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 teaching approach: I start with what the student is interested in as an entry point to the instrument. Using that we learn basic techniques of the guitar (how to hold it, how to finger the notes, how to hold the pick and/or position the fingers, etc.). I teach reading music but only if the student desires it. The student will receive a comprehensive knowledge of the instrument and of music in general. My influences are: Chuck Berry, BB King, George Harrison, Frank Zappa, George Benson, Emily Remler, Robert Fripp, Sonny Sharrock, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Jimmy Page, Larry Coryell, etc. My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's ...

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

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.

New Rochelle Guitar Instruction

Jason Priset · New Rochelle, NY


Featured Instructor

One thing we’ve noticed in the evolution of FindaGuitarTeacher.com is the seriousness, sincerity, and dedication of so many of the guitar teachers signing up.

Learn Guitar! Jason Priset Gives Acoustic, Electric, and Classical Guitar Lessons in New Rochelle, New York

One such example is Jason Priset, who is teaching guitar in his studio in New Rochelle, NY or in the homes of students in the surrounding area. Take a look at Jason’s profile, where you’ll see the following, and we know you’ll be thinking the same thing we are:

“My philosophy as a teacher is to use the skills and experience that I have acquired over the years and to try and pass that on to my students. I think reading notation is equally as important as reading tablature, and I emphasize both during lessons. As I have studied the guitar to the highest level (a Doctorate in classical guitar) I also understand the importance of a good education, regardless of the style. I’ve had performance experience in many styles including; classical, jazz, rock, pop, folk, blues, and christian/gospel.”

Jason’s approach speaks to what is required to learn guitar, and the professional background upon which he draws to create guitar lessons for his acoustic, electric, and classical guitar students is equally impressive. But if we go on, then there’d be no reason for you to look at Jason’s full profile, which we hope you’ll use as a great tool to remove the unreliable guesswork from the process of finding just the right guitar teacher for you, your son, or your daughter.

We think Jason Priset is more than a step in the right direction.
