You may not know this - or never stopped to think about it - but two people can pick up the same exact guitar, plug it into the exact same amp, strum the same chord, but achieve different results. Additionally, a person who has never played an instrument and has zero understanding of music theory can't tell you how to play their favorite song, but chances are they can tell if you're playing it wrong. These concepts are why music is the universal language. In the first scenario: no two people will ever have identical voices and use identical vocabulary. In the second: even if a person doesn't understand the language you're speaking they...

I found my love for singing when I was very young. I would sing in my school's choirs and production because performance gave me a great rush, which makes music worth it. I want to helpe people find that rush or passion and help them make it to the best of their abilities and mine. I have been singing since I could talk and had the biggest aspirations to be a big pop star. I was trained in singing and piano from a child all the way to when I reached middle school. After I decided I wanted to take up a new instrument which is my second favorite instument, next to singing, the guitar. I took guitar lessond from 6th grade until I reached 9th gra

Shannon W. says, "Celeste has been an awesome teacher! I actually first contacted her for my son, but I was getting a little ahead of myself. My son is not even 2! :) So she encouraged me to take lessons as it would be great for when my son is finally old enough. I'm so glad I signed up. I've been wanting to take lessons for a long time anyway. She's super patient and goes at my pace, and really funny! :) I always walk away feeling like I've progressed and have clear instructions on what I need to work on. I really recommend her!" 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?
