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 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

Joshua Peekstok Guitar Lessons

Joshua Peekstok Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: I try to offer much more than the average teacher. After the very first lesson a beginner guitar student will have the ability and knowledge of improvising their own solo's. As well as starting to learn their very first song (any song at all, chosen by the student). We will take this song and break it down to its basics and cover all the Music theory involved in that song. Already after the first lesson the student will now be improvising, learning a song, and have theory knowledge pertaining to their interests. I also have pro-recording gear which I use for take home jam tracks. My influences are: Jimi Hendrix, Eric Cl ... 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.
