I believe the best teachers are those who are able to understand the aspirations of their students and are able to give them the info and methods to acquire their dreams. I try to set student specific goals and learning paths to give them what they need. I view music as a form of communication like other languages. To be literate with a language, one must be able to understand it when they hear it, be able to say their own thoughts, be able to read written language, and write their own thoughts. I believe all of these skills are important when someone is learning music to be well rounded and literate. That's not to say "everything" must be kn ... View Profile

First of all, please read the message I sent to you before anything else! Moving on: Here is a list of just some ofthe things I am proficient in and can teach you: Genres (blues, rock, country, classical, metal, pop, punk) Technique (strumming, lead playing, fingerpicking, speed-picking, sweep picking) Theory (note-reading, scales/improvisation, chord construction, timing/rhythm) Composition (putting it all together- songwriting!) And this is all only the beginning. I come to each lesson with a plan, based off how I feel the student learns and what their goals are. I am patient and let the lessons move as fast as the student absorbs the inf ... View Profile

BJ Leichter Guitar Lessons

BJ Leichter Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: Although learning an instrument may come more easily to some people than others, I believe anyone can learn to play guitar. I have been playing guitar almost every day since I was about ten years old, and, personally, I've always been very good at playing songs just by listening to them. But whether you have either never played a musical instrument, just started, or have been playing for years, and have any interest in learning(about) songs, chords, scales, improvising, soloing, music theory, or writing songs, I would be more than happy to teach you. My influences are: My dad is definitely my biggest influence in guitar ... View Profile

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.
