I am a licensed/certified Musikgarten teacher and have enjoyed teaching piano and guitar for 18 years.  My service stands out above the others not only because I love what I do but I also have the ability to work well with new beginners as well as those with more experience. My goal is to build a solid foundation of basic skills and move forward from there while having as much fun as possible!  I am open to listening to what my students are interested in learning but also find using a method book of great value.  I offer a free, introductory online or in studio lesson in order to ensure a good student/teacher fit.  I look ...

There are MANY guitar teachers out there, many of which stick to teaching you theory.  I like to focus on teaching how to play with feeling - how to emote and how to bring out what you have inside.  I work best with starting and intermediate players.  In addition to teaching guitar, I teach song writing and how to use your voice.  You can find some of my original demos on www.reverbnation.com/damnyoudeath

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.
