Hello, I started playing guitar in my teenage years and opened up my own business at the age of 18. Immediately fell in love with buisness,guitar, and music. After a few years of learning from the great guitarists such as, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, B.B. King, and the great jazz master Pat Matheny, I quickly realized I wanted to show my friends and family. My friends couldn’t believe it, and from then on, I knew I had a business in helping people improve their skill sets. ... View Profile

I listen to my students and what it is they want to get out of learning the instrument and not impose what I think they should learn. I enjoy the process of watching the student learn and I always learn something myself!

Fast Track Guitar And Songwriting

Fast Track Guitar And Songwriting

As a child, I struggled with the formal curriculums of music schooling. Like many others, I found textbooks and rigid repetitive exercises to be disheartening and divergent from what I enjoyed most about playing an instrument.  However, my love for listening to music and seeing concerts drew me back to the guitar time and time again, and I quickly began to discover the sheer joy in learning how to play the guitar. There are few hobbies more personally lucrative and enriching than making music, whether it be discovering a new chord or sharing a song with friends and family.  My experience with learning and teaching guitar is one of a ...

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.
