Alan Morrison has been playing the guitar and bass for over 35 years and teaching lessons throughout those years. "The guitar, and music in general, has been a great source of enjoyment for me.  My goal is to help my students learn the guitar so they can enjoy the many benefits of playing an instrument. I believe in starting out with the basics, such as reading music and learning where the notes and chords are on the guitar. I also start teaching songs at the first lesson. From there we can go to more advanced things, like learning specific songs, or improvisation." Alan has played in various bands since the age of 16 and enjoys many di ... View Profile

Jeff Dicssokerson Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: Lessons are based on a systematic progression of techniques using established method materials. Students are taught how to read music in both standard notation and tab. They are also taught music theory and how it influences their playing technique. Students are taught by an instructor who is a full-time college professor with 30 years of experience and who has a B.A. from Augustana College, an M.A. from Sangamon State University, and pursued his Ph.D from the University of Iowa. My influences are: Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Boston, Eagles, Moody Blues, Segovia My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio Guitar ... View Profile

Christopher’s Guitar Lessons

Christopher’s Guitar Lessons

I graduated with honors from the Guitar Institute of Technology (a branch of Musician's Institute) in Hollywood, CA.  I've been playing for over 30 years.  I've been teaching for over 20 years.  I take both a fun and thorough approach to teaching. I derive great enjoyment from the instrument, and I work hard to learn it to the best of my ability. And it's this same approach that I'm passionate about instilling in my students.  If you, or your son or daughter, want to learn to play the guitar, or to get much better at it--AND you really want to enjoy the process--then I'm the teacher for the job. ...

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.
