Y.Chang says, "My experience with Sam Kang was really beneficial to me. I came into the first class without holding a guitar once ever before, but Sam Kang was so patient and smart in his methods of teaching me that I knew how to play really hard (and uncomfortable) chords right away! I would thoroughly recommend him to any beginners looking for a very kind and thorough guitar teacher!" Read more

Your Online Guitar Lessons questions, answered

How much do online guitar lessons cost near me?

Online guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 hourly. These classes allow one-on-one teaching from teachers all over the world who answer your questions right away. You choose when to have your lessons. Learn to play the guitar in a wide variety of musical genres with the abundance of teachers available.

For comparison, private in-person guitar lessons costs $45 to $70 per hour.

Are online guitar lessons effective?

Online guitar lessons are effective to give you private instructions according to what you need to learn most. These classes require a stable internet connection, a camera, and a microphone.

The benefits of learning to play guitar online include:

  • More flexibility to learn from home and schedule lessons at convenient times
  • Live feedback on your guitar-playing technique
  • Lesson recordings to rewatch later while practicing

Those in the early beginner's stage might need some in-person guitar lessons before continuing their education online. Learning how to tune a guitar is more difficult when a teacher can't physically touch it to help you make adjustments.

How do online guitar lessons work?

Online guitar lessons work by letting you join a live meeting on a video-chat app. Before you log in, go to a room with fast Internet, a lot of light, a camera, a microphone, and no noise or other things to distract you.

During your online guitar lesson, your teacher will:

  • Show you how to sit and hold your guitar
  • Explain ways to correct tuning
  • Play their instrument with you
  • Watch you try new techniques
  • Look at music together with you by sharing their screen
  • Send you files to study through email

How many online guitar lessons do I need?

The number of guitar lessons you need depends on what you want to accomplish and how much you practice. For most people, it takes about 2 to 6 months to play a simple song. The average time it takes to play like a pro is 4 to 10 years.

What is the best age to start online guitar lessons?

The best age for kids to start online guitar lessons is anywhere from 6 to 10 years old, or when they can hold the guitar and press the strings easily. Adults can start learning guitar at any age as long as they practice regularly with a good teacher.

How do I find the best online guitar lessons?

You can find the best online guitar lessons for you with private teachers listed here on the Lessons website. Some local music schools also offer online classes.

Before you choose an online music teacher:

  • Get prices from at least 3 different online music lessons to compare them.

  • Can you change your teaching style to help me learn better?
