I attended the UNCG School of Music in Greensboro, North Carolina and have taught guitar and bass locally for over 20 years. I've been teaching beginner ukulele after tutoring students on it last year at my children's school.  I was a member of the UNCG Jazz Ensemble and Greensboro Jazz Band. During my time at UNCG I studied both classical and jazz guitar. Whether someone wants to start at the very beginning and learn to read music, learn tabs, brush up on their chops or learn a specific song for an audition or performance, I direct the lessons specific to the students need. Many of my students have gone on to attend performing art ... View Profile

Swanson Guitar Lessons

Swanson Guitar Lessons

  My philosophy on guitar instruction is to ensure that the student learns all the tools necessary to achieve their personal goals and most importantly… to have fun doing it. It also stems from various experiences that I’ve gone through in my lifetime and from the 30+ years of learning, playing, touring and teaching the guitar professionally. I was once a student myself and I never forget that simple fact. Over the 22 years of instructing, I’ve taught hundreds of students. Every student is different in that the way they learn. I focus on and treat each student as an individual, focusing on their level of learning. Whi ... View Profile

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.
