I taught guitar for many years in Memphis, TN. My bands played many of the local establishments and I met a lot of famous people( no name dropping it's not my style) and did get a chance to play with them on occasion. I got my first guitar when I was 4 and played my first show when I was 10. I teach mainly by ear but do utilize tab to make things simpler to start out. My motto is learn to hear in color not read black and white. I look forward to hearing from all of you. ... View Profile

Craig Ramby Music

Craig Ramby Music

My name is Craig Ramby, i am twenty years old and i have been playing the guitar, both acoustic and electric, for as long as i can remember, easily most of my life. My philosophy is that the only way to teach someone an instrument as complex as the guitar is if they are as willing and as passionate about the subject as possible, because you can lead a horse to water, but you cant make it drink as the old cliche goes, and i want to share my skill with people that understand it, or people that want to understand it and need a helping hand to show them what to do, ive taught five or six of my close friends how to play the guitar and they loved ...

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.
