From a musical family, I've played music for over twenty-two years, classically trained on piano at the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, and studied Jazz Piano at Metropolitan State University of Denver. I've played guitar for 15 years, in blues, rock, and flamenco groups, as a solo artist, and also studied jazz on the instrument. I've studied voice wi ... View Profile

I am a founding member of the band Good Old War and current touring guitar player for singer/songwriter, Joshua Radin.

The tenet of my model is to do good work. For example, I formed music-related ventures which tend to benefit not just Musician's, but people in general. I set up mobile music cafés in New York and Washington, DC where artists perform and folks get to sit, enjoy music and eat for free. (No kidding).  Specifically here, now that I am teaching, I believe there are few gifts greater than that of music. Listening is cool enough. But knowing how to create music is a whole other wonderful level. Teaching it to others is to participate correctly in the universe. (But that's a whole other conversation. Ha) ... View Profile

Learning guitar is one of the best things I've ever done and sharing that experience with others is just pure fun for me. I've been teaching for several years and I'd love to do it as much as possible.  My teaching theory revolves around SONGS picked out by the student and making sure they stay engaged and have FUN. The most important thing about learning guitar is that the student is still playing a year from now, not that they know every scale and chord in existence.  So if you want to become a musician quickly and learn to play your favorite songs I would love to be your teacher! ...

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.
