Gavin H. says, "Matty is an extraordinary musician, and is a really intuitive teacher! Even though he didn't teach me for very long the amount I learned from him in the time that I DID spend with him helped fuel me to be where I am today. Matty is an awesome guy and a great teacher and he built me great fundamentals and explained things to me in a clear way that I was easily able to drive myself in the direction I wanted once we had reached a milestone with my skill set. I would recommend anyone affiliated with Common Courtesy because they are all talented, but I would absolutely recommend Matty to anyone who has a passion and is willing to learn! " Read more

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

  • For ongoing classes, you'll pay $170 to $315 per month with the prepaid discount.
  • Online lessons cost anywhere from $35 to $55 per hour and let you jam with a teacher from the comfort of your own home.

Are electric guitar lessons worth it?

Electric guitar lessons are worth it if you want to learn more at a faster pace, develop a better technique, and get customized instructions to improve your style. Only an experienced electric guitar player can understand how to help you improve, so don't settle for a general guitar instructor.

What age is good to start electric guitar lessons?

A good age for kids to start electric guitar lessons is from 6 to 10 years old. Another indication they're ready to learn is whenever they're physically able to hold the guitar and have the hand strength to press the strings.

Adults of all ages can also start electric guitar lessons at any time. With the right guidance and consistent practice, anyone can master the electric guitar.

How many lessons does it take to learn electric guitar?

The number of lessons it takes you to learn electric guitar depends on your goals and how much time you dedicate to practicing those epic solos. Playing a simple tune might take 2 to 6 months of weekly classes.

If you're aiming to rock out like a pro, expect a time investment of 4 to 10 years.

Are acoustic and electric guitar lessons the same?

Acoustic and electric guitar lessons aren't the same because these are two entirely different instruments with unique equipment features.

Learning to play electric guitar requires:

  • Knowing how to use an amplifier and pedals that create sound effects
  • Understanding how to adjust the speaker connection
  • Knowledge of genres like rock, metal, blues, and jazz
  • Special techniques like power chords, palm muting, and string bending

Learning to play an acoustic guitar means you focus on classical, folk, country, pop, or blues music. A pick is optional in acoustic lessons, and you don't need amplifiers or cables. Acoustic teachers also place more emphasis on fingerpicking patterns.

How do I find the best electric guitar lessons near me?

You can find the best electric guitar lessons nearby to suit your needs by checking out our teacher listings her on the Lessons website. Your local music stores are also great places to start when scouting for the best guitar instructors.

Before making a decision, you should:

  • Compare prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Check out their reviews on Google and Lessons.
  • Request for a references list of past students to verify their track record.
  • Ask for opinions from other parents on what their kids think of the teacher.
  • Obtain a written schedule and contract before the first lesson.
  • Pay for a couple of sessions to see what you think before fully committing to a month's worth of lessons.

  • Did you study music in school, and what qualifications did you earn?
  • How long have you been teaching electric guitar?
  • Can I sample a lesson to gauge if your teaching style suits me?
  • What's the average age of your students?
  • What type of electric guitar would you recommend for me?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice should I put in?
  • What resources or books would you recommend for learning electric guitar?
  • Can you adapt your teaching methodology if I'm struggling with a concept?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long does each session last?

Reviews for Marietta electric guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Marietta 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.
