I teach that playing music is FUN and it's something that will be with an individual for their entire life! Learning to play an instrument and practicing over time teaches valuable life long lessons such as preparation, perseverance and commitment.  I have been fortunate enough to share the stage with both past and present members of some of the world’s top bands and/or performers, including Taylor Swift, Brett Eldredge, Randy Bachman, Colin James, Tom Coch ...

"Were it left to artists to choose titles  most would choose none." - Julia Cameron  author "The Artist's Way"  Music, and all art in essence, is all about communication - with your audience and with other artists. What's that mean when you're just starting out? It means that your approach to music should involve learning what the other musicians in your band are doing. For example, what sort of chords should you play on guitar if your bass player is playing a funky slap line?  I'm a graduate of Berklee College of Music and a multi instrumentalist. Coming from a musical family (you may have even heard of my grandfather), I ... View Profile

I teach all styles of guitar to students of all ages and skill levels. I aspire to help my students reach whatever goals they may have with the guitar, whether they’re just getting started or they have specific goals or styles they want to explore. I now specialize in playing classical music but like many classical guitarists I got started on the guitar playing rock and roll, so I’m very comfortable working in that style, as well as up to intermediate level jazz and blues.  My academic background in music has also prepared me to impart a general knowledge of music theory and form to my students, which is valuable in all music ...

My approach is skill-oriented and my students are trained to be able to read music, sound out songs, write their own songs, and so on.

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.

Las Vegas Guitar Lessons

(78 reviews)

Las Vegas Guitar Instruction


You’re in good company when your city has the iconic Hard Rock Café guitar and a Jimi Hendrix 1963 Strat guitar on display. The Las Vegas Philharmonic is Southern Nevada's only professional symphony orchestra, and if your child hones his classical guitar skills well enough, he might end up playing in its Youth Concert Series.

Guitar lessons in the past were about getting referrals from friends and looking through the huge Yellow Pages to see which teacher was near you. Thanks to technology, lessons.com has made it so much easier, and you don’t even have to drive in the Las Vegas heat to have each guitar lesson. Simply find a teacher who you think might be a good fit on the app and have him or her come to your house once a week. You can also pick an on-location guitar teacher and join group or private lessons near your home.

If you don’t see a teacher you think will work out, hire an online teacher. We have numerous guitar teachers who teach private lessons through Skype, and as an added bonus, many of them also teach additional classes like voice, piano, songwriting and music theory. You can combine two lessons into one.

If you’d like a Vegas “big full” experience at finding a guitar teacher for you, simply enter your zip code, hit “Go,” and you’ll see our list of available guitar teachers that fit the bill.
