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.

Have fun and learn music in Tampa!

Lisa Pearce · Brandon, FL


Hey Everybody: Lisa Pearce here and I have literally spent my entire life in the music industry.

You might think it’s absurd but I was inspired long ago at the age of seven and it was by a second grade substitute music teacher. It was thrilling to hear her play and the happiness she showed us. I decided right then and there that I was going to do music for the rest of my life. Then my brothers, sister and friends slowly came on board. Many of them play for fun and enjoyment still. They all certainly have fond memories of good times and laughter.

The best part of my job and I will be honest here is when the person wants to learn a song that is on You Tube or their favorite band. They either want to sing it or play it and to me it sounds like something fun to do.

We connect and the music takes a whole new life to itself. The happiness that we both experience is so worth the time and effort.

The songs in the method books are good and theory is fascinating yet we all do those exercises so we can play the songs that move our souls.

Since I have been in the industry for so long and worked in a top recording studio for one thing there have been many people I have met along the way.

Who knows what will come of this musical adventure?

I love the sparkle in people’s eyes when they know and I know they are going to dive in and learn how to play. Then they tell me about the fun they have with their friends, talent shows and school functions not to mention their families.

I have helped students get ready for performances, competitions, and contests, as well as events. You name it, I have done it.

When I judge events and see the time and effort that people put into getting ready, that inspires me. To me music is a universal love that opens the heart and the mind and then that person is forever changed.

Who knows what music has done for people all over the world? Music is ageless and timeless. Playing music settles the soul, invigorates the mind, and relaxes the body.

When teaching I see it as a comforting and fulfilling time together well worth the effort.

So my advice to those musical souls out there is this go through the process and enjoy the results. Six months with a good teacher can change your musical view for a lifetime.

Search until you find what sings to you and keeps you growing.
