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. So to me, being a member of the last generation to learn from these great musicians, I feel I have a special need to pass on their tradition both musically and culturally....

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 Westland guitar teachers

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.

Kevin began teaching our granddaughter in January 2015. She loves piano...and Kevin's instruction has developed that passion! Not only is he highly skilled in teaching her about music theory, and the skills for playing the piano - but he is kind, patient and very, very encouraging! He is also her awesome voice teacher! We couldn't be happier! Thank you, Kevin!

Marc has been teaching my 11 year old son for about a year and a half. My son really likes going to lessons. Marc has engaged with my son where it makes him want to go to lessons and enjoys learning the guitar. I would recommend Marc to anyone looking for a guitar teacher.
