John Hussmann Guitar Lessons

            I started playing guitar at the age of 10 under the direction of an acomplished student that was part of the Music Program at the University of Evansville, IN. After years of formal lessons and performances, I was invited to be the first guitar player in the 40+ year history of the Evansville's North Green Brigade. That experience led to a request for a slot in the Indiana All  City and All State Jazz ensembles. After my high school years, I began playing in many local groups, traveling bands, and solo endeavors playing Rock, Country, Pop and Blues. At age 24, I began teaching guitar pr ... View Profile

At PCM we stress the importance of teaching all our students (no matter what age or what instrument) how to be well-rounded and knowledgable musicians.  We don't cut corners or teach short-cuts.  Our students learn how to read music, understand rhythm, and develop good technique.  In addition, we want to help our students reach their own goals (not just ours).  So if a student wants to learn a certain style of music or prepare for a school talent show, we are always more than happy to incorporate those skills into their lessons. ...

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.
