full cooperation. The best relationship is the key factor that helps in creating the positive classroom community.

The best relationship is dependable on the various factors such as believing or trust among the individuals in the community. The good relationship channel among the individuals of the community differs from one administration to the other one. If the community were a classroom of a school, then the relationship status would be defined as the relation between the teachers with their students and parents. Under the situation of a classroom of a school, the responsibility of the teachers is to behave properly with their children or students. In case of any difficulty, while handling any kind, they need to contact directly their parents and discuss the issues with them. This will help them to build up a good relationship.

If the classroom has been taken as a discussion hall of an organisation than the relationship status would be defined as the connection between the boss and its employees. In the discussion room, the authorities and the team members are gathered to hold a discussion session on a particular topic. Here, the authority needs to give proper chance to everyone to present his or her point in front of the others. This will help that administration to create a positive classroom community. The positive classroom community has also been associated with the discussion over the professional issues of the individual. While performing any job what issues they are facing, need to check properly with the authorities. If these kinds of practices took place in the classroom, then it will help to create the best relationship. The reason is, each of the employees will discuss over their problems in that room, which will help to solve easily any issue just by proper discussion. This will automatically generate a verbal relationship with the individuals. Hence, the discussion is considered as another factor for good relationship for creating the positive classroom.

Creating communication channel

For good relationship, proper communication is needed in the workplace. The communication is the tool that is needed by any of the administration for a circular flow of communication in the workplace. In the community, where different kinds of individuals are working together, without having proper communication neither any plan can execute nor would any positive outcome come out. Therefore, for creating a positive classroom community proper communication is needed along with the good relationship. The proper communication refers to the positive flow of communication by following a proper chain from one end to another end. As per the concept of the proper communication, there must be a feedback from the receiver to the sender after decoding the message.

In the case of the classroom of the school, the proper communication refers to the information provided by the teachers to their students and similar should discuss with the parents of the students. In case of small kids, the proper communication played a psychometric role among the teachers, students and parents. If teachers communicate with the parents properly regarding their kids than it further helps them to recreate a positive flow of communication without any fault in it. Under this chain, in any case, if students failed to communicate any information to his or her parents, the parent does not need to suffer because they have already been informed by the teachers.

In the case of the business organisation, the communication is the major tool that helps to take the remedial corrective decision based on the information provided to them by others. In a large sector organisation or small sector organisation, if there is any gap arise in the communication channel, then it might cause to build up of the poor relationship. Therefore, for creating the positive classroom community proper flow of communication is needed. The positive communication channel would help to design and encode a message and sent it to the receiver in a systematic manner. From the other side, the receiver would send the feedback in the respect to that message to the sender. In the positive classroom community, the proper communication plays an important role along with the factor good relationships.

Building upon trust factor

Proper communication helps to build up the trust factor among the members of the community. The trust factor is required to design a good relationship between the sender and the receiver at the workplace. The trust factor can be built up with the community member by giving them the priority. Let them speak, is the basic theory that is applicable to the workplace, the chance for the positive relationship will occur. In any workplace, there should be two-way communications. This would help to build up the trust factor. For example, if the authorities of the community give a chance to their member to speak or to present their views then the members would realise their importance in the workplace. This will help the authorities to build up a strong bonding with them. The two-way communication is also helpful for removing the gap of communication at the workplace.

Trust yourself is another strong factor that is needed for the creation of positive classroom community. Either the authority or the member if they have trust in themselves than it will help to create the positive classroom community. In the case of the school, the teachers need to provide the valid and fair chance for each student to speak up their point. The similarity can be implemented in any other organisational group. This will help the administration to build up the proper relationship with its members to create the positive classroom community.

Creating Code of conduct for the classroom

The code of conduct is the next best respective term that is needed to be maintained by the authorities of the administrations. Under the code of conduct, the authorities need to write up all their legal and ethical terms and policies that would be followed by the organisation or the administration. In case of any kind of administration, the code of conduct is needed to create at all, in which the authorities of the administrations will print the positive and the negative fact about their administrative functions. Even the code of conduct is the way to create a trust factor between the members of the community and the authority of the administrations. The code of conduct also helps to create the positive flow of communication in the workplace, as it contains all those information that is needed by the members of the community.

The code of conduct of the administration is needed for creating the positive classroom community for the purpose of the concept is to create a positive cultural working environment. The code of conduct is helpful in the formation of the coordinated working environment that is needed to perform well to achieve the organisational goals and objectives. In any kind of organisation, either at school or an organisation, in both cases, the code of conduct would play the similar role in the workplace. From the friendly working area perspective, the condition of the working area should be cleared and fair for the workers or the members of the community and for that, the code of conduct is being prepared by the administration in order to protect their interest.

The discussion has perceived that every kind of classrooms is different from each other. The nature and the culture of the classroom decide the factors that are needed to create the positive classroom community. As it has been mentioned that good relationship, communication channel, trust factor and the code of conducts are the respective factors are highly needed for creating the positive classroom community. This has conceived that an administrator needs to focus on the various aspects that will help to create the positive classroom community.

The need for the positive classroom community is arising at the workplace for achieving the academic goals and objectives.

What will happen in UK education in 2017?

UK education sector is the model for many countries. It is a vast and diverse sector with a lot of institutions. The organisations are heterogeneous and differ in their size, infrastructure, focus, interest and strengths. The curriculum of the UK education is not same at the national level for schools and universities. However, the education system is based on the principle of providing quality of education. Certain standards are prescribed required to be attained that is some degree of achievement that a student needs to gain to reach a higher level. The UK education institutions are autonomous but are funded by individual bodies. These bodies have to ensure that quality education is provided.

The UK education system involves high competition and is characterised by the set pattern of exams. Students need to achieve a certain score to be awarded for next level. The level of exams in UK schools is becoming harder day by day, and it requires students to achieve higher grades. This has to lead to various kinds of health issues in the teenagers. The students are suffering from mental disorder and depression. This has created a very serious problem as the schools and universities in the UK are becoming difficult for the students day by day. To complete their mission of providing quality education schools are becoming intense for the teenagers. Also, teachers in schools are very much restricted and are forced to follow set guidelines. They are compelled to follow the strong curriculum which is of no use for children in future.

With the innovation and technological change, automation is taking the place of the requirement of human beings in each process. Machines will do a lot of work in future for which universities prepare their students. Also in the world of internet, students go online and study. They prefer to gain expert knowledge by listening to lectures online to gain more information that their teachers are not providing. Also, the jobs of the students are now becoming on a stake. Moreover, the UK education sector has approx 13 percent of the international market, and it contributes about 3 percent to the gross domestic product of the country. It is becoming essential for the schools and universities to change the education pattern so that their existence does not fade.

The world now is imposed by its fourth industrial revolution that is digitisation. The digital age is propelling the education sector to be more innovative with the use of Hi-tech technology. With the evolution of the educational landscape, intuitions need to do things in a way that is efficient and connected. Consolidation of campuses, colleges and classrooms are required to serve larger audiences which will help in coping up with success.

Predictions have been made that in 2017, institutions have to use hybrid IT technology for data storage and management. By doing this schools will be able to manage the process and can ensure compliance with technology will ensure the security of the data. A holistic security education will be emphasised as due to digitalisation access to the internet will be increased. It will become essential for the schools to provide end to end security to the IT infrastructure. It is also necessary that safety of students be taken into consideration and protection is done from many cyber attacks and human error breaches. Schools compulsory needs to follow the guidelines issued by the government to safeguard the children. In 2017, as the education of a student is no longer will be in the four walls of the classroom the curriculum will revolve around the media, digitalisation and cyber crime.

Also, it has been identified that the UK education needs a shift from basic subjects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). It is becoming important to adopt cyber learning skills to compete globally. In the UK it has been seen that students lack interest in learning the basic subjects (STEM). This has lead to decrease in the talent of the STEM skills. Also, the topics in which students are interested there is the lack of the desperate talent who will teach the subjects of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence. On the part of UK education system, it is becoming very important that it invest in teachers who are talented, skilled and expert. This will encourage and help the students in learning the new subjects in which they are interested.

In 2017 the concept of immersive learning is taken into consideration which will help technology in becoming the tool for learning. 3D printers, Google cardboards will be introduced by the schools for every student which will assist in making the educational environment more interactive. The four-walled classrooms will be no more in the education industry in 2017.

UK government is also making lots of reforms which will help in changing and supporting the Education system. It is making a broad range of reforms relating to fees, quality and administration. Also, the focus is on primary provisions for Teaching Excellence that will aim at increasing the funds for investment in skilled teachers and introducing reputational and financial incentives schemes. The reform packages will help in ensuring quality education with increasing level of employment opportunities for the graduates.

As education industry is emerging as the new frontier, institutions need to realise that by just buying the technology is not enough. It is essential that the transformation is very well implemented which will help in reaping the results from digitalisation. For successful education system, it is necessary that change is recognised on time which will contribute to support the future generation to learn and lead.

Private tuition market in the UK

Private tuition is known as the hidden secret of British education and is known as shadow education in the UK. They have been precursor and alternative to the schooling and were established for teaching children of wealthy families. It is defined as academic teaching outside of state provision for which tutor is paid in salary usually by tutee’s parents. The tutee’s education usually takes place at their home, where tutor assists their student in improving their knowledge related to the respective subject or for other competitive exams. It has largely remained in the shadow of private schools and home schools which were considered best for British students. Estimates have suggested that the industry is worth several billion pounds, but it lacks regulation as it is an unregulated industry and much of tutoring is informal. Therefore it is difficult to get an accurate picture of the UK market of private tuition.

A survey conducted by UK government found that tuition industry is generally a small scale industry. However, contrary to the belief, private tuition market is expanding and has changed as per changing economic factors and has become increasingly structured and commercialised. It has now been rendering teaching services to millions of students throughout in the UK. Many surveys have found that most of the tutors are university students who are seeking additional income by teaching children at the secondary level. Another group of tutor includes state-employed teachers, as well as, retired teachers from their respected government school. They work either individually or through an agency.

Private tutoring provides an opportunity for parents to help their children to get better academic success. Usually, it is associated with one on one instruction, but in recent years, Small-group and large-group instruction methods and online type of private tutoring have also come into existence. Small-group class tuition ranges from 3 students per tutor, whereas large-group class tuition has >=10 students per tutor. According to a recent survey, half of the private tutoring in the UK is conducted through one on one instruction, which is 78% followed by small-group class tuition which occupies 12% of private tuition. In a recent survey, it was found that average cost of one to one tutoring in a subject like maths is £21 per hour and in English is £24 per hour. The average cost of online tutoring was found to be £32 per hour. The majority of tuition arranged by private agencies takes place in student’s home and normally lasts for one hour.

In recent years and with the advancement of internet, the online internet is gaining popularity. In the UK, online tuition is conducted majorly through either Skype or MSN messenger. Tutors who teach online teach mainly at the secondary level with maths and science being dominant subjects. Other subjects which are taught online are English, humanities, arts and foreign languages. Furthermore, greater numbers of tutors in the UK are in favour of giving online tuition as there is increasing trend of income generated through teaching online as most of the students have access to the internet and are capable enough to get coaching online instead of going to tuition class for their studies. Moreover, it is convenient for tutors also to teach online as it saves their cost and time incurred in travelling. In addition to this, parents of students also are in favour of online tutoring because of convenience and lack of tutors in their local areas.

As private tuition is an unregulated industry, tuition agencies are bracing themselves to change by going online. They have tried to bridge the gap between advantaged and disadvantaged students by providing coaching to later one at nominal fee online. So to evaluate private tuition agencies in the UK, some models were developed. The first model developed is Tutor Hunt which was founded in 2005 with the objective of providing affordable tuition to everyone in the UK.  It has over 50,000 tutors. It is a web-based service which allows tutees to directly access to tutors which they feel is most suitable to them. It charges tutees one off fees which is nominally £19.99. Tutor Hunt has created a foundation, which uses some of the profits made through the website to sponsor various school clubs, programmes and events. It ensures that private tuition does not become reserved for the elite group but is readily available for needy students and its benefit is spread as far as possible.

Another is Tutorfair which was founded in 2012 as a marketplace to put tutors in contact with potential tutees. Currently, Tutorfair has over 30,000 tutors on its database, with about 8,500 fully registered. Through Tutorfair’s web platform, tutees contact tutors with no charge and help them to locate an appropriate local tutor. Since its inception, thousands of tutees have found tutors through this organisation. It is mostly funded directly by sales made on Tutorfair website. An optional 5% price is paid by the customer who undertakes and coordinates tuition programmes in London’s under- privileged students in lieu of providing free tuition for one of their children. This free tutoring covers preparations for 11+ exams, A-level and university preparations. Moreover, it provides facilities for students from economically low background to get good tutors for their studies.

Thus, although private tuition is a shadow education in the UK, yet it is gaining popularity in the country. If effectively implemented, it has the potential to reinforce an education system which would be easily available for each and every student from different backgrounds. Public sponsored education policies fell short of meeting expectations of parents of the students. In this case, a private tuition is a viable option as it would provide an option to parents to fulfil their goal of increasing academic performance of their children. With the adaptation of innovative ideas using online method of tutoring, it has created for itself an opportunity to grow into a mature and stable market generation huge amount of profit.

How to understand math formulas?

Mathematical formulas are the core constituents of the subjective application of Mathematics for various problem-solving processes. The formulas which exist in the complete subjective envelopment of Mathematics are numerous. The reason behind this can be identified as the capability of the process of calculation, associated with that of Pure and Applied Mathematics to completely relate to every logical progression process where any step by step calculative measure could be applied to achieve the necessary and intended solution finally. But such equations and formulas contained in Mathematics are often more than complicated to be understood since they need to be first comprehended and then to be memorised for future application. This poses unique and significant problems since remembering thousands of formulas relating to various Mathematical disciplines is mentally rigorous.

As difficult as learning of foreign languages
If the native speakers of English suddenly encounter the necessity to read Chinese or Japanese scripts, the measure of difficulty that would be inherent in such endeavours would be palpable. One would hardly have the capacity to understand any of the characters of such linguistics at all. Such requirements would entail learning the new symbols, the new characters of the words and the grammatical intricacies associated with such languages such as the Chinese and the Japanese. One only could have a reasonable understanding of learning these.

Similarly, for students who had not been initiated to the complications of Mathematical formulas, the challenges associated with learning and understanding the different and widely divergent equations and applications, can and do seem to be considerable in nature. For the students of standards which are consigned to the primary, the necessities regarding learning of Mathematics involve identification of new symbols such as π, θ, Σ, Ω and others, new words such as the terminologies of derivatives, functions, product, summation, quadratic equations, algorithms, permutation, combination, probability, quadruples, cuboids, hemispheres, rostrums and many others. The students have to learn the basics and the intricacies associated with those of the logical progressions and consistent calculations as well.

Learning the vocabulary first
Learning the subject of Mathematics has thus presented itself to be a problematic undertaking for a long time. In this respect, the grammatical terminologies associated with that of the variegated fields and disciplines of Mathematics have to be memorised and familiarised with precision and diligence. This involves taking into account the factors which define the progression process of any Mathematical solution in step by step manner. The most effort has to be invested in the mastering of the basics thoroughly.

Advanced familiarisation with of the formulas
Prior familiarisation with the topics associated with the Mathematical curriculum is a beneficial process of managing to learn the Mathematical formulas properly. The initial process does not demand a beginner to be able to memorise the formulas completely. This is not possible to be achieved at the first attempt. Instead, one particular method of gradual familiarisation with that of the formulas could be obtained through first observing the formula and then perusing through it carefully. This brings about some measures of familiarity with the content that is represented by such Mathematical formulas. This becomes helpful when the formula gets to be taught in the classrooms or in the coaching centres. The prior familiarity paves the way then, for prompt and accurate understanding of the intricacies of the Mathematical knowledge associated with the formulas. This also assists in memorization of the formulas completely.

Formulas become less problematic to understand when charts of them are kept
Any form of learning is best achieved through repetition of the subject matter. It is not possible to only learn the Mathematical formulas while reading through the textbooks in the classroom. To understand the formulas better, one needs to write them down first in a systemic manner, and this process has to be repeated many a time during the day to keep up the process of continuously exposing oneself to the Mathematical formulas to embed the formulas in one’s memory.

Focus on the context and conditions of the formulas
One of the most common errors which the students of Mathematics exhibit are writing down the quadratic formula as [-b+/-(√b2 – 4ac)] ÷ 2a. This is only partially correct since the major chunk of the formula remains missing, and a lot of information could not be represented as well. The missing sections are vital in imparting the necessary understanding of the entire formula on the students. The context and the conditions become lost. For this reason, to have the quadratic equation written perfectly, the students need to learn and provide all the associated information as well. For instance, while writing the formula for quadratic equation, the equation ax2+bx+c=0 has to precede the entire formulation of the equation since the value of the x is provided by x=[-b+/-(√b2 – 4ac)] ÷ 2a. This whole equation is nothing but the solution of the larger problem of determination of the value of factor x.

Most of the students do not consider the factor of ‘x’ and outright provide the formula in the written manner without having any perspective of what the context of this method could be. It is therefore of paramount significance that the students have to learn and understand the exact magnitude of every Mathematical formula before putting it in use.

Though represented in various forms, the meanings of the Mathematical formulas remain the same
The factor often hampers the process of development of an understanding of Mathematical formulas that Mathematical equations are represented in various differentiated manners. This often leads to either confusion or lack of misrecognition and even panic, for students who are afraid of Mathematics. For instance, the representation of the fraction of “half” could be highlighted as 1/2 in a diagonal arrangement or ½ in a vertical configuration which relates closely with the general applied a form of a fraction. In case of a ratio, the value of ‘half’ could be represented yet in another manner which is 1.1. The failure or success of recognition of such different forms of the same Mathematical numeric value highlights the fact of the comprehensive capabilities of the student regarding Mathematical formula understanding. The measure of familiarity is vital in case of completely avoiding such impediments.

Maintenance of the necessary Mathematical symbols
The learning and memorization, understanding and evaluation of the entire range of Mathematical formulas could be greatly assisted by the utilisation of maintaining an accurate list of various symbols which are incorporated in case of performing various Mathematical solutions. For instance, ∑ could be identified and recorded as the sum of different figures and values whereas ∫ denotes the process where the integration of widely divergent values could be achieved. Similarly, Φ is known as the capital Phi through its Greek origin which has a particular value representation in the Trigonometric formulas. The symbol of α denotes the relationship between two values which operate in tandem, either in increment or while in decreasing manner.

The learning, remembrance and practice of all these different symbols and values associated with the multitude of Mathematical formulas are critical in understanding and having a clear perspective about the formulas and equations related to the subject of Mathematics.

Seven of the Most Useful Languages to Learn

There is a saying by Nelson Mandela, a former South African legend on the necessity of learning any language. He says-“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.” Being able to speak in more than one foreign language enhance a person’s professional skills. Now with the increase in the use of the internet, expansion of the global market and increasing travel opportunities, a person is successful only if he can communicate in a foreign land in their native language. There are many important reasons which would benefit a person in getting success in his/her life by learning a new language. A businessman might be able to expand his business abroad by learning a new language. A person working in an international company may want to learn the language to communicate with his colleagues and position himself for promotion. A travel loving person might learn a new language to explore more about the foreign culture.

English has established itself as a lingua-franca which is spoken globally. Apart from English, there are many languages which are important for communication in certain areas like travel and international businesses. There are seven languages which are important to learn for increasing efficiency in communication skills. They were decided on the basis of relevance in economy and number of speakers throughout the world.

1. Spanish

Spanish is second most spoken language after English in the world. It is spoken in Spain, Latin America, some Central African countries and by Spanish Diasporas in the USA. It is spoken by over 400 million people across the world in 44 countries spanning over 4 continents. Spanish is the easiest language to learn as it is a phonetic language, which means that its words are spoken as they are written. Moreover, learning Spanish has huge financial benefits for doing business and getting a job especially in both Europe and USA, where it is most widely spoken the language after English.

2. French

French is another language with international domination. It is the official language of France, West, Central and East Africa, Pacific Island countries and also in some states of Canada and USA and is spoken by 29 million people worldwide. It is second most learned language after English. French dominates in telecommunications, energy production, pharmaceuticals, aeronautics, nuclear energy and so on. Furthermore, it is also official language many international offices like UN, NATO and Red Cross. A person with fluency in French can land himself in administrative, consultant and non-profit jobs.

3. German

Germany is a vibrant and most common language which is spoken by 90 million people. It is the official language of Germany and Austria and spoken widely across various regions of central and northern Europe. Germany is an economic powerhouse on the world stage. Many international companies related to automobiles, banking like BOSCH, BMW, Deutsche Bank, etc. are German companies. Germany companies are operating all over the world and are known for quality, intelligence and craftsmanship. Anyone interested in doing business with German people has to first learn their language.

4. Japanese

Japanese is native to Japan and is spoken by 122 million peoples. The Japanese economy is one of the strongest in the world. They dominate automobile, financial and communication sectors. Japan is the third biggest producer of the automobile and is leading power in mobile technology. Many Japanese companies like Honda, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Softbank, Sony, Panasonic, etc. dominate whole over the world. Now with increasing trade in Pacific Rim and Asia and strong economic ties with Japan with countries like USA and India has made learning Japanese a valuable and financial option.

5. Mandarin

It is the official language of the Republic of China and is largest spoken language across the world with 845 million as native speakers. It is one of the official languages of UN. It is relatively difficult to learn and write. It has the largest population with the world’s greatest and most powerful economy. Learning Mandarin is useful especially in diplomatic and military professionals in case of handling China. Moreover, it is one of the important languages in business industry as it gives an opportunity to trade with a billion people across the globe. Employment prospects for persons with fluency in Chinese are on the rise as teachers and translators for IT, pharmacy and chemical companies. Moreover, Chinese is also in demand for movie titles in Chinese film industry and for scientific research projects across various universities in China, as well as, in the world. A person with the knowledge of Chinese language would land himself in Jobs like International business, tourism and hospitality industry, diplomatic services, teaching and translation and interpretation across various MNC’s located across the world.

6. Portuguese

Portuguese is fifth most widely spoken language across the world which is spoken in Portugal, Brazil and some former Portuguese African colonies like Angola with native speakers of about 21.8 million people. Learning Portuguese has a major prospect in logistic, business and agriculture especially in Brazil, which is an emerging economy. As most of the Portuguese Africa has an abundance of natural resources, therefore learning it would be beneficial in minerals, iron and steel, coffee industries.

7. Arabic

Arabic is third most common and eighth most spoken language spoken by 300 million people spread throughout 57 countries of West Asia and North Africa. It is also one of the official languages of UN. Arabian countries are rich in petroleum and wealthiest region of the world with $600 billion of GDP and so learning Arabic provides a great scope in petrochemical industries located throughout the Arabian nations. Moreover, this language also provides great opportunities in tourism, journalism, military and government jobs.

Learn to play the bass guitar for beginners

A bass guitar is also called an electric guitar that has four to six strings. It has a longer neck and scale length. In the decade of 50s, the first bass guitar was developed by Leo Fender. The most basic difference between the bass guitar and the simple guitar is that the bass guitar plays notes an octave lower than the normal guitar. The bass guitars have mainly four strings along with being electric. Each of the chords is equidistance from each other that makes it all the more symmetric information.

Most of the bands in the present scenario use bass guitars for adding value to their band. As the nodes played by a bass guitar are very subtle, they are responsible for maintaining a perfect balance and harmony among various instrument players. So, if you want to learn bass guitar, here are a few tips for you:

Learn about the anatomy of bass guitar

Before beginning to play or hold a bass guitar you must be aware of the various parts of the guitar. This step is the first and foremost section in learning to play the guitar because without knowing the parts of the guitar it would become difficult for you to play or even hold it properly. There are 18 parts in the bass guitar that are as follows from top to bottom. Headstock, tuning machines, string tree, nut, neck, freeboard, frets, fret markers, cutaway, bout, pickguard, volume knob, tone knob, output jack, pickup, bridge, saddle and strap button are the parts of the bass guitar. One must know all the parts along with their uses before starting to learn to play. This would enable you to play in a better way and have a better grip on the guitar.

Find out your motive to learn

There are various reasons as to why different people learn to play the guitar. There are people who have a passion for playing and learning guitar. However, it is not necessary that a person learning guitar will always play in a band and make a career out of it. The aim for which you want to learn guitar would decide the type of training you would require. It means that to make a career by learning guitar, you would be required to take professional training. While on the other hand if you are learning to fulfil your passion, normal training would do as well. Hence, it is very necessary to clear out the motive behind receiving training.

Amount of time you can spare

For learning anything, one needs to devote time. Once, you have decided the reason why you want to learn bass guitar; then it is easy deciding the time you need to give to the practice sessions. The practising and learning sessions can be chosen depending on the capacity of the person. It means that if a person has good grasping power, then he/she needs to devote less time to learning and more in practice. Whereas, for the person who requires more time in learning and also who wants to become a professional bass guitarist then mere and more practice is required. As more and more practice leads to perfection, continuous and regular practice sessions would reap good rewards for you.

Learn the position of the guitar

The first step in learning to play the guitar after understanding about the different parts of the guitar is the way in which it is to be held. The bass guitar is very different from the regular one and needs to be properly held maintaining proper distance from the body so that the hand gets enough space to play. As the guitar has four chords E, A, D, G in a descending order it should be properly held as per the strings. The string playing the thickest node is placed on the top and hence froths. This should be known by the guitarist else it would create a problem in holding the guitar.

Learn simple things first

For the beginner, it is important to note that if you try to move to the tough nodes and songs all of a sudden, then it will become difficult for you to learn. Everything new requires patience and practice and thus shifting directly to the advanced level there might be many possible consequences leading to a loss of interest for learning. As a child first learns to crawl, then stand and walk before finally running, a guitarist must also learn first to play single lines then songs. You must perfect your basics before moving onto the next level. As the beginners cannot directly start playing the complicated music, various levels have been decided. For example, beginners, intermediate and then finally advance are the three levels of learning bass guitar. Each learner has to pass the three levels and is allowed to move to the next level on if he/she completes the previous level.

Do not become a simple mimicker

It is true that as a beginner you will have to play and learn the music or song already composed. However, eventually, as you move towards perfecting the beginner’s level then you must start composing some music of your own. This would let you explore more and more along with motivating you to practice. Otherwise, if you just keep on playing the same repetitive songs, then the scope of your learning would narrow down to the same nodes being played again and again. This would also retain you from moving onto the next level of learning. In order to maintain a progressive track record innovation would the best option.

In the end, it is important to note that the people who want to master the art of playing the guitar should follow a proper schedule and stepwise learning process. Learning to play the guitar is not as easy as it is presumed to be, but if dedication and proper training go hand in hand, then it is rather not difficult as well. It is often said that take care of small things big things will fall into place. Thus, if you pay attention to the minute details of learning success is on its way coming straight to you.
