Hello I started playing at age 12 I'm 65, and have been a performing teacher for over 45 years. I became a luthier at Taylor Guitars here in San Diego in the early 70's. I play and teach finger style guitar and banjo. I have taught classes with up to 65 students. I have CD's and I have played with many artists I still perform as a solo player and song-writer. I will set your instrument up to play as well as it allows, and offer this service at a rate 50% below guitar shops. I love to watch my students reactions when they realize that like nature, playing any instrument involves repetitious patterns that our brain processes and stores for our...

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?

We were able to reconnect with Nolan once again post Covid and he remembered our children. Great person!

Our 10 y/o daughter has been playing violin for almost 3 yrs w/ Mr.Wilder. His experience, professionalism & friendly personality has helped her to become a proficient violinist & most importantly, she enjoys playing. He encourages her efforts & is supportive of her project song choices. We work together to come up w/ a practice schedule that works for us both. A little background: She chose to play the violin & this is her 1st & only instrument. Practicing diligently 30-40min daily is a must. Picking up the violin only for the weekly session will not advance your/the student. Playing the violin has definitely helped our daughter’s confidence as she’s challenged w/ learning new music & keeping up w/ what she’s already learned.

David was my teen daughter’s guitar teacher. He made lessons fun and easy! David is knowledgable, patient, relatable and so talented as a teacher and as a performer. David went out of his way too to provide performing opportunities for his students! My daughter enjoyed not only learning from David but also performing with him on occasion. I highly recommend David....he is a wonderful teacher and person!
