Making music is so much fun and joyful, and that's what my teaching focus is. Anyone can play notes on a page whatever the instrument, but are they making music? Learning an instrument takes patience and dedication, so it also helps with life skills. I focus the lessons at the student's pace, so that learning doesn't create pressure or stress. You will learn music theory ( what music is) and we will play duets, so you learn to play with others. Teaching is my passion and my joy. I have been playing over 40 years. The joy of teaching and helping people achieve their musical goals as well as enjoying many styles of music....

Lexi A. says, "So far I have worked with a woman named Jennifer. She has been wonderful. She has an overtly welcoming and helpful energy. My nerves quickly subsided after spending a few minutes talking with her and once I got the first few notes out. She was open to listening to the artists I like and gave me attainable goals to work on over the next so I would not be overwhelmed. This place is exactly what I’ve been needing to satiate my itch for music. " Read more

"Creative Education in Music" At Music People Studios we instruct all popular instruments and Voice. What makes our studio stand out the most is we teach music writing as well as music reading with an emphasis on originality and creativity. Once the student gets through the basics we begin to record the students performances in our fully professional recording studio for sharing with family, friends, to document the students progress and often to publish on iTunes and SoundCloud. I love to see the "ah-ha" moment when students realize they can be proficient, creative and effective doing something they enjoy. Residually they pick up so much abo...

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?
