Welcome to my lessons page! Trained in classical and jazz, I teach piano and guitar, as well as music theory and composition. I value proper technique, but also encourage musical exercises that require the participation of imagination, because that is where I believe the best music comes from. From a musical family, I've played music for over twenty-two years, classically trained on piano at the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, and studied Jazz Piano at Metropolitan State University of Denver. I've played guitar for 15 years, in blues, rock, and flamenco groups, as a solo artist, and also studied jazz on the instrument. I've studied voice wi ... View Profile

The Music Lab

I began offering music lessons to the general public in the summer of 2010. I was fairly new to teaching and was sort of reinventing the wheel as I went about forming a lesson plan for my students. It quickly occurred to me that most younger people are not that interested in learning music theory and proper hand position while staring at abstract notes and symbols on a piece of paper but they were interested in making up their own songs. This is where the idea for The Music Lab was born. Children have an abundance of imagination and are fascinated by the sound of their own voices when recorded. I have not completely abandoned traditional teac ... View Profile

Teaching Philosophy My goal as a teacher is to help my students play music and achieve their individual goals while getting the best possible sound from the guitar. After a solid musical foundation is established, I have found that technique is learned best when in tandem with repertoire that supports it. While I encourage my students to explore various and any genres of music, I do request that my students are open to learning technique as it equips the student with the skills necessary to tackle any genre of music. Student Materials Materials that are required for a successful experience in both lessons and practice include: An instrument, ... View Profile

Mark Beauchemin Guitar Lessons

Mark Beauchemin Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: Getting his start in the power-pop band SR-71, Mark Beauchemin made a name for himself with his melodic ear and intense stage presence. Their debut album Now You See Inside (RCA) produced by Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters) went gold on the legs of the first single 'Right Now.' After two years of touring capped off by opening for Bon Jovi, and a second release, the band dismantled. Taking some time off and concentrating on writing and recording Mark got the call to audition for Vanessa Carlton. It was immediately obvious that he was the perfect choice for the Grammy nominated singer/songwriter/pianist. After appearing o ... 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.
