Dylan S. says, "I used to play guitar in high school but I unfortunately stopped playing when I went away to college. In the last couple years I was looking into picking the guitar up again and that’s when I got into contact with Chas. He taught a great balance of mechanics and music theory that really helped me thrive and get back to where I once was in a very timely manner. Now that I’m back up to speed we are diving into more advanced lessons and techniques and he’s showing a great range of catering to anyone who wants to begin learning or looking for something more advanced. I would definitely recommend seeing him and am looking forward to where I’ll be the next couple months!" Read more

Anne W. says, "Stephen was a lifesaver during COVID. The virtual lessons gave the kids a sense of connection that wasn't academic- a portal to the outside world. He is a patient teacher and incredibly understanding and helpful to me as a parent with all aspects from technology to scheduling. Before each lesson, he communicates pro-actively so we know what's coming and is always prepared. Both kids enjoy the lessons. They continue to gain confidence and grow their interest and skills almost a year and a half later. We would all highly recommend guitar lessons with Stephen." Read more

Your Guitar Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do guitar lessons cost near me?

Guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per lesson, depending on if they last 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. If it's a one-on-one lesson, it'll cost around $45 to $70 hourly. Learning guitar in a group is cheaper at $25 to $35 per session.

If you're taking lessons every month, it adds up to $170 to $315 with the typical prepaid discount.

Are guitar lessons worth it?

Guitar lessons are worth it since only a professional teacher giving you live feedback can guide you to learn faster. A good instructor helps you understand your mistakes and prevents you from developing bad habits.

Learning guitar by yourself takes a lot longer and won't prepare you as well to play in public.

At what age should I start guitar lessons?

Children can start guitar lessons from the ages of 6 to 10, or when they can comfortably hold the guitar and press the strings. Adults can start guitar lessons at any age, provided they practice regularly and patiently.

How many guitar lessons do I need?

The number of guitar lessons you need varies according to your goal and your practice routine. For many people, it typically takes about 2 to 6 months to play a simple tune. Mastering the guitar like a professional can take anywhere from 4 to 10 years.

What do you learn in guitar lessons?

In most guitar lessons, you can expect to learn:

  • How to correctly position your fingers to play chords
  • How to tune your guitar
  • How to play various scales
  • New techniques for plucking and strumming
  • How to read sheet music.

Are online guitar lessons good?

Online guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour and are good for getting personal instruction from skilled teachers worldwide. Take advantage of flexible scheduling and immediate feedback while learning new guitar-playing styles. Plus, you can easily record lessons to review their advice later.

How do I find the best guitar lessons near me?

In order to find the best guitar lessons for you, look through nearby teachers listed here on the Lessons website. You can also ask for teachers at local music stores or community colleges.

Before you hire a guitar teacher, make sure to:

  • Check out prices from at least 3 different teachers.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for a list of their current or previous students that you can talk to.
  • Talk to other parents about the teacher's reputation with their children.
  • Make sure you get a written agreement and schedule before your first lesson.
  • Avoid making a big payment upfront for a month of lessons until you're comfortable with the teacher.

What questions do I ask when choosing a guitar teacher?

To find the right guitar teacher, you can ask them these questions:

  • What kind of music degree do you have?
  • How many years of experience do you have in teaching guitar?
  • Can I have a free trial lesson to see if your teaching style helps me?
  • What is the average age of your students?
  • Will you assign me finger exercises as homework?
  • How often should I practice between lessons?
  • What textbooks do I need, and where can I buy used ones?
  • How many guitar-playing styles are you an expert in?
  • Can you modify your teaching style to suit my learning abilities?
  • What should I bring to our lessons, and how long is each one?
  • Can I get a copy of our schedule, agreement, and payment terms?
  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a class due to an emergency?
  • Can I choose some of my favorite songs to learn on the guitar?

Reviews for Atlanta guitar teachers

Recent success stories from people in the Atlanta area.
Trenten D.
Chas really goes in-depth with some of the harder to understand concepts and explains them thoroughly. Enough to the point where even when I knew nothing about music theory I was still able to understand the concepts. A great teacher and very supportive mentor when I shared musical ideas that I had been developing with him.

Stephen is an extremely experienced and effective teacher. He tailors lessons to the student's skill and objectives and closely monitors progress to ensure the plan is still appropriate. He is a very good listener and works to ensure the student is comfortable and understanding the concepts. Stephen effectively structures the next lesson based on the progress achieved at the last lesson. He is an excellent communicator and explains complex concepts in plain English. He is always on time for lessons and is totally reliable. Overall an outstanding guitar teacher.
