I retired from Computer Software Development in 2020 during the hype of the Covid-19 pandemic. My family and I have lived in Nebraska since 1978. We lived in Lincoln, Omaha, Washington State and now here in Plattsmouth Nebraska. I have been married for over 40 years. We have four girls. We have eight grandchildren. Since I was 14 years old my primary passion always has been Classical Guitar. Though some of my music have found their ways on YouTube through church performance, I usually do not do a lot on social media. I always had a goal of passing my knowledge of the guitar when I retire. This is your chance. It is never too late to learn.

Stephen E. says, "My family and I moved to Omaha from New Jersey ten years ago and found ourselves in need of an expert piano instructor for our children. My wife and I have nine children and believe that music in a important element in a well rounded, early education. So, we've had experience with a number of music professionals over the course of our family life. There have been good ones, and so-so-good ones, and I can freely admit that Mr. Soh is the best. Why? He does an excellent job teaching basic skills as a foundation. My older daughter Stephanie told us that even though she had studied under two other instructors prior to Mr. Soh, it was under his guidance that she truly began to fully understand the art of piano. Mr. Soh takes the time and effort to share his very significant talent and knowledge with his students. He cares about them, and wants to provide them the building blocks they will need to develop their skills over a lifetime. It is important to recognize that it is not always easy to teach young people how to read and play music; there are always so many distractions. Through his persistence and patience Mr. Soh always finds a way to communicate and educate his students, and to help them reach their full potential as musicians. I have know Ken for ten years and recommend him highly and without reservation. He is a good man and any student would be privileged to have him as a teacher of piano. " 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.

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?
