Sing what you play and play from the heart.  As a Guitar Performance graduate from Musicians Institute, I was fortunate enough to have been taught these ideas from guitarists I considered to be my idols; Jake Eckert (Dirty Dozen Brass Band), Rick Zunigar (Stevie Wonder) and the late Ross Bolton (Al Jarreau).  My approach is to provide that unique experience to my students and inspire them to achieve their goals.  Through my 15+ years of experience as a session guitarist and instructor, I have had the opportunity to perform and record with some of the top musicians in Los Angeles, while teaching students of various ages and skil ...

Hills Academy of Music, Art and Dance currently has more than 500 students taking weekly lessons. We have 3 locations, 2 in Torrance and 1 in Palos Verdes.  Hills’ method of matching students with the appropriate teacher has been the formula to success. We know that all students learn differently. We also know that as people, we connect with certain types of people. Making that match with the teacher is crucial to making the learning process seamless and natural. You can take a piano lesson, then jump into an art class, and also point those toes in your ballet class - all under one roof. Did we mention, we have an award winning Cho ... View Profile

Frequently asked questions

How much do guitar lessons cost?

The average cost for guitar lessons is $40 per hour. Available for all ages and all skill levels of guitar playing, the pricing of individual or group guitar lessons can start as low as $20/hour. Teachers charge based on their location, years of teaching, levels of knowledge and expertise, and travel time (if applicable). Lessons can last from half an hour to a full hour, and are priced accordingly.


How long does it take to learn guitar?

If you just want to learn a few chords to strum along to some songs, then learning to play the guitar really isn't that hard for most people. Many students are able to learn a few chords and get a decent strumming pattern going after a few weeks. If you've had prior experience playing an instrument, you can expect to pick it up after just a few lessons.


Should I take guitar lessons online or in person lessons?

Private in person guitar lessons with a skilled instructor that is focused on you, your interests, and your progress is the most sought after experience and hard to replicate online. Plus, you tend to learn faster in person. On the other hand, online guitar lessons are quickly becoming popular. The selection of teachers is not limited to those in your geographical area and you can communicate via video in real time with your teacher in the comfort of your home. When filling out your request on Lessons.com, we recommend you select both online and local options, then compare your options and see what works best for you.


How old should children be before starting guitar lessons?

A child as young as 4 can begin to learn if they are really motivated and have a patient, creative, and devoted teacher. However, we've found almost all kids under six are too young to benefit from formal guitar lessons, as they require dexterity and levels of concentration children their age can't provide. That being said, lessons do not need to be formal right off the bat, and can just provide a fun introduction. Also, your child may benefit from using a ukulele to start, as it's smaller and easier to learn, but very similar instrument.
