Kevy Nova Guitar/Bass/Ukulele Live Video Lessons

My teaching approach: When I started taking lessons at the age of 9, my teachers only wanted to teach me songs and music that THEY liked and I almost quit because of it. As a result, I am dedicated to teaching my students the music that THEY love and I use that music to help them understand the fundamentals of music theory and guitar technique. My belief is that music has to be fun as well as educational. I am currently offering online lessons only. You can learn from the comfort of your own home with one-on-one live video lessons!

I am a great learner. I believe I am a great teacher. I had to do it on my own and I would love to teach beginner level students how to play the guitar in ways it makes sense for them. Centuries ago Shakespeare once wrote "if music be the food of love, play on." This is how I feel about music and especially playing the guitar. Once you understand the basics of guitar playing, it is easy to accelerate to intermediate level. And you will absolutely love guitar playing and making music. I believe I can teach you the tricks to get over the entry level humps. ... View Profile

I am able to comfortably work with students of any age and I'm comfortable teaching any style of music. I also know how to mix up my lessons with students by having them playing a song that they're working on, having them do music theory games, practicing with flashcards, and answering whatever questions they have. It's always been a passion to help my students progress in their musical journey.  As a bonus, I am also able to play any song whether by sheet music or by listening to it.  I have over 6 years of experience in teaching individual music lessons, and have been playing all my life. As another bonus, I tune pianos.  ... 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.
