Are country guitar lessons worth it?

Country guitar lessons are worth it because they teach you how to play like the top country music stars in Nashville. Many playing techniques are specific to this musical style only, so you'll want a teacher who knows this genre well.

In country guitar lessons, you'll learn:

  • How to fingerpick and flat-pick with the right techniques
  • Country licks and the various uses of the major pentatonic scale
  • A range of sub-genres from bluegrass to modern country pop

What's a good age to start country guitar lessons?

A good age for kids to start country guitar lessons is 6 to 10 years old. Otherwise, they can start whenever they're big enough to hold the guitar and press the strings.

Adults of any age can pick up some country guitar skills with a little bit of help from a teacher and plenty of practice.

How many country guitar lessons do I need?

How many country guitar lessons you need depends on what you want to do with your guitar and how much you're willing to practice. If you're just looking to play a simple song, you're looking at about 2 to 6 months of weekly lessons.

However, if you want to strum like the pros, it can take 4 to 10 years of dedication.

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

You can find some of the best country guitar teachers listed right here on the Lessons website or at your local music store.

When you're considering which teacher to hire, you should:

  • Check out prices from at least 3 teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Look up what others have said about them on Google and here on Lessons.
  • Ask them for some student references.
  • Talk to other parents to see what their little ones think about the teacher.
  • Make sure you get a written schedule and agreement before the first lesson.
  • Pay just a little bit at a time to make sure the teacher is right for you before booking a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a country guitar teacher?

Consider asking some of these questions to choose your country guitar teacher:

  • Where did you study music, and do you have any degrees?
  • How long have you been teaching country guitar?
  • Can I try a lesson for free to see if you can help me learn?
  • How old are most of your students?
  • What kind of guitar should I get?
  • Are you going to give me homework, and how much should I be practicing?
  • What books should I buy to learn country guitar?
  • Can you adjust your teaching style if I'm having trouble understanding it?
  • What should I bring to each class, and how long does a session last?
  • Can I get a copy of our class schedule?
  • What happens if I can't make it to a class because something urgent comes up?
  • Can I choose some of my favorite songs to learn?

Easy going, brilliant Instructor. Easily identifies any problems and has given me good feedback and practice regimes. Incredibly punctual and responsive as well has helped make music theory seem less like a far reach subject for myself.
