Joseph S. says, "I started studying classical guitar 3 years prior to starting with Stephan, and my progress had stagnated. From the start with Stephan, however, it was clear that each lesson and each assigned exercise and piece had a purpose. Stephan's feedback and instruction during the lessons is clear, patient and constructive. I feel like I'm back to making significant progress in the last several months since I started studying with Stephan! And, we have established goals, so I'm always looking forward to what I'll be able to play in both the near and long term. I have only the highest recommendation for Stephan!!" Read more

Hello my name is Ruben Gonzales, i am 21 years old and have been playing guitar for 4 years now. I’m not the most technically adept player myself but anything I ever wanted to learn I gave it my all and figured it out and through those trials and errors I believe I built a good skill set and foundation for my playing and so I believe I could be of great assistance to any beginners or people struggling to make progress. I like to think music is not a talent or gift that one has but can be formed around one’s own idiosyncrasies

Hello, I’ve been playing guitar for the past 14 years as a hobby. I’m self taught, but my foundation for music was established in middle school and high school band class. I played first concert trumpet and first jazz trumpet under my instructor, Mr. Rodriguez, and excelled while being a part of his class. I mainly play acoustic guitar but can shed some light on heavier/electric guitar skills as well. If you’re somebody looking for a quick and easy grasp on the guitar or just looking to gain a little bit more out of playing, then my lessons are perfect for you. Thank you.

Your classical guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do classical guitar lessons cost near me?

Most classical guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session for durations of 30 to 60 minutes. One-on-one lessons typically cost between $45 and $70 per hour, whereas group sessions are a more affordable option at $25 to $35 per class.

For those who prefer a digital classroom, online lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour. Monthly ongoing instruction costs $170 to $315 with a prepaid discount.

Why should I take classical guitar lessons?

You should take classical guitar lessons if you have an acoustic guitar and want to learn how to play classical concertos or Spanish-style music with fingerpicking.

Classical guitar lessons teach you how to:

  • Use nylon-string guitars and strum with the fingers instead of a pick
  • Develop your fingers to focus on complex fingerpicking techniques
  • Understand classical music theory and sight-reading

At what age should I start classical guitar lessons?

Children generally begin their classical guitar journey between the ages of 6 to 10, or as soon as they can hold the instrument well with enough hand strength to press the strings. Adults of all ages can master the instrument with the correct guidance and consistent practice.

How many classical guitar lessons do I need?

The number of weekly classical guitar lessons you need will depend on your personal goals and dedication to practice. A beginner might grasp a simple song within 2 to 6 months, but acquiring proficiency like a professional requires 4 to 10 years on average.

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

You can find proficient classical guitar tutors nearby by looking at the listings here on the Lessons platform. Sometimes teachers ara available through local music stores too.

Before hiring your tutor, always:

  • Obtain quotes from a minimum of 3 teachers and clarify what they teach.
  • Review feedback about them on Google and the Lessons site.
  • Request a reference list of their past students.
  • Ask fellow parents about their children's experiences with the tutor.
  • Secure a written agreement and schedule prior to the first session.
  • Make small initial payments to gauge the tutor's compatibility before committing to a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a classical guitar teacher?

Ask these pertinent questions to help you pick a classical guitar teacher:

  • Did you study music formally, and what qualifications do you have?
  • How many years have you been teaching classical guitar?
  • Could I have a trial lesson to see if your teaching method works for me?
  • What is the typical age range of your students?
  • Which model of acoustic guitar should I purchase?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice is required?
  • What type of strings are best for beginners?
  • Which books should I buy for learning classical guitar?
  • Can you accommodate different learning styles?
  • What essentials should I bring to class, and how long is each session?
  • Can I have a written copy of our class schedule?
  • What is your policy for missed classes?
  • Am I allowed to suggest songs that I would like to learn?

Reviews for Sacramento classical guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Sacramento area.
Lia A.
William is great at motivating my 13 year old son. I think William knows just how much to push and when to give him space. My son loves playing the guitar, never wants to miss a lesson, and I don't have to remind him to practice.

We are so lucky to have found a real musician. If you want to learn, you want to learn from a trained professional. William is very kind, patient, and quick in figuring out what you need to do to make progress. Every lesson is productive by the minute. My 12 yo son started guitar lessons with him. Now he is teaching my wife, my son, and me. He is actually coaching my wife on singing also so she can strum and sing at the same time. She probably had 4 lessons with him and we are ready to record. Lol. I think it is a little ambitious to produce family music records now, but why not? It’s fun to explore your potential. Besides, it’s important to William to know that he has given us something valuable. William is dedicated teacher and musician. He is a great role model for my boy.
William Chan Guitar Lessons
Laura D.
As an adult who had never played a musical instrument in my life, I was pretty nervous walking in to my first lesson. Eddie has a kind and easy way about him, and he talked me through my anxieties. After my first lesson, I felt at ease and confident that he would help me reach my goals. I've now been working with him for over 2 months and I've already made so much progress with his guidance. He's very patient with me, and is very skilled in his ways of helping me through obstacles. Not only is he very knowledgeable, his passion for music and teaching is palpable. I have found that lessons with him are fun and catered to my own musical preferences and needs. I would definitely recommend Eddie to anyone hoping to learn a musical instrument.
