Haley P. says, "Sandro is a great teacher! I had been wanting to learn electric guitar, but at 22 years old, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to pick it up as well as someone who started earlier. However, Sandro's lessons have encouraged me tremendously. He is incredibly motivating and makes every lesson feel exciting and rewarding! He is very detailed when it comes to technique yet is always patient and accomodating to my abilities. Overall, I feel just as great about guitar as I did when I first started (or maybe even more!) and I would definitely have to credit Sandro's teaching!" Read more

Your electric guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do electric guitar lessons cost near me?

Electric guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session with lengths of 30 to 60 minutes each. Private tuition costs $45 to $70 per hour, while group sessions are more wallet-friendly at $25 to $35 per class.

  • For ongoing classes, you'll pay $170 to $315 per month with the prepaid discount.
  • Online lessons cost anywhere from $35 to $55 per hour and let you jam with a teacher from the comfort of your own home.

Are electric guitar lessons worth it?

Electric guitar lessons are worth it if you want to learn more at a faster pace, develop a better technique, and get customized instructions to improve your style. Only an experienced electric guitar player can understand how to help you improve, so don't settle for a general guitar instructor.

What age is good to start electric guitar lessons?

A good age for kids to start electric guitar lessons is from 6 to 10 years old. Another indication they're ready to learn is whenever they're physically able to hold the guitar and have the hand strength to press the strings.

Adults of all ages can also start electric guitar lessons at any time. With the right guidance and consistent practice, anyone can master the electric guitar.

How many lessons does it take to learn electric guitar?

The number of lessons it takes you to learn electric guitar depends on your goals and how much time you dedicate to practicing those epic solos. Playing a simple tune might take 2 to 6 months of weekly classes.

If you're aiming to rock out like a pro, expect a time investment of 4 to 10 years.

Are acoustic and electric guitar lessons the same?

Acoustic and electric guitar lessons aren't the same because these are two entirely different instruments with unique equipment features.

Learning to play electric guitar requires:

  • Knowing how to use an amplifier and pedals that create sound effects
  • Understanding how to adjust the speaker connection
  • Knowledge of genres like rock, metal, blues, and jazz
  • Special techniques like power chords, palm muting, and string bending

Learning to play an acoustic guitar means you focus on classical, folk, country, pop, or blues music. A pick is optional in acoustic lessons, and you don't need amplifiers or cables. Acoustic teachers also place more emphasis on fingerpicking patterns.

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

You can find the best electric guitar lessons nearby to suit your needs by checking out our teacher listings her on the Lessons website. Your local music stores are also great places to start when scouting for the best guitar instructors.

Before making a decision, you should:

  • Compare prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Check out their reviews on Google and Lessons.
  • Request for a references list of past students to verify their track record.
  • Ask for opinions from other parents on what their kids think of the teacher.
  • Obtain a written schedule and contract before the first lesson.
  • Pay for a couple of sessions to see what you think before fully committing to a month's worth of lessons.

What questions do I ask when choosing an electric guitar teacher?

Ask potential electric guitar teacher these questions before hiring:

  • Did you study music in school, and what qualifications did you earn?
  • How long have you been teaching electric guitar?
  • Can I sample a lesson to gauge if your teaching style suits me?
  • What's the average age of your students?
  • What type of electric guitar would you recommend for me?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice should I put in?
  • What resources or books would you recommend for learning electric guitar?
  • Can you adapt your teaching methodology if I'm struggling with a concept?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long does each session last?
  • Could I get a copy of our timetable and contract terms?
  • What's your policy regarding missed classes due to unforeseen circumstances?
  • Can I choose some songs that I'd love to learn?

I hired Hector to teach a small group of adults beginning ukelele. He was so great! Super flexible and very intuitive style of teaching. He explained things in a very simple, and easy to understand way and the entire group really enjoyed his lesson! Will hire again : )

I have been taking guitar lessons from Sandro Eristavi for 3 months now. I couldn't be happier about my progress and my teacher. Sandro is a very professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful instructor with a gift for teaching. He's patient and creative in his approach. His teaching method is flexible and intuitive, and gives quick and solid results - within only 3 months (that's about 12 lessons) I progressed from being barely able to play blues to the level where I am now able to carry a simple guitar part (both rhythm and solo) through a song while jamming with other musicians. Being passionate about guitar and musical performance in general, Sandro goes beyond the necessary minimum instruction and is always ready to provide helpful tips on many related subjects - from the choice of gear, strings, what tone to use for different types of songs to the very valuable tips on stage performance and the blues scene etiquette in general. Another great thing about Sandro - he is an accomplished songwriter, and that gives his instruction an additional perspective, very helpful for me personally as an aspiring songwriter. Big thanks for connecting me with a great teacher!

When I was younger, I studied with some of the most prominent classical guitar teachers in the Los Angeles area. After a long hiatus from music, I resumed studying classical guitar with Timur and indeed have done so for some years now. I have definitely improved with Timur! In what way? He made me more aware of musicality, voices and rhythm. He teaches in a classical way and does not rely upon gimmicks that many less experienced, and probably less able, instructors sometimes favor. His vast knowledge of music in general enriches every session I have with him. In my opinion, he has much to offer the beginning, intermediate and advanced guitar student."
