I believe that each of our lives is a story being told. I believe that music is a language that can communicate the full spectrum of human expression to other people or just to oneself. It is my goal to know each student and customize lessons to them so that every student is equipped to write the next paragraph of their story. I believe that this can have a benefit to other areas of life and make a person better holistically. I have been playing music for 15+ years including 5 years of leading church music and teaching lessons. The last two years, teaching has been my primary income. I have a B.A. In Music from the University of Northwester ... View Profile

Christopher Harvey's Guitar Lessons

Christopher Harvey's Guitar Lessons

The first thing I ask any student is "What do you want to accomplish?" Your intent needs to be clear, to me and especially to yourself. Is your goal just to sound decent around a campfire with some friends, or to have a stellar performance at a large and formal venue? Who do you want to sound like? Do you want to do your own writing, or just primarily covers? What musical artists are your primary influence?  Together, we can learn songs by your favorite artists, and help you write something in a similar vain, but with your own unique flare of creativity. A lot of instructors are afraid to refer their students to other sources of (free) ... 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.
