Quentin L. says, "I played guitar 15 + years ago some and never took it as serious as I do now. When I was looking for lessons, I found Matt on lessons.com. We chatted back and forth and gratefully he accepted to teach me how to play electric guitar. We are 2 months in and he has taught me so much in such a small amount of time! Matt is very patient and very helpful on any method, and has all the tips and tricks you can possibly think of! He also gives me help when it’s not even our day for teaching. If you are searching for a teacher then Matt is your guy! Highly recommended!!!" Read more

Your Guitar Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do guitar lessons cost near me?

Guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per lesson, depending on if they last 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. If it's a one-on-one lesson, it'll cost around $45 to $70 hourly. Learning guitar in a group is cheaper at $25 to $35 per session.

If you're taking lessons every month, it adds up to $170 to $315 with the typical prepaid discount.

Are guitar lessons worth it?

Guitar lessons are worth it since only a professional teacher giving you live feedback can guide you to learn faster. A good instructor helps you understand your mistakes and prevents you from developing bad habits.

Learning guitar by yourself takes a lot longer and won't prepare you as well to play in public.

At what age should I start guitar lessons?

Children can start guitar lessons from the ages of 6 to 10, or when they can comfortably hold the guitar and press the strings. Adults can start guitar lessons at any age, provided they practice regularly and patiently.

How many guitar lessons do I need?

The number of guitar lessons you need varies according to your goal and your practice routine. For many people, it typically takes about 2 to 6 months to play a simple tune. Mastering the guitar like a professional can take anywhere from 4 to 10 years.

What do you learn in guitar lessons?

In most guitar lessons, you can expect to learn:

  • How to correctly position your fingers to play chords
  • How to tune your guitar
  • How to play various scales
  • New techniques for plucking and strumming
  • How to read sheet music.

Are online guitar lessons good?

Online guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour and are good for getting personal instruction from skilled teachers worldwide. Take advantage of flexible scheduling and immediate feedback while learning new guitar-playing styles. Plus, you can easily record lessons to review their advice later.

How do I find the best guitar lessons near me?

In order to find the best guitar lessons for you, look through nearby teachers listed here on the Lessons website. You can also ask for teachers at local music stores or community colleges.

Before you hire a guitar teacher, make sure to:

  • Check out prices from at least 3 different teachers.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for a list of their current or previous students that you can talk to.
  • Talk to other parents about the teacher's reputation with their children.
  • Make sure you get a written agreement and schedule before your first lesson.
  • Avoid making a big payment upfront for a month of lessons until you're comfortable with the teacher.

What questions do I ask when choosing a guitar teacher?

To find the right guitar teacher, you can ask them these questions:

  • What kind of music degree do you have?
  • How many years of experience do you have in teaching guitar?
  • Can I have a free trial lesson to see if your teaching style helps me?
  • What is the average age of your students?
  • Will you assign me finger exercises as homework?
  • How often should I practice between lessons?
  • What textbooks do I need, and where can I buy used ones?
  • How many guitar-playing styles are you an expert in?
  • Can you modify your teaching style to suit my learning abilities?
  • What should I bring to our lessons, and how long is each one?
  • Can I get a copy of our schedule, agreement, and payment terms?
  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a class due to an emergency?
  • Can I choose some of my favorite songs to learn on the guitar?

Jon is a very pleasant guy. Smart as a whip, when it comes to a beginner. And in only half of an hour, learned a ton. Thanks Jon !

Chuck is a professional teacher, musician and performer. My grandson is even more inspired to play saxophone since Chuck has been teaching him. We are grateful to have such a talented teacher for our grandson!!!

I was first impressed by his quick response to my original inquiry, his thoroughness in answering my initial questions and his desire to completely understand my goals and aspirations for taking lessons. He also has been diligent to clear up early miscommunications and has made every effort to make sure I'm 100% satisfied with his services. I do recommend him and Frankie without reservation.

Shadybrook Music Studio is great! Kevin is a great teacher not just because he understands guitar (which he certainly does), nor just because he is friendly and kind (though he absolutely is), but because he also understands student motivation and how to sequence learning so that playing guitar is fun, never overwhelming, and yet skill can improve systematically. As a teacher myself, Kevin knows what he's doing!
