Patricia B. says, "I wanted an instructor who focused on the instrument and music theory, not genre. And that’s exactly what I got. Mr. Joel is patient and understanding. He is also quite honestly supportive. Now, I can play the guitar, read music, know what I’m playing in tabs and figure out progressions by ear. So, I’m a happy student. Really, I am a guitarist.🙌🏽" Read more

Ted B. says, "John is not only an excellent guitarist, but he also has great pedagogical intuition, which is no doubt influenced by his own extensive experience being taught by world-class guitarists. Despite considering myself to be a pretty good self-learner, John has been able on numerous occasions to point out and help me eliminate various subtle inefficiencies in the motion of both my left and right hands, which has led to more fluidity and less flubbing in my playing. The result is a more enjoyable playing experience with less frustration, as well as more freedom to focus on artistic interpretation. I can't recommend John highly enough." Read more

Your electric guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do electric guitar lessons cost near me?

Electric guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session with lengths of 30 to 60 minutes each. Private tuition costs $45 to $70 per hour, while group sessions are more wallet-friendly at $25 to $35 per class.

  • For ongoing classes, you'll pay $170 to $315 per month with the prepaid discount.
  • Online lessons cost anywhere from $35 to $55 per hour and let you jam with a teacher from the comfort of your own home.

Are electric guitar lessons worth it?

Electric guitar lessons are worth it if you want to learn more at a faster pace, develop a better technique, and get customized instructions to improve your style. Only an experienced electric guitar player can understand how to help you improve, so don't settle for a general guitar instructor.

What age is good to start electric guitar lessons?

A good age for kids to start electric guitar lessons is from 6 to 10 years old. Another indication they're ready to learn is whenever they're physically able to hold the guitar and have the hand strength to press the strings.

Adults of all ages can also start electric guitar lessons at any time. With the right guidance and consistent practice, anyone can master the electric guitar.

How many lessons does it take to learn electric guitar?

The number of lessons it takes you to learn electric guitar depends on your goals and how much time you dedicate to practicing those epic solos. Playing a simple tune might take 2 to 6 months of weekly classes.

If you're aiming to rock out like a pro, expect a time investment of 4 to 10 years.

Are acoustic and electric guitar lessons the same?

Acoustic and electric guitar lessons aren't the same because these are two entirely different instruments with unique equipment features.

Learning to play electric guitar requires:

  • Knowing how to use an amplifier and pedals that create sound effects
  • Understanding how to adjust the speaker connection
  • Knowledge of genres like rock, metal, blues, and jazz
  • Special techniques like power chords, palm muting, and string bending

Learning to play an acoustic guitar means you focus on classical, folk, country, pop, or blues music. A pick is optional in acoustic lessons, and you don't need amplifiers or cables. Acoustic teachers also place more emphasis on fingerpicking patterns.

How do I find the best electric guitar lessons near me?

You can find the best electric guitar lessons nearby to suit your needs by checking out our teacher listings her on the Lessons website. Your local music stores are also great places to start when scouting for the best guitar instructors.

Before making a decision, you should:

  • Compare prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Check out their reviews on Google and Lessons.
  • Request for a references list of past students to verify their track record.
  • Ask for opinions from other parents on what their kids think of the teacher.
  • Obtain a written schedule and contract before the first lesson.
  • Pay for a couple of sessions to see what you think before fully committing to a month's worth of lessons.

Ask potential electric guitar teacher these questions before hiring:

  • Did you study music in school, and what qualifications did you earn?
  • How long have you been teaching electric guitar?
  • Can I sample a lesson to gauge if your teaching style suits me?
  • What's the average age of your students?
  • What type of electric guitar would you recommend for me?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice should I put in?
  • What resources or books would you recommend for learning electric guitar?
  • Can you adapt your teaching methodology if I'm struggling with a concept?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long does each session last?

Without a doubt Mrs. Salmon is one of the best music teachers in South Jersey! Mrs. Salmon is teaching my daughter to play the guitar. Right away my daughter started learning to play. My daughter was in the 4th grade and started playing with the 5th grade band. Mrs. Salmon is very patient and dedicated to her students. She is also very reasonable with her prices for lessons. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to play any instrument.

Adam has a very easy-going demeanor and tailored his lessons to my needs. As someone who has played off and on for many years, I wanted to focus on clearing out bad habits and cleaning up my technique. He has helped me put together a practice routine that has worked wonders so far. Plus he has a wealth of knowledge about playing and gigging, and freely shares this information. I thoroughly enjoy working with him.

John is an excellent teacher. Even though I have only had a few lessons with him, he has made a major impact on my playing. First, he improved my tone by carefully analyzing my fingernail shape and how I was striking the strings, and then showing me how to file my nails more effectively, The difference is tone was amazing. He then came up with new fingerings for some Bach and Borroso pieces I was working on that made difficult passages easier to play as well as more musical sounding. John also made other recommendations for phrasing and highlighting the melody lines, which came from his careful listening to my playing. Between lessons, he was available for lengthy email discussions and he send me PDFs of music I requested. Finally, John is very warm, personable, and approachable, and he offers critiques and recommendations in a matter-of-fact, generous manner that makes it easy to hear. He is also willing to share his own struggles with the classical guitar, which is disarming and reassuring. Oh-- and BTW he is an excellent player! I've loved listening to him play either live or in videos.
