Dave G. says, "I am a student of Bob Wolfman at Wolfman's School of Music. I also brought the 10 Week Guitar Course for Beginners. I have found Bob to be a very knowledgeable teacher. I like how his  teaching style blends what I would consider formal musical training (reading sheet music, music theory, learning scales, etc.) with practical applications of the topics (learning licks and encouraging improvisation). On a personal level, he pushed me to maintain motivation, foster improvement, and push myself to learn more and train harder. In regards to the 10 Week Guitar Course for Beginners, I have learned more from this introductory course than I have in years of casual playing. I was happily surprised to find the course contains both guitar specific information and fundamental music theory (e.g circle of fifths, chord construction theory, chord progressions). I'm finding that the theory aspect is applicable to other instruments as well. I never thought an intro guitar course would have information that was applicable to, say, the piano" 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?

Reviews for Methuen guitar teachers

Recent success stories from people in the Methuen area.
Ben O.
Craig is friendly, knowledgeable, and a great guitarist. I'm fairly experienced on guitar but in a single lesson he not only identified a weak link in my knowledge–major key improvisation–but also gave me a number of tips on major key improv and fluid demonstrations, which right away helped me not only address my problem, but strengthen that aspect in my own playing.

I left a review for Bob Wolfman on another site after I'd been taking lessons from him for a few months. Now a year later, my knowledge of theory, chord substitutions, jazz standards and jazz guitarists continues to grow. I am increasingly able to apply the theory Bob has walked me through lesson by lesson. Each time we play together, he has practical cues that help me improve my musical expression. As I said in my first review: "He knows what concepts and techniques I need to learn, he knows the order they need to be learned, and he has years of experience guiding guitarists using the most effective resources. Because I am convinced Bob has me on the right path, I am practicing more than I ever have before, enjoying both the challenges and the successes along the way. ... If you are willing to put your faith in Bob and put in the work, he can take your guitar playing to a new level".
