First of all, I believe music study should be fun.  I'm a touring musician and composer, singer-songwriter, so I have years of first-hand experience with communicating to the audience and how we can express ourselves in music.  I love all kinds of music and try to meet students where they are with what they like to do.  With a classical background and jazz experience (as well as rock, folk and other genres), I'm ready to help with any styles of guitar playing, finger-style, pick and electric styles, etc..  I think I can particularly help students explore the classical guitar.  I have developed materials I (including a ...

After years of teaching and performing, I realize that the first priority of teaching is to instill and foster the love of music that the student brings to this process. My goal is to make sure that the student enjoys learning while working towards realizing their musical dreams and goals.I can, and will, teach basic theory, chords, ear training,  and so on.  These things will support what the student wants to do, whether is learning to sing songs, songwriting, improvising or whatever.  I want to make sure that the student ...

Anyone Can Learn With My Method It is completely untrue that some people are "born to sing or play an instrument" while others are not. Using my method, the most "tone deaf" can learn to sing perfectly in tune, the most nasal or unappealing sound can be transformed into the most beautiful resonant tone, and someone with "no talent" can become better than anyone out there. With this superb method when you finish singing your voice will feel better than when you started! All it takes is desire, patience, perseverance, and above all, practice. I also have a unique and very patient teaching style that can make learning any instrument seem eas ... 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.
