Ilene L. says, "Coast Music Conservatory is simply the best!! If you want your son or daughter to learn from some amazingly, talented professional musicians, then you need to come here! The staff and teachers are beyond amazing. They are just fantastic and have sparked my daughter's love for music. Coast Music has an incredible team of professional industry teachers who give private lessons in voice, piano, guitar, bass, drums, songwriting, music theory, and much more! The teachers know how to engage their students and spark new musical interests in many genres of music. In fact, they even have band classes for your budding musician to play some cool rock and roll tunes. My daughter has been going to Coast Music since was five and she is now 14. She has taken advantage of all the awesome opportunities they have to offer and now knows she wants to be a musician when she grows up. To her, Coast Music is like home away from home. My daughter simply loves it there! Your child will too! Hands down it is the best music school in the South Bay and the hidden gem of musical instruction in Hermosa Beach. I highly recommend you call and check them out. You will definitely not be disappointed! We love Coast Music Conservatory!!" Read more

Sayaka A. says, "I really appreciated his patience and willingness to work with me on things that I struggled with. He took his time to explain things that I didn't understand repeatedly and encouraged me until I was able to reach my goals. I'm a singer songwriter so I wanted to learn chords and strumming patterns and he taught me exactly that, but he also taught me so much about the instrument and gave me many useful techniques. I now feel more confident playing thanks to him. I highly recommend Niccolò, he has a very wide range of knowledge and is truly passionate about his job. " Read more

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?
