Leslie R. says, "Aaron is an amazing teacher. He made the impossible possible: He taught me not just how to play the instrument, but how to create music! Aaron’s relaxed, yet professional teaching style, friendly, positive demeanor, keen interest in what I want to learn, his enthusiasm and his unsurpassed knowledge of how to play the guitar make him a priceless teacher! His approach does not feel cookie-cutter or generic; I really feel like he’s tuned into what I want to do, which translates into learning a lot in a very short time. Mostly, he really makes playing the guitar fun, and that's why I'm here and why I highly recommend him." 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?

Reviews for Poway guitar teachers

Excellent instructor, great personality, makes learning guitar fun!

Aaron has a unique understanding of instruction how the style of teaching should conform to the individual student. Aaron is deeply concerned about the student's Goals and Expectations and creates a learning experience that is individualized for the student. Not the cookbook approach. His agenda is your agenda as he helps you to achieve your goals. I am retired and decided to try my hand again in trying to learn the guitar, after having tried several teachers in the past. Aaron imparts quality as he teaches the guitar skills and musical theory. I highly very happy with Aaron as my selection to be my Guitar Instructor and highly recommend him if you on the search.

I've only had a couple of lessons, but he is responsive to my needs and is encouraging when I'm successful at new things. He suggests good exercises based on my skill level. As a new bassist, I have a lot of confidence he'll continue to challenge me. Much better than previous instructors I've had at the big box music stores in the past.

My daughter takes lessons with Cal Music and has taken voice, piano and guitar lessons. In the years she has taken lessons, she has learned alot and had many wonderful teachers. The performances have given her confidence beyond what I though they would. I would highly recommend this studios for beginners and advanced students. I have recently decided to try to learn to sing as well and they found me the perfect teacher who makes me feel comfortable and I love my lessons also. We will be long time students here and would not go anywhere else.

Josh is amazing! He is teaching my 4-year-old son how to play drums which is a challenge with such a young age… Josh is knowledgeable and has a lot of patience. With only 3 classes we’re seeing improvements in my boy and I can’t thank him enough! I will take my daughter soon to take piano lessons with him too and I am also planning to learning how to play the guitar!
