Ella J. says, "Gabrielle is a teacher who genuinely cares about all of her students. She has been one of the best teachers I have ever had and actually helped me learn something. She advocated for me and helped get me the scholarship that allowed me to go to the music school in the first place. I have always felt like she believes in me and wants the best for me (even when I kept forgetting all my sheet music cause I didn’t have a binder) she never got angry at me. Instead she encouraged me to do better and to learn and grow. Her and her family have shown nothing but kindness to me and I can honestly say the impact of my lessons have been massive on my life. To anyone who is thinking of started music classes I recommend it completely, you never know how art can heal you. " Read more

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 Asheville guitar teachers

Recent success stories from people in the Asheville area.
Kerry S.
As an adult beginning student, I was looking for a teacher who 1) is kind 2) wouldn’t force me to perform in a recital(!) and most importantly 3) is PATIENT. Gabrielle is all of that and more. Two and a half years after starting lessons with her, I am still amazed by and appreciative of her patience and encouragement. She has a natural gift for both teaching and music, and has a very calming presence that I imagine would make her especially wonderful with children as well.

I took some fiddle lessons in high school, but wanted to learn tunes without relying as heavily on sheet music. Jennifer listened to where I was at with the fiddle, and what I hoped to learn, and focuses the lessons around that. We meet weekly for lessons which happen entirely on zoom, which works well for my schedule. Jennifer is so friendly, I have had a great time improving my fiddle skills.

Annie is so very easy to work with. She quickly creates a comfortable “learning without intimidating” atmosphere. Early in the session she sizes up your strengths and weaknesses and integrates them into to her teaching process. I’m looking forward to the next lesson.
