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

I have taught 100s of students over the last 20 years. I feel that I relate to my students no matter what their age is. In other words, I remember what it's like to learn on guitar and if I can play, anyone can do it. I love meeting people and showing them how to develop their musical craft.

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

Jill L. says, "I’ve been learning so much from Pat. His lessons move along incrementally. He has his own way to remember chords and fingering that is so easy to understand. His patience for the student coupled with his sense of humor makes for a most enjoyable learning experience. He tailors his lessons according to my abilities and pushes me to go beyond my boundaries as well. I look forward to pour chats and my weekly lessons. " Read more

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.
