I Will tailor your classes to include reading and writing, left and right hand technique if you're an aspiring songwriter, then song structure, lyric style, suited to where you are now in your development in your songwriter journey. I'm selective in my student choices and do this to pass on the skills and knowledge I've aqiured, not for the money. Only serious musicians and lyricist need apply.

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 Sterling Heights guitar teachers

It has been a complete pleasure learning guitar from Jeff Bauman. I remember feeling very nervous when first taking lessons. Jeff was very kind and friendly and he immediately put me at ease. Jeff is very knowledgeable and experienced. His teaching style is laid back and he shows great patience, while settting and helping me achieve required expectations. I appreciate his support in the setting and the achievement of stretch goals. Thank you Jeff for being there for me and being my mentor. You have made learning the guitar a fantastic experience. It's awesome to have a teacher who makes learning fun and can keep me motivated!

Neil is wonderful! He was so good at inspiring my son and getting him excited about lessons when he wasn’t in the mood . Neil is so good with kids, he meets them at their level and makes lessons fun and “cool”. And he is such an amazing guitarist! I wouldn’t look further if you need guitar lessons.

I first met Ms. Greene when my 18 month-old son started a toddler music class. I was amazed to watch Mackenna keep 2-8 toddlers engaged with instruments and songs for 30 minutes. She met each child on their level, and helped them experience music in whatever manner they were comfortable. I can’t speak highly enough of her talents both as a teacher and as a musician. A violinist for over 32 years, of paramount importance was finding a teacher who would help my kids establish a foundation for enjoying music for a lifetime. She has done that and more. And as a business owner, I have been impressed with her work-ethic, calmness under pressure, and responsible nature. She always arrives early, with a smile and ready to make music with little people.
