As someone who has been playing and performing guitar for over 8 years, I understand the significance of a good guitar teacher.

I ensure that my students have a complete understanding of the concepts that they learned by the end of each lesson.

Rich's Guitar Lessons

Rich's Guitar Lessons

I've been playing guitar for over 38 years. What motivates and keeps me interested in playing guitar is more challenging songs, different ways to play scales and arpeggios, inspiration and influences of my favorite artist to learn from. As much as I like to learn songs I also like play instrumentals from Yngwie Malmsteen, Jason Becker, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Vinny Moore and Paul Gilbert. Since I started, over the years I've learned songs from Led Zeppelin, Godsmake, Metallica, Megadeth, Van Halen and Stevie Ray Vaughan to name a few.

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.
