Taking group guitar lessons costs $25 to $35 per class. You can get a discount of 5% to 10% off if you pay for a whole month at once. Group lessons are the cheapest way to learn from a professional teacher in a semi-private setting.
You get less personal attention in a group session than in a private class, but you can learn from observing others in your group.
In comparison, private one-on-one guitar lessons costs $45 to $70 per hour.
Group guitar lessons are worth it because besides learning all the usual guitar skills and techniques, group lessons help students get better at skills you need in a band.
Benefits of guitar lessons with a group of people include:
However, the members of the group with the least experience will benefit the most from one-on-one guitar lessons as well to help them keep up with the other students.
Group guitar lessons are usually once or twice a week. The frequency of lessons will depend on if you're in a school's music group preparing for a competition, a band, or if you just want to learn guitar for fun at your own speed.
Group guitar lessons have about 2 to 7 students who are around the same age and skill level. Learning to play a musical instrument in a smaller group is best for early beginners.
