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 decided to branch out and learn more genres before deciding to specialize in my favorite genres, Metal and Rock.I encourage creativity and finding your style, believing in no right or wrong way to play. I have taught for over a year from small children to retired musicians, and tailor lessons to each student. I teach mostly in-home, though also have a studio available in Greer All ages welcome, fre ... View Profile

My teaching approach: I believe that a student with the desire to learn any musical instrument will simply build upon that desire. I do not believe in high pressure or guilt motivation. A good foundation and a developing love for playing the instrument is the best direction. Everything from that point on is up to the student. All I do is encourage and guide. My influences are: I do have influences. Guitar Techniques: Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Fingerstyle, Performance, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Guidance In Equipment Selection Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following: It all comes ...

My teaching approach: Right from the beginning, my students learn the songs that they want to play, that they've heard on the radio and identify with. This makes them want to practice, and practice is what makes them better players. They play note-for-note with the recordings and know what it's like to be a rock musician. 20+ years of music experience. My guitar lessons take place in: In the teacher's studio Guitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: Instructor's studio on Georiga Ave in North Augusta Guitar Techniques: Guidance In Equipment Selection, Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Jamming Skills, Improvisation, Open t ...

Christopher Reid Guitar Lessons

Christopher Reid Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: Will start by finding out what the student wants to learn and what his or her music influences are. Then we will begin to unfold what it will take, to get to that point of expertise. I dont force feed anything I want the student to want to learn it. My gear and basic teaching gear is simple. When I am giving the lesson on how to actually play something, I will use a practice amp with maybe a few little overdrive pedals and a american telecaster. When the student is showcasing what he has learned i will beef it up a little bit with delays and more gain. My influences are: John mayer, Ricky Skaggs, Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, ... View Profile

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.
