Each session, I focus on teaching a lesson tailored specifically to each students' needs and moving step by step accordingly based on a structured syllabus. If necessary, and at no cost to the student, I am willing to go overtime with the student to ensure that they go home with a clear understanding of their piano pieces and what is expected from them in their assigned homework. This allows for our lesson in the following week's session to be as productive as possible in order for us to move on to the next level and learn new music pieces. I also teach Music Theory classes to help... I am passionate in teaching the art of music and piano to ...

Noevery great guitar player is a great teacher. I started teaching because I love leading people to their own musical truth....everybody has one : a combination of rhythm theory and pure love . Let's find yours! I'm a low-volume teacher and then I get a lot of inquiries I don't take every student on. It's important to me to understand what my students goals are. Nothing is better than seeing someone work hard to achieve challenges in music.

Your electric guitar questions, answered

How much do electric guitar lessons cost near me?

Electric guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session with lengths of 30 to 60 minutes each. Private tuition costs $45 to $70 per hour, while group sessions are more wallet-friendly at $25 to $35 per class.

  • For ongoing classes, you'll pay $170 to $315 per month with the prepaid discount.
  • Online lessons cost anywhere from $35 to $55 per hour and let you jam with a teacher from the comfort of your own home.

Are electric guitar lessons worth it?

Electric guitar lessons are worth it if you want to learn more at a faster pace, develop a better technique, and get customized instructions to improve your style. Only an experienced electric guitar player can understand how to help you improve, so don't settle for a general guitar instructor.

What age is good to start electric guitar lessons?

A good age for kids to start electric guitar lessons is from 6 to 10 years old. Another indication they're ready to learn is whenever they're physically able to hold the guitar and have the hand strength to press the strings.

Adults of all ages can also start electric guitar lessons at any time. With the right guidance and consistent practice, anyone can master the electric guitar.

How many lessons does it take to learn electric guitar?

The number of lessons it takes you to learn electric guitar depends on your goals and how much time you dedicate to practicing those epic solos. Playing a simple tune might take 2 to 6 months of weekly classes.

If you're aiming to rock out like a pro, expect a time investment of 4 to 10 years.

Are acoustic and electric guitar lessons the same?

Acoustic and electric guitar lessons aren't the same because these are two entirely different instruments with unique equipment features.

Learning to play electric guitar requires:

  • Knowing how to use an amplifier and pedals that create sound effects
  • Understanding how to adjust the speaker connection
  • Knowledge of genres like rock, metal, blues, and jazz
  • Special techniques like power chords, palm muting, and string bending

Learning to play an acoustic guitar means you focus on classical, folk, country, pop, or blues music. A pick is optional in acoustic lessons, and you don't need amplifiers or cables. Acoustic teachers also place more emphasis on fingerpicking patterns.

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

You can find the best electric guitar lessons nearby to suit your needs by checking out our teacher listings her on the Lessons website. Your local music stores are also great places to start when scouting for the best guitar instructors.

Before making a decision, you should:

  • Compare prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Check out their reviews on Google and Lessons.
  • Request for a references list of past students to verify their track record.
  • Ask for opinions from other parents on what their kids think of the teacher.
  • Obtain a written schedule and contract before the first lesson.
  • Pay for a couple of sessions to see what you think before fully committing to a month's worth of lessons.

What questions do I ask when choosing an electric guitar teacher?

Ask potential electric guitar teacher these questions before hiring:

  • Did you study music in school, and what qualifications did you earn?
  • How long have you been teaching electric guitar?
  • Can I sample a lesson to gauge if your teaching style suits me?
  • What's the average age of your students?
  • What type of electric guitar would you recommend for me?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice should I put in?
  • What resources or books would you recommend for learning electric guitar?
  • Can you adapt your teaching methodology if I'm struggling with a concept?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long does each session last?
  • Could I get a copy of our timetable and contract terms?
  • What's your policy regarding missed classes due to unforeseen circumstances?
  • Can I choose some songs that I'd love to learn?

Reviews for West Sacramento electric guitar lessons

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.
Guitar / Vocal Lessons With A Heart
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.

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.
