Welcome to my lessons page! Trained in classical and jazz, I teach piano and guitar, as well as music theory and composition. I value proper technique, but also encourage musical exercises that require the participation of imagination, because that is where I believe the best music comes from.

In this course, you are the star! Having performed live for 15 years (and counting), I specialize in providing students with the right tools for them to be able to start playing in an intuitive way. Focusing mainly on practical goals, you can learn quickly and in a motivated way. No one is saying starting something new is easy, but it does get easy if you practice! If what you are looking for is a standard, classically-oriented education, look somewhere else! I'm here to teach you how to start playing songs from week one. If singing is something that interests you, I can also work with you to help you achieve playing and singing at the same t ... View Profile

My service stands out because I have successfully taught people who previously failed with other teachers. For example, my plumber came to fix a leak while I was finishing up a lesson. I asked him if he ever thought of playing guitar. He said he actually took guitar lessons from two teachers but he failed. He quit and he decided guitar wasn't a thing he could do. So I said take some lessons with me. I'll give you a free lesson right now. He took the lesson and he came back for many more and he got really good. He could play many complicated songs and solos too. So the teacher really does make a big difference. ... View Profile

Frequently asked questions

How much do guitar lessons cost?

The average cost for guitar lessons is $40 per hour. Available for all ages and all skill levels of guitar playing, the pricing of individual or group guitar lessons can start as low as $20/hour. Teachers charge based on their location, years of teaching, levels of knowledge and expertise, and travel time (if applicable). Lessons can last from half an hour to a full hour, and are priced accordingly.


How long does it take to learn guitar?

If you just want to learn a few chords to strum along to some songs, then learning to play the guitar really isn't that hard for most people. Many students are able to learn a few chords and get a decent strumming pattern going after a few weeks. If you've had prior experience playing an instrument, you can expect to pick it up after just a few lessons.


Should I take guitar lessons online or in person lessons?

Private in person guitar lessons with a skilled instructor that is focused on you, your interests, and your progress is the most sought after experience and hard to replicate online. Plus, you tend to learn faster in person. On the other hand, online guitar lessons are quickly becoming popular. The selection of teachers is not limited to those in your geographical area and you can communicate via video in real time with your teacher in the comfort of your home. When filling out your request on Lessons.com, we recommend you select both online and local options, then compare your options and see what works best for you.


How old should children be before starting guitar lessons?

A child as young as 4 can begin to learn if they are really motivated and have a patient, creative, and devoted teacher. However, we've found almost all kids under six are too young to benefit from formal guitar lessons, as they require dexterity and levels of concentration children their age can't provide. That being said, lessons do not need to be formal right off the bat, and can just provide a fun introduction. Also, your child may benefit from using a ukulele to start, as it's smaller and easier to learn, but very similar instrument.
