We feel that learning music should be fun. We base our teaching on songs and having fun. Most teachers focus on scales, chords, and theory - which while important, is decidedly not fun. We find that if we make the process enjoyable, and link the learning to music that the student enjoys, that they in time will learn the scales, chords, and theory as they progress. We believe that great music teachers can change lives. Getting to work with students of all ages to develop talents that in some cases, they didn't even know existed, is a rewarding career....

I am an internationally known artist, have notable works in the genres of Rock, Metal, and Symphonic music. I want to help beginning to advanced guitarists be as great as they aim to be. I'm a pretty laid back person and am very easy to get along with, which is of course always a nice bonus. I get very happy seeing my students experience gratification and creative inspiration!

I have been enjoying the electric guitar since 2003. It's now 2020 and everyday I continue to learn new techniques. Combining that experience with my day job as a coach/teacher, I will establish a solid connection that will ensure the rewarding gift of playing the guitar. Every lesson will be different for each student. None of us are exactly the same. That being said we go at a comfortable pace making sure each basic skill is mastered before we move on to the next. I enjoy coaching and love playing the guitar. What better job could there be? Any distance outside of 30 miles will require video/skype lessons....

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?

Donna Carlin is a wonderful music teacher and Children's Music Academy was a great place to start my children's musical education! The curriculum is fantastic and the group setting makes it so much fun! My children learned to play the piano and got introduced to the recorder and guitar, they were taught a lot of music theory and it was reinforced with games in the classroom, they played solo's in their classes and got very comfortable performing for others and I attended class with them so we had a special musical date each week- so much fun! Now that they are older (ages 13-21) all three are wonderful singers and they love music and have had so many great experiences singing with choirs, bands, an opera- and who knows what's to come? I attribute much of their success to the musical foundation that was laid by Donna Carlin at Children's Music Academy!
