I am a guitar and ukelele teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area who has been teaching since 2016 incorporating rock, jazz, country and classical into my repertoire and teaching style. My approach for each student varies depending on what their goals are for the instrument and themselves. I like to get people playing as soon as I can, and add elements of music theory and musicality as well as technique and style based playing.

Joseph S. says, "I started studying classical guitar 3 years prior to starting with Stephan, and my progress had stagnated. From the start with Stephan, however, it was clear that each lesson and each assigned exercise and piece had a purpose. Stephan's feedback and instruction during the lessons is clear, patient and constructive. I feel like I'm back to making significant progress in the last several months since I started studying with Stephan! And, we have established goals, so I'm always looking forward to what I'll be able to play in both the near and long term. I have only the highest recommendation for Stephan!!" Read more

I play acoustic, electric, and bass guitar, but right now I've only got my acoustic, so I'm only giving Acoustic lessons. In my opinion, if you're a beginner it really is best to learn how to play an acoustic before you start playing an electric, for a number of reasons. I honestly think if you master the acoustic first, it will ultimately make you a stronger player. I pretty much teach beginner level guitar, but if you've been playing for a while and already know the basics and are just looking to take lessons so as to inspire you to practice more, that's cool too When the pandemic lifts we can meet in person, but for now I'm only giving re

Your classical guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do classical guitar lessons cost near me?

Most classical guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session for durations of 30 to 60 minutes. One-on-one lessons typically cost between $45 and $70 per hour, whereas group sessions are a more affordable option at $25 to $35 per class.

For those who prefer a digital classroom, online lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour. Monthly ongoing instruction costs $170 to $315 with a prepaid discount.

Why should I take classical guitar lessons?

You should take classical guitar lessons if you have an acoustic guitar and want to learn how to play classical concertos or Spanish-style music with fingerpicking.

Classical guitar lessons teach you how to:

  • Use nylon-string guitars and strum with the fingers instead of a pick
  • Develop your fingers to focus on complex fingerpicking techniques
  • Understand classical music theory and sight-reading

At what age should I start classical guitar lessons?

Children generally begin their classical guitar journey between the ages of 6 to 10, or as soon as they can hold the instrument well with enough hand strength to press the strings. Adults of all ages can master the instrument with the correct guidance and consistent practice.

How many classical guitar lessons do I need?

The number of weekly classical guitar lessons you need will depend on your personal goals and dedication to practice. A beginner might grasp a simple song within 2 to 6 months, but acquiring proficiency like a professional requires 4 to 10 years on average.

How do I find the best classical guitar lessons near me?

You can find proficient classical guitar tutors nearby by looking at the listings here on the Lessons platform. Sometimes teachers ara available through local music stores too.

Before hiring your tutor, always:

  • Obtain quotes from a minimum of 3 teachers and clarify what they teach.
  • Review feedback about them on Google and the Lessons site.
  • Request a reference list of their past students.
  • Ask fellow parents about their children's experiences with the tutor.
  • Secure a written agreement and schedule prior to the first session.
  • Make small initial payments to gauge the tutor's compatibility before committing to a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a classical guitar teacher?

Ask these pertinent questions to help you pick a classical guitar teacher:

  • Did you study music formally, and what qualifications do you have?
  • How many years have you been teaching classical guitar?
  • Could I have a trial lesson to see if your teaching method works for me?
  • What is the typical age range of your students?
  • Which model of acoustic guitar should I purchase?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice is required?
  • What type of strings are best for beginners?
  • Which books should I buy for learning classical guitar?
  • Can you accommodate different learning styles?
  • What essentials should I bring to class, and how long is each session?
  • Can I have a written copy of our class schedule?
  • What is your policy for missed classes?
  • Am I allowed to suggest songs that I would like to learn?

Sean is a very talented, nice, and patient guitar instructor. He worked around my interests in song playing (ie: wanting to play a particular song, finger style, electric vs acoustic, etc.) and loved discussing different songs/genres etc. Worked hard to make sure I had the right posture and avoided many of the bad habits that people end up forming. I wish I spent more time on the exercises he sent me home with. Would definitely recommend Sean! (He also has a cute cat <3)
