Debra J. says, "I decided to learn to play the piano for my senior project and luckily I discovered Ms. Kathy from some friends at school. From the moment I met her she made me feel welcomed and like I could really do this. Immediately when I stepped into her at home studio I could tell she loved music and from just a short talk I learned about the many years of experience she had. Originally it was planned for us to do our piano lessons in person starting this summer, but with the outbreak of coronavirus our plans changed. Ms. Kathy decided to do online zoom lessons with us and I am so glad she did. Even though our summer hours can no longer count towards our senior project it still helped us so much to get better acclimated to the piano. This summer I have learned so much about the piano and music in general. I have learned some music theory, the keys on the piano, how to better read music, about key and time signatures, chords, how to make my own chord progressions, and so much more. In just two months Ms. Kathy has worked diligently with us each week to help us become better pianist. Ms. Kathy brings some sort of structure into our classes as well as much flexibility. At times I felt as if she was moving too quickly for me, but once I told her she was responsive to accommodate me. She is not just a teacher that teaches. She is a teacher that learns from her students and uses that to better herself. Her instructive attitude keeps us on track and she is also very understanding. Personally I had a situation in which I had to be out of my home for almost 2 weeks and Ms. Kathy reassured me that it was okay. She worked with me to continue to practice even without my piano. We went over music theory and she directed me to practice my fingering techniques, to complete theory activities, and to listen to piano instrumentals to work on internalizing the beat. She once said to us that she wants us to not just be listeners to music but to be participants. I believe that we have already started to become active listeners, analyzing the music that we hear. Ms. Kathy has several different students with differing skill levels but she ensures your learning experience is unique to you. If she notices that you need help on a specific area she will try her best to help you improve. With all the unexpected changes that have occurred I believe Ms. Kathy has done a great job handing it and has not allowed these situations to hold her or her students down." 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?

I’ve always had a variety of music teachers while growing up because they either moved or I was assigned a new one. I appreciate that there is some stability in my learning now because I am able to emotionally connect with my teacher and understand their style.
