Sayaka A. says, "I really appreciated his patience and willingness to work with me on things that I struggled with. He took his time to explain things that I didn't understand repeatedly and encouraged me until I was able to reach my goals. I'm a singer songwriter so I wanted to learn chords and strumming patterns and he taught me exactly that, but he also taught me so much about the instrument and gave me many useful techniques. I now feel more confident playing thanks to him. I highly recommend Niccolò, he has a very wide range of knowledge and is truly passionate about his job. " Read more

  • Comprehensive understanding of tuning your guitar to the perfect pitch
  • Practicing scales to enhance your musical knowledge and versatility

Are online adult guitar lessons good?

Online adult guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 hourly and are good for providing a flexible and accessible learning avenue for adults, especially those situated in remote areas. To fully benefit from this digital classroom, you'll need a reliable high-speed Internet connection and a webcam complemented with a high-quality microphone.

Before booking a teacher, you should:

  • Compare the prices from at least 3 teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Check out the reviews about them on Google and the Lessons website.
  • Ask for references from other students they've taught.
  • Consult with other adult learners about their experience with the teacher.
  • Get a written agreement and schedule before the first lesson.
  • Initially pay for a few sessions to ascertain the teacher's compatibility before booking a full month.

To choose a guitar teacher who fits your learning style, consider asking:

  • Did you pursue formal education in music, and what degrees do you hold?
  • How long have you been teaching guitar to adults?
  • Is it possible to try a lesson for free to see if your style resonates with me?
  • What kind of guitar would be suitable for me to buy?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much time should I devote to practicing?
  • What educational resources or books should I buy to aid my learning?
  • Which genres of guitar music are you best at?
  • Can you adjust your teaching style if I find a concept challenging to grasp?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long is each session?
  • Can I receive a copy of our lesson schedule and terms?
  • What is your policy regarding class cancellations or rescheduling?
  • Am I allowed to suggest songs that I am particularly interested in learning?

We've been working with Ben for nearly 3 years and my kids are excited every week to practice and attend lessons! He's innovative, engaged, and endlessly patient, which makes each week an adventure. He is extremely organized and his own talent allows him to use both traditional materials and original adaptations for specific skill levels and different instruments. He truly listens and modifies each individual's curriculum to their ability and interest--it's simply amazing!! I cannot say enough positive things about Ben--I am so thankful to have found him and to witness the growth in my kiddos both as musicians and creative thinkers.
