I began playing at the age of 9 starting with classic rock and developing my own style. In school, I participated in Concert band, earning first chair in percussion each year, as well as assisting the school's orchestra programs several times.

I teach mostly in-home, though also have a studio available in Greer All ages welcome, fre ... View Profile

Tony Baker Guitar Lessons

Tony Baker Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: Lead guitarist of Atlanta's Moby Dick here to start you off playing Riffs , Solos and Songs that you love listening to. I'll show you the best methods so you can achieve your dream of playing the guitar. You'll start learning many kinds of scales. At this point, learning to play guitar means better finger coordination, and the best way to achieve this is by playing scales. There is a purpose to these exercises that make absolute sense once you have mastered the scales. To generate some excitement in your practice sessions, try playing the scales backwards. Take your time. My influences are: My Dad, EVH, SRV, Randy Rhoa ... View Profile

I've known since I first picked up guitar back in high school that playing my heart out up on that stage is something that I will always want to do for the rest of my life. Playing guitar allowed me to take my passion for music and focus it in a way that would allow me to communicate and express my emotions and feelings through guitar.

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.
