Chris S. says, "I am an older guy who has actually been playing guitar since my teens. But like many, I didn't play much at all throughout most of my life. Got back into it a few years ago, and decided to get serious about upgrading my skills. Sort of an old dog learning some new tricks. Randy is a great teacher! He is patient and perceptive. He doesn't just regurgitate a formulaic set of lessons, but he really looked at the skills I already had, then tailored his instruction to build on that. He showed me several techniques that were superior to what I had been doing, and designed a practice regimen that targets my particular goals. I'm already playing MUCH better, and it's only been four weeks. And I feel like there is great potential progress in my future. Randy Garcia is an excellent choice if you want guitar instruction!"

Hi, my name is Lorenzo Breda and I am a professional guitarist and media composer.

Denise R. says, "Joe has worked with my daughter for sometime and she is now playing 2 instruments (piano and guitar). He has taught my daughter the fundamental concepts of music theory which is very vital. This allows the students to learn the musical grammar to be able to communicate musical ideas effectively. Joe is positive, patient and encouraging, but Joe will call you out when you don’t practice, which in my book is great because my daughter knows she needs to be ready when meeting with Joe. He is also flexible to work around our schedules when possible. He is truly amazing music instructor. This picture shows one of her very first practices." 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?

Hes very knowledgeable in all genres and knows how to start you off as a new student or even a seasoned player. I love that i can come in and choose whatever genre i want to learn and come out with scales and exercises to make me such a better player. Patient and very friendly. No teacher like him. Truly the best! Thank you!!

Todd's extensive knowledge and genuine passion for music make him an outstanding teacher! I really appreciate his ability to make piano lessons both enjoyable and effective. My son always came home from lessons excited to show me what he’d learned that day- which is really saying something! Todd's kind nature and patience creates a warm, welcoming learning environment that puts both kids (and parents!) at ease. If you're searching for a piano teacher who can inspire and educate your child, while keeping things fun and engaging, Todd is the perfect choice!
