Leslie M. says, "Finding The Briar Thomas Conservatory has truly been a blessing! We signed up our youngest daughter for piano lessons here and quickly saw that this facility is much more than just musical lessons. Amora the owner goes above and beyond with not only obtaining the best instructors, but providing a fulfilling experience for the entire family. The students are enriched with musical history, group projects, family field trips and so much more. I only wish we found her sooner. If you are hesitant about joining her school, DO NOT HESITATE. Amora's passion for teaching music is so evident that you can feel it throughout the school. You will not regret joining. " Read more

Marie H. says, "I have been taking guitar lessons from Jeremy Avalos since Jan. 16, 2020. In the beginning my father-in-law was taking lessons with me. He is now 95 years old and has wanted to learn to play the guitar ever since he was a young man. Due to his eyesight and memory problems he had to stop. I was really impressed with Jeremy's kindness and understanding and desire to teach him. He was very patient and took extra time to help him. I was very nervous in the beginning, because I was afraid of making many mistakes. It wasn't long before my confidence grew and I am now feeling more confident in my ability to play for myself and my family. I am very impressed with Jeremy's teaching skills, his compassion and patience. I look forward to learning more from him. I highly recommend Jeremy to anyone interested in learning to play the guitar!! He is very knowledgeable and a very talented guitar player!! Sincerely, Marie Hurst " 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?

Amora is so professional, kind and talented. My daughter looks forward to going to her lesson each week, to continue to learn from her. It’s not just a piano lesson, Amora creates a community of curious learners by including field trips to various places around town where the kids can experience music together, see various types of performing arts and share thoughts and ideas. We’re so happy with our experience with Amora.

I highly recommend Garden City Innovations for guitar lessons. Not only does Dave have a great sense of humor, making the lessons fun and engaging, but he is also incredibly patient, especially with kids. Our two kids liked him from the start. The curriculum is well-structured and effective, ensuring that students learn and progress steadily. Overall, a fantastic experience for anyone looking to learn guitar or any other instrument.

Jeremy is a patient and kind instructor. I have taken uke lessons for a year with him. He listens to what I would like to learn and understands how to teach adults. I liked him so much that I bought lessons for my God daughters who are 13 and 10 years old. Even ADHD didn't deter Jeremy from teaching guitar and uke. Because of the Pandemic, we switched to online lessons, Jeremy is just a good in person or online.

Jeff has been so kind and patient with my daughter and her violin lessons. We had previously taken a nine month break after her last instructor and Jeff has been able to make music fun again. You can tell he’s not just passionate about music but about helping others to love and appreciate it as well, which in my opinion is what makes a great instructor.
