Hey! Im hoping after reading this your search for a guitar/bass/production teacher will finally come to an end. I have been playing guitar for 16 years with 8 of those coming professionally as a touring artist/musician. I am self taught with a background in gospel, blues, and rock. I like to teach using a combination of learning some of your favorite songs, applied music theory and ear training. I have been working with major guitar brands such as Fender, Gibson, and Yamaha and can often get my students discounts on new gear and equipment with these respective brands. As a growing artist and influencer I love to share the love of my partne

UKE ONLY * Hi ~ I'm a professional singer, performer, and children's music teacher, and I enjoy teaching ukulele to kids and adults (7+), especially to people who think they can't play guitar because it's too big (I also play guitar and find uke a lovely alternative) or to older beginners. I'm open to teaching via Zoom or at my studio (outdoors or indoors). I'm into folk, Americana, pop, rock, alt., and rhythm/percussion.

He is very experienced in playing and teaching guitar, and he has a personalized approach that suits my needs and goals. He is located in a convenient area, and he is very flexible with scheduling. He communicates clearly and effectively, and he always gives me constructive feedback and encouragement. He has helped me improve my skills and confidence in playing different genres of music. He has also taught me a lot about music theory. He has a passion for music and teaching, and he always makes the lessons fun and engaging. He is not only a great teacher, but also a great mentor: I enjoy my weekly lessons with him. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who wants to learn guitar or improve their musical abilities."

Music feeds the soul. Music connects people. Find the teacher who understands your styles of music. Find the teacher who makes the music fun. I can. I love music and I really like people. I make it fun, make it pay, and make it good for others. I had mostly excruciatingly rigid teachers. I wanted to play and sing, not play a "1-string melody followed by a 2-string melody...". Find the easy fun first. Then add complexity when and if desired.

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?

Hes very knowledgeable in all genres and knows how to start you off as a new student or even a seasoned player. I love that i can come in and choose whatever genre i want to learn and come out with scales and exercises to make me such a better player. Patient and very friendly. No teacher like him. Truly the best! Thank you!!
