Gretta K. says, "So glad a friend told me about this company for our musical daughter! I couldn’t be happier with the ease of booking, communication, high quality teachers, and the fact that they come to your home for lessons is the most convenient thing ever! I can get so much more done having one less activity to shuttle around for. My daughter loves her teacher and I won’t use any other company for our music lesson needs. I’m even considering taking up guitar myself! Really appreciate the genius behind this quality and convenient company for hard working parents." Read more

According to Vintage Guitar Magazine I am "looking to bring a new sound to instrumental guitar music" and that my original songs are "a memorable mix of country, jazz, rock and soul that transcends all genres." As a sideman, my resume includes numerous tours with national acts including a Grammy winner and I've also had songs on SiriusXM Radio. And I love teaching and sharing my knowledge of music! My teaching background has been with all ages and all levels of students. I've had great success with getting beginners off the ground and helping them play the music they enjoy. Nothing is off-limits whether it be pop songs, fingerpicking, metal

I believe in lots of positive encouragement, fun, and working toward your goals. I learned through a variety of teachers and methods including myself, my dad, private lessons, community college, undergrad, and graduate schools. Because of this, I am able to approach the explanations & exercises from multiple angles and quickly adjust if one way doesn’t work for my student. At the heart of it, I really love music and love teaching. I offer lessons in piano, guitar, ukulele as well as music theory and recording. Bio: Rowan Blackwood (he/they) is a songwriter/composer and music teacher who writes indie pop as a solo artist and orchestral works

Peter V. says, "In my mid-50s I got the bug to learn guitar. Something I’d always wanted to do. I am so glad I found Miguel after having had mediocre (at best) experiences with other guitar teachers. Miguel has such a passion for, and skill with, the guitar. He is fluent in all genres: pop, rock, classical, country and, his forte, flamenco. As an instructor, he works great with all ages: kids, teens and adults. Miguel leads his students in the fundamentals of guitar using the style and genre of music of their primary interest. If you have the basics already, he can lead you to mid-level and on to very advanced techniques. All you have to do is listen to him play and you know you’re in great hands. His smile and passion is genuine. He is patient, kind, with great energy and very encouraging. He can see what you’re trying to do and provide immediate feedback on any corrections you need to make. Try one lesson with him and you’ll be hooked." Read more

Your acoustic guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do acoustic guitar lessons cost near me?

Most acoustic guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session for 30 to 60 minutes. Private class prices are $45 to $70 per hour and give students the most attention. Group guitar lessons cost $25 to $35 per session for a collaborative learning environment with less personal attention.

Subscriptions for ongoing lessons are available from $170 to $315 per month.

Are acoustic guitar lessons worth it?

Acoustic guitar lessons are worth it because the structured teaching style motivates students and enhances faster progress. A private instructor also helps to prevent the development of poor techniques common in self-taught musicians.

What age is good to start acoustic guitar lessons?

You can start acoustic guitar lessons for children from ages 6 to 10 years old while adults can start lessons at any age. The journey of mastering the guitar is dependent on your dedication to practice and your teacher's qualifications.

How many acoustic guitar lessons do I need?

The amount of acoustic guitar lessons you need will depend on what you want to accomplish and how frequently you practice. Learning a simple song takes 2 to 6 months on average. However, mastering the guitar like a professional musician takes 4 to 10 years.

Is there a difference between electric and acoustic guitar lessons?

There are many differences between electric and acoustic guitar lessons because these instruments have unique features.

An electric guitar requires you to learn:

  • How to use an amplifier
  • How to work with effects and foot pedals
  • What makes a wide range of sounds for rock, metal, blues, or jazz
  • Techniques like power chords, palm muting, and note bending

However, learning to play an acoustic guitar is simpler because it doesn't connect to amplifiers or cables. Acoustic guitar playing uses different finger techniques to make a resonant sound suitable for folk, country, pop, and blues music.

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

To find the most suitable acoustic guitar lessons, you can peruse the list of nearby teachers here on the Lessons website. Also, don't overlook the potential of local music stores for guitar lessons.

Before settling on a guitar teacher, it's crucial to:

  • Review the prices from at least 3 different teachers.
  • Examine reviews about them on Google and Lessons.
  • Ask for references from other students they've taught.
  • Consult with other parents to gauge their children's experience with the teacher.
  • Get a written schedule and contract prior to the first lesson.
  • Evaluate the teacher's compatibility before signing up for a full month.

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

To choose the best acoustic guitar teacher, it helps to pose these questions:

  • What music-related degrees do you have?
  • Is there an option for a complimentary first session to see if we're a good fit?
  • What is the extent of your experience in teaching guitar?
  • Which type of acoustic guitar would be most appropriate for me to practice on?
  • What's the average age range of your student base?
  • Will you assign finger drills for me to practice outside of lessons?
  • How much independent practice do you recommend between classes?
  • Which specific textbooks should I get?
  • How many styles of guitar music can you teach?
  • Could you adjust your instructional methods if I'm having difficulties?
  • What should I bring to our classes?
  • How long is each session?
  • Could I get a copy of our class timetable, agreement, and terms of payment?
  • What is your protocol to cancel a class due to an unforeseen circumstance?
  • Is there flexibility to add some of my favorite songs into the curriculum?
