I offer a unique approach to guitar and lessons in general.  I don't believe in a linear process in my method of teaching, however I do believe that learning fundamentals such as sight reading, music theory and understanding/learning about chord structures and harmony are very helpful tools to better express yourself as an artist. I will focus on your goals and helping you reach them. Whether you are looking to write your own music, arrange for different instruments, play songs you love on guitar, learn solos, develop your own sound/voice.

I have been teaching for over 10 years. I teach privately full-time and run my own company. I personally hire other enthusiastic and experienced music teachers to work with me. I believe learning music should be fun. While it also takes hard work and dedication, a student must first enjoy music in order to continue and progress. My teachers and I incorporate well-known songs into lessons so that students can relate to what they are learning. We also use many of our own games and worksheets to keep students engaged at all times. We offer many different types of lessons including voice, piano, guitar, and songwriting.  ... View Profile

My service stands out because I have successfully taught people who previously failed with other teachers. For example, my plumber came to fix a leak while I was finishing up a lesson. I asked him if he ever thought of playing guitar. He said he actually took guitar lessons from two teachers but he failed. He quit and he decided guitar wasn't a thing he could do. So I said take some lessons with me. I'll give you a free lesson right now. He took the lesson and he came back for many more and he got really good. He could play many complicated songs and solos too. So the teacher really does make a big difference. ... View Profile

My teaching approach: My teaching approach really depends on the student. I don't know what they need until we meet. But some things are across the board. I feel that technical skills are necessary tools for getting you where you want to go. Scales, chord shapes and arpeggios are very important to being able to get around on a guitar. I also like to teach students to apply Indian vocal rhythms (tala) to guitar.

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.

Mount Vernon Guitar Instruction

Will Flaherty · Mount Vernon, NY


Featured Instructor

Looking for a guitar teacher in Mount Vernon who can teach you anything from strumming a few chords to shredding at the speed of light (or sound)? Then we suggest that you check out the profile of Will Flaherty where you’ll not only see Will’s video, but how he describes his approach to teaching you the guitar.

Mount Vernon Guitarist and Guitar Teacher Extraordinaire Will Flaherty

“My lessons are based on your goals. Learning to play guitar should be a fun and rewarding experience, not a miserable one that feels like work! Do you want to shred, learn scales/modes, music theory, or just strum a few chords and play a few songs? My goal is your enjoyment in learning and reaching the goals you have for yourself. I will never force a student to learn anything they’re not interested in studying.”

And, because Will’s approach is fun, enjoyable, and geared to the goals of his guitar students, it doesn’t mean that he isn’t intent and serious about his music or his guitar teaching. We think you’ll agree when you read this description of an ideal guitar student:

“Anyone with a desire to play the instrument! Any playing ability from beginner to advanced. Beginners can learn from the ground up and advanced players can fill in the gaps in their knowledge.”

With guitar and music influences ranging from Pantera and Megadeath to Mozart and Muddy Waters, Will presents a compelling argument for how working with him on your guitar playing could be just the ticket for your music and guitar playing. Why not check out his profile to find out for yourself?
