Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do electric guitar lessons cost near me?

Electric guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session with lengths of 30 to 60 minutes each. Private tuition costs $45 to $70 per hour, while group sessions are more wallet-friendly at $25 to $35 per class.

  • For ongoing classes, you'll pay $170 to $315 per month with the prepaid discount.
  • Online lessons cost anywhere from $35 to $55 per hour and let you jam with a teacher from the comfort of your own home.

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.

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

You can find the best electric guitar lessons nearby to suit your needs by checking out our teacher listings her on the Lessons website. Your local music stores are also great places to start when scouting for the best guitar instructors.

Before making a decision, you should:

  • Compare prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Check out their reviews on Google and Lessons.
  • Request for a references list of past students to verify their track record.
  • Ask for opinions from other parents on what their kids think of the teacher.
  • Obtain a written schedule and contract before the first lesson.
  • Pay for a couple of sessions to see what you think before fully committing to a month's worth of lessons.

What questions do I ask when choosing an electric guitar teacher?

Ask potential electric guitar teacher these questions before hiring:

  • Did you study music in school, and what qualifications did you earn?
  • How long have you been teaching electric guitar?
  • Can I sample a lesson to gauge if your teaching style suits me?
  • What's the average age of your students?
  • What type of electric guitar would you recommend for me?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice should I put in?
  • What resources or books would you recommend for learning electric guitar?
  • Can you adapt your teaching methodology if I'm struggling with a concept?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long does each session last?
  • Could I get a copy of our timetable and contract terms?
  • What's your policy regarding missed classes due to unforeseen circumstances?
  • Can I choose some songs that I'd love to learn?

Austin has been teaching my children piano for the past 1.5 years remotely, and I couldn't be more pleased with the progress they've made under his guidance! From the very beginning, Austin has shown an exceptional ability to connect with each child, understanding their individual learning styles and adapting his teaching methods accordingly. This personalized approach has not only made learning piano enjoyable for the kids but has also significantly accelerated their skill development. One of Austin's standout qualities is his patience. He is always calm and encouraging, even when the kids are struggling with a new concept or piece. His positive reinforcement and gentle corrections have helped build their confidence, making them eager to practice and improve. The growth in my children's piano knowledge and skill since starting lessons with Austin is truly remarkable. They have gone from being complete beginners to confidently playing intermediate pieces, understanding music theory, and even experimenting with composing their own music. Austin's comprehensive teaching style, which balances technical proficiency with creative expression, has been instrumental in this development. Overall, Austin is an outstanding piano instructor. His dedication, adaptability, and patient demeanor make him an excellent choice for anyone looking to foster a love of music and piano proficiency in their children. We are incredibly grateful for the positive impact he has had on our kids' musical journey.

Teaching kids is never easy. Thani has been so patient and kind when teaching my kiddos. He is very observant and caters to each child’s strengths and builds on that. Both my boys have progressed significantly working with Thani. They had no experience playing any instruments and to now know how to read notes, create their own music and genuinely love music, has been so awesome to witness. We are so thrilled that we have the opportunity to work with Thani and are really excited to see the continued progress my kids are and will be making.

My son is making fast progress as a result of Albert’s teaching ability and style. I highly recommend Albert for any age and level of student.
