Larry L. says, "George is an amazing musician and a great guy. I bought some guitars as artwork in my house because I’ve always thought they were cool. The only problem was I didn’t know how to play them at all like 0 and it certainly was obviously that I have no natural ability. I know lots of friends that play at really high levels but I knew hanging around them I would never learn anything because it would turn into a social event. I knew I needed a teacher, a real teacher. I found George on this site and luckily he lives only minutes away. From day one he was sure that I learn something at every lesson. Difficult task as I’m not a good student and my attention span is pathetic. If I’m not good at something right away I loose interest. George is so patient and supportive that I won’t give up. I only have time for one lesson a week sometimes less due to my job but lessons with George are one of the few things I look forward to going to. Thanks " Read more

Why should I take classical guitar lessons?

You should take classical guitar lessons if you have an acoustic guitar and want to learn how to play classical concertos or Spanish-style music with fingerpicking.

Classical guitar lessons teach you how to:

  • Use nylon-string guitars and strum with the fingers instead of a pick
  • Develop your fingers to focus on complex fingerpicking techniques
  • Understand classical music theory and sight-reading

At what age should I start classical guitar lessons?

Children generally begin their classical guitar journey between the ages of 6 to 10, or as soon as they can hold the instrument well with enough hand strength to press the strings. Adults of all ages can master the instrument with the correct guidance and consistent practice.

How many classical guitar lessons do I need?

The number of weekly classical guitar lessons you need will depend on your personal goals and dedication to practice. A beginner might grasp a simple song within 2 to 6 months, but acquiring proficiency like a professional requires 4 to 10 years on average.

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

You can find proficient classical guitar tutors nearby by looking at the listings here on the Lessons platform. Sometimes teachers ara available through local music stores too.

Before hiring your tutor, always:

  • Obtain quotes from a minimum of 3 teachers and clarify what they teach.
  • Review feedback about them on Google and the Lessons site.
  • Request a reference list of their past students.
  • Ask fellow parents about their children's experiences with the tutor.
  • Secure a written agreement and schedule prior to the first session.
  • Make small initial payments to gauge the tutor's compatibility before committing to a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a classical guitar teacher?

Ask these pertinent questions to help you pick a classical guitar teacher:

  • Did you study music formally, and what qualifications do you have?
  • How many years have you been teaching classical guitar?
  • Could I have a trial lesson to see if your teaching method works for me?
  • What is the typical age range of your students?
  • Which model of acoustic guitar should I purchase?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice is required?
  • What type of strings are best for beginners?
  • Which books should I buy for learning classical guitar?
  • Can you accommodate different learning styles?
  • What essentials should I bring to class, and how long is each session?
  • Can I have a written copy of our class schedule?
  • What is your policy for missed classes?
  • Am I allowed to suggest songs that I would like to learn?

Reviews for Meriden classical guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Meriden area.
Jon F.
Pete is clearly a very experienced teacher. Not only will he give you all of the practical training you would ever need, you will leave realizing he subtly taught you some music theory and even the physics of the instrument.

He breaks down the music and techniques of how to create the sounds I want from my guitar. He can also listen to a piece of music I want to learn and can know right then what notes/chords are being played. I’m always amazed at how easy he makes it look. I’m very lucky to have found such a great musician to be my teacher.
