Chase Craven Guitar Lessons

Chase Craven Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: I usually sit down and talk to the student for a few minutes to figure out what their immediate and long-term goal with the instrument are. After that is established, I like to start with the foundations of music theory and basic guitar technique. After the student has begun to acquire a basic command of the instrument, we move into learning songs. I let the student choose the songs and music they want to learn, while occasionally assigning songs of my choosing which I feel would help the student reach his/her musical goals. The student will be sent home with materials to practice with. My influences are: My influences ... View Profile

I teach music theory, and voice too. I have been playing off and on professionally now for about 10 years. I am 26, and as a performer, I am addicted. I am teaching now to help others, especially kids, learn to jam with other people. It's a lost art as most musicians don't understand theory these days, and most of them have no idea what it means to listen and work with to other people. Things I focus on: -Well rounded Musicianship -Organized practice sessions -Chord, and scale theory -Reading music and tablature -Basic Piano lessons to learn theory -Voice Lessons (For those who want to sing and play) -Improv, and the ability to play "on t ...

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.
