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

Willie F. says, "My daughter has been going to A Musician Is..... for 6 years now. Many hobbies have come and gone but not her desire to play the violin and I believe that has alot to do with the teachers here. I've sat in on many classes and it's amazing to see the progress my daughter & son have made, the knowledge they have gained learning to play , the discipline they have learned thru practice and being a musician and how to apply that to everyday life. Nikki's music knowledge and the tidbits she throws your way makes each class entertaining. My daughter & son (piano for 1 yr now) look forward to all the recitals and they gets a kick out of people of all ages dressed up nervous and excited to perform. Love the group classes and group recitals also. It’s a family atmosphere and after all this time it’s been great to see everyone grow and improve. One of the best decisions I’ve made. Getting my kids into lessons and having music playing in my house every night!!" Read more

Crystal W. says, "I just finished Moon Magnet’s course, “Release Your Music in 90 Days.” When I first read about this course, I did not really believe that I could create releasable music in 90 days. Boy, was I wrong! From the very first lesson, my teacher was attentive, thorough and provided actionable feedback throughout the course. I walked away with 6 songs that with minor refinements will be released in the near future. I would recommend Moon Magnet to anyone who wants to develop a more structured recording, mixing, mastering, and release strategy." Read more

He understands the rush to start playing songs but first helped me work on my initial technique to better my skills in the long run.

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?

Reed has been my two kids' piano teacher for the past five years and we all think Reed is the best! He is clearly a very skilled and talented musician himself and his love of music is obvious in his instruction and teaching style. As a teacher, Reed is a perfect combination of patience, encouragement, and structure. While he focuses on the fundamental and technical aspects of music, he also encourages students to develop their own style and explore songs and music that speak to their individual interests. My kids have learned to play some of their favorite songs which keeps them interested and excited about piano. When I hear my kids playing the piano, I am struck by the fact that, thanks to Moon Magnet, they are really good piano players! Reed is reliable and dependable while at the same time being flexible with scheduling. This flexibility is important to our family given our kids' activities and changing schedules. Reed is also friendly and approachable and always open to suggestions. We have referred Moon Magnet to several friends and they have all been extremely happy and impressed. If you are looking for a great piano teacher, look no further and contact Moon Magnet!

Only one session in and I can tell Mr. Duncan is a great music instructor. With his pace and calm demeanor, I could not have asked for a better instructor. He gave me the encouraging feeling that I could be a great guitar player tomorrow. I still have a long ways to go but I am definitely looking forward to our next session.
