Curtis Stith Music

My name is Curtis Stith. I'm a professional musician and music teacher. I do in-home lessons for kids and adults. My teaching philosophy is to foster and protect the joy that is inherent in music, especially in children. I use resources and teaching methods that keep students engaged, and interested, so that they can learn in ways they enjoy. I also strive to teach kids how to take initiative in their own learning experience, and over time I work towards achieving a lesson that is directed more and more by the student, as they become more comfortable being responsible for their musical education. When I was taking music lessons myself, I ... View Profile

Mike Buckley Music

Mike Buckley Music

I have made it my mission to be a well-rounded musician and person. I believe that your life experiences in terms of travel, history, art, and personal relationships are a huge factor in learning more about music. I taught myself guitar as an early teenager, but soon after started taking private lessons with a great musician and later friend. Many of my teaching methods are based off how he taught me and prepared me for music school. I attended many clinics in high school, performed in the jazz combo for which I received the Louis Armstrong award, and performed with my own rock band outside of school at various clubs and outdoor events in tow ...

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.
