Michael G. says, "Prior to starting guitar lessons at Peoria Guitar School, I had received 2 years of instruction at Guitar Center. Not only did I get a full hour for the price of a 30-minute session at GC, but the instruction was also much more clear and easier to comprehend. I had struggled with music theory and instructor Tommy made it very easy to connect the dots that GC had failed to make. Now I have a firm understanding of the fretboard, modal patterns, chord progressions, and scales. I also fine-tuned my strumming and fretting techniques. Tommy has also been very flexible during the pandemic by offering video conference lessons and safety measures in the studio. A+++++" Read more

I have been playing guitar for 50 years. I learned to read music at an early age and have always had a passion for playing the guitar fingerstyle. Classical guitar techniques blended with travis-style picking and bottleneck slide. I can teach music theory as well as fretboard knowledge. I teach open tunings as well as standard tuning.

Your Guitar Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do guitar lessons cost near me?

Guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per lesson, depending on if they last 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. If it's a one-on-one lesson, it'll cost around $45 to $70 hourly. Learning guitar in a group is cheaper at $25 to $35 per session.

If you're taking lessons every month, it adds up to $170 to $315 with the typical prepaid discount.

Are guitar lessons worth it?

Guitar lessons are worth it since only a professional teacher giving you live feedback can guide you to learn faster. A good instructor helps you understand your mistakes and prevents you from developing bad habits.

Learning guitar by yourself takes a lot longer and won't prepare you as well to play in public.

At what age should I start guitar lessons?

Children can start guitar lessons from the ages of 6 to 10, or when they can comfortably hold the guitar and press the strings. Adults can start guitar lessons at any age, provided they practice regularly and patiently.

How many guitar lessons do I need?

The number of guitar lessons you need varies according to your goal and your practice routine. For many people, it typically takes about 2 to 6 months to play a simple tune. Mastering the guitar like a professional can take anywhere from 4 to 10 years.

What do you learn in guitar lessons?

In most guitar lessons, you can expect to learn:

  • How to correctly position your fingers to play chords
  • How to tune your guitar
  • How to play various scales
  • New techniques for plucking and strumming
  • How to read sheet music.

Are online guitar lessons good?

Online guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour and are good for getting personal instruction from skilled teachers worldwide. Take advantage of flexible scheduling and immediate feedback while learning new guitar-playing styles. Plus, you can easily record lessons to review their advice later.

How do I find the best guitar lessons near me?

In order to find the best guitar lessons for you, look through nearby teachers listed here on the Lessons website. You can also ask for teachers at local music stores or community colleges.

Before you hire a guitar teacher, make sure to:

  • Check out prices from at least 3 different teachers.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for a list of their current or previous students that you can talk to.
  • Talk to other parents about the teacher's reputation with their children.
  • Make sure you get a written agreement and schedule before your first lesson.
  • Avoid making a big payment upfront for a month of lessons until you're comfortable with the teacher.

What questions do I ask when choosing a guitar teacher?

To find the right guitar teacher, you can ask them these questions:

  • What kind of music degree do you have?
  • How many years of experience do you have in teaching guitar?
  • Can I have a free trial lesson to see if your teaching style helps me?
  • What is the average age of your students?
  • Will you assign me finger exercises as homework?
  • How often should I practice between lessons?
  • What textbooks do I need, and where can I buy used ones?
  • How many guitar-playing styles are you an expert in?
  • Can you modify your teaching style to suit my learning abilities?
  • What should I bring to our lessons, and how long is each one?
  • Can I get a copy of our schedule, agreement, and payment terms?
  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a class due to an emergency?
  • Can I choose some of my favorite songs to learn on the guitar?

Reviews for Glendale guitar teachers

Recent success stories from people in the Glendale area.
John L.
It is a great experience learning guitar from an experienced and knowledgeable guitarist. There are several impressive features in taking lessons from Tommy. He accurately evaluates where you are in your current knowledge and understanding and then starts from there. I have played off and on throughout my life. After retiring a went back to playing my Gibson Hummingbird and then realized I missed having an electric guitar. I got a Les Paul and really enjoyed it, but realized I was stuck in my limited knowledge and skill. Last fall I got a flyer regarding the Peoria Guitar School and decided I would finally do guitar lessons again. At 70 I started again with Tommy in January of this year. I have been able to get the basic theory, skill, and motivation to enjoy playing again. Tommy has a kind gentle teaching style that includes learning new material and developing your playing techniques that motivates you to want more and progress. I highly recommend him as a teacher/mentor regardless if you are a beginner or an advanced experienced guitarist. Thanks for your help Tommy.
