As a composer of music, I teach with the goal of enabling a student to express, learning to feel rhythm and sing pitch, not only to read music, but also to become inventive.  To invent, you need a good foundation of playing technique and a level of comfort with the instrument.  I utilize basic classical technique when teaching PIANO AND GUITAR, yet I encourage playing of popular as well as classical songs. I teach piano to 5 year olds and older, and guitar to children entering 3rd grade and older.  I teach acoustic guitar; note reading and playing, quickly learning and using simple chords to play known songs, often of the stud ...

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I have been studying music since the age of 9 years. I began learning to play the flute through the public school music program. I continued playing in school bands and in 1968 I wanted to learn to play the guitar, like the Beatles! In high school I taught myself to play classical guitar by playing through some music books with guitar fingerings. When I was 16 years old I became interested in learning to play the piano and began with chords on the left hand and simple melodies with the right one. My senior ... View Profile

With a Masters degree in Classical Guitar Performance from Radford University, and a rich background in teaching and performing, I offer lessons in guitar, bass guitar, ukelele, music theory and songwriting. The big perk about my lessons is that I am willing to travel to you at no additional cost and also offer online lessons via skype. Having been self-taught initially, and going mainly by ear, I am capable of teaching students both the academic aspects of playing an instrument, and the intuitive aspects that only come from learning by ear and jamming with other people. I specialize in teaching classical fingerstyle and rock. I can also teac ... View Profile

Frequently asked questions

How much do guitar lessons cost?

The average cost for guitar lessons is $40 per hour. Available for all ages and all skill levels of guitar playing, the pricing of individual or group guitar lessons can start as low as $20/hour. Teachers charge based on their location, years of teaching, levels of knowledge and expertise, and travel time (if applicable). Lessons can last from half an hour to a full hour, and are priced accordingly.


How long does it take to learn guitar?

If you just want to learn a few chords to strum along to some songs, then learning to play the guitar really isn't that hard for most people. Many students are able to learn a few chords and get a decent strumming pattern going after a few weeks. If you've had prior experience playing an instrument, you can expect to pick it up after just a few lessons.


Should I take guitar lessons online or in person lessons?

Private in person guitar lessons with a skilled instructor that is focused on you, your interests, and your progress is the most sought after experience and hard to replicate online. Plus, you tend to learn faster in person. On the other hand, online guitar lessons are quickly becoming popular. The selection of teachers is not limited to those in your geographical area and you can communicate via video in real time with your teacher in the comfort of your home. When filling out your request on Lessons.com, we recommend you select both online and local options, then compare your options and see what works best for you.


How old should children be before starting guitar lessons?

A child as young as 4 can begin to learn if they are really motivated and have a patient, creative, and devoted teacher. However, we've found almost all kids under six are too young to benefit from formal guitar lessons, as they require dexterity and levels of concentration children their age can't provide. That being said, lessons do not need to be formal right off the bat, and can just provide a fun introduction. Also, your child may benefit from using a ukulele to start, as it's smaller and easier to learn, but very similar instrument.
