Since I studied with the legendary Reverend Gary Davis back in the 1960s and played with virtually every important Black and white Blues musician I bring a special amount of experience as well as knowledge to my students. Like I said, I learned guitar from Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, Johnny Shines, Dave Van Ronk, and other great musicians who are no longer with us.

Why should I take classical guitar lessons?

You should take classical guitar lessons if you have an acoustic guitar and want to learn how to play classical concertos or Spanish-style music with fingerpicking.

Classical guitar lessons teach you how to:

  • Use nylon-string guitars and strum with the fingers instead of a pick
  • Develop your fingers to focus on complex fingerpicking techniques
  • Understand classical music theory and sight-reading

At what age should I start classical guitar lessons?

Children generally begin their classical guitar journey between the ages of 6 to 10, or as soon as they can hold the instrument well with enough hand strength to press the strings. Adults of all ages can master the instrument with the correct guidance and consistent practice.

How many classical guitar lessons do I need?

The number of weekly classical guitar lessons you need will depend on your personal goals and dedication to practice. A beginner might grasp a simple song within 2 to 6 months, but acquiring proficiency like a professional requires 4 to 10 years on average.

How do I find the best classical guitar lessons near me?

You can find proficient classical guitar tutors nearby by looking at the listings here on the Lessons platform. Sometimes teachers ara available through local music stores too.

Before hiring your tutor, always:

  • Obtain quotes from a minimum of 3 teachers and clarify what they teach.
  • Review feedback about them on Google and the Lessons site.
  • Request a reference list of their past students.
  • Ask fellow parents about their children's experiences with the tutor.
  • Secure a written agreement and schedule prior to the first session.
  • Make small initial payments to gauge the tutor's compatibility before committing to a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a classical guitar teacher?

  • How many years have you been teaching classical guitar?
  • Could I have a trial lesson to see if your teaching method works for me?

  • Which model of acoustic guitar should I purchase?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice is required?
  • What type of strings are best for beginners?
  • Which books should I buy for learning classical guitar?
  • Can you accommodate different learning styles?
  • What essentials should I bring to class, and how long is each session?
  • Can I have a written copy of our class schedule?
  • What is your policy for missed classes?
  • Am I allowed to suggest songs that I would like to learn?

Reviews for Westland classical guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Westland area.
Ed H.
Grant is a great instructor! His knowledge about playing and his passion for helping others learn is inspiring. He has a broad and deep understanding of musical theory and integrates it seamlessly into pragmatic application. His great guitar playing, singing, joking, and student empathy all contribute to great lesson experiences. Grant has an uncanny ability to meet students where they are, factor in their aspirations, personalize his approaches, and help them consistently advance. I’m learning at a good pace, enjoying the journey and becoming increasingly confident. I would highly recommend Grant, particularly to adults who have become interested in playing guitar.
