Patricia B. says, "I wanted an instructor who focused on the instrument and music theory, not genre. And that’s exactly what I got. Mr. Joel is patient and understanding. He is also quite honestly supportive. Now, I can play the guitar, read music, know what I’m playing in tabs and figure out progressions by ear. So, I’m a happy student. Really, I am a guitarist.🙌🏽" Read more

Students always take a role in guiding their lessons from day one. I've been teaching students of all ages and all backgrounds for over 30 years. My greatest thrills have been to see my students succeed in their endeavors, including their own performances, auditions, competition and those beyond their musical endeavors. I have also been thrilled to have multiple generations of the same families return to my studio. I've recenently had several students return to sign their own children up for lessons!!...

  • Learning unique techniques like string bending, slides, and vibrato

Children can start blues guitar lessons between the ages of 6 to 10 years old at the earliest. The best time is whenever they can hold the instrument easily and have the hand strength to press on the strings.

Adults of all ages can learn to play blues guitar with the right instruction and regular practice.

How many blues guitar lessons do I need?

The number of blues guitar lessons you need all depends on what you're aiming for and how long you practice. Beginners typically learn how to play a simple song in 2 to 6 months on average. However, mastering blues guitar takes at least 4 to 10 years.

How do I find the best blues guitar lessons near me?

  • Check prices from 3 different teachers and ask what they'll teach you.
  • Read what others said about them on Google and on the Lessons website.
  • Ask for a list of other people they've taught to see if they're good.
  • For kids, ask other moms and dads what their kids say about the teacher.
  • Get a plan on paper about when your lessons will be before you start.
  • Pay a little at first to see if you like the teacher before you pay for a whole month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a blues guitar teacher?

To find the best guitar teacher, you could ask these questions:

  • What type of music degree do you have?
  • How long have you been teaching blues guitar?
  • Can I have one lesson for free to see how I like it?
  • What are the ages of most of your students?
  • Which kind of blues guitar and equipment should I buy to practice with?
  • Will you give me some finger patterns to practice at home?
  • How much should I practice at home between lessons?
  • What books should I get, and do you know where I could find used ones?
  • How many different blues guitar techniques can you teach?
  • If I'm struggling with learning, can you change the way you teach me?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long is each lesson?

  • If I have an urgent problem and need to cancel, what happens?
  • Can I choose some songs that I want to learn?

Without a doubt Mrs. Salmon is one of the best music teachers in South Jersey! Mrs. Salmon is teaching my daughter to play the guitar. Right away my daughter started learning to play. My daughter was in the 4th grade and started playing with the 5th grade band. Mrs. Salmon is very patient and dedicated to her students. She is also very reasonable with her prices for lessons. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to play any instrument.

I have been getting guitar lessons with Bryan for over two years. As a forty something year old, who can be very stuck in his ways, Bryan has been abundantly patient with my slow learning process. He is thoroughly knowledgable of the guitar, adapts to my learning curve, finds real life examples that helps move me along in the right direction. So very thankful I decided to go with Bryan as my teacher. He does the music world good simply being the kind of teacher he is.
