40 years of playing. 20 years teaching and I teach to make it fun, exciting and relaxing at the same time. Homework and practice is necessary as well as patience and determination. Dedicating to practice makes perfect! I look at it as passing down a gift I have so others may enjoy it as much as I have. Do what you love ❤️

We specialize in teaching kids ages 5 and up music through the guitar. Our students become musicians, they understand how to read music, how to interpert it, and make the guitar say something. Watching the magical moments of learning happen! Everyday I get to help kids make great connections with music and their instrument. Often teaching music is more than just teaching music. You can see what I mean on our social pages @childbloomscc and @childbloomstl on Facebook.

HELLO :-) I have been a guitarist and worked in bands over 50 years and have sung all my life. I learned the hard way (after losing my voice at a gig) what to do to keep my singing voice in shape and have a three-and-a-half octave range to work with. I play in several groups in St. Louis and Illinois and love what i do - and paople react to that. I have also been a voice-over recording artist for many scenarios. I love to share my knowledge and experience with those wanting to learn an achieve more with their talents.

I am very laid-back, very well rounded and very open minded. I start with the basics then I actually have a few tricks of the trade that will make it more interesting a lot quicker and keep you interested. And as they say practice makes perfect you do have to practice, but I tried to keep it fun. I’ve been playing for 40 years.

Michael H. says, "Kung Fu Music Lessons has helped to me become a better electric bass guitar player and musician. Jared's Kung Fu Music Lesson curriculum has helped me further my music theory knowledge and understand how the fretboard on a bass guitar neck is laid out. After taking lessons from Jared, for slightly over a year, my bass playing has improved exponentially and I've been able to earn money from playing my bass guitar. Not, to mention understanding the underpinnings of music theory and how to navigate the bass guitar neck has allowed me to tap into new musical ideas and has made playing bass guitar more enjoyable and fun."

I have a BSE bachelor of science in education. I am certified to teach kindergarten through high school music. After getting my degree in music education in 1991, I have taught in a variety of capacities, including a Baptist academy, public school, several Catholic schools, and home school academy. I have taught strings, as well as middle school and high school band, and middle school and high school choir. I have also taught swing choir and jazz band. The school system puts unrealistic demands on teachers, and in 2021, I decided that it was time to stop teaching in school and music studios and move to a studio in my house. I have had s

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?
