Hello Bonjour, I'm Ben and have been playing guitar for about 20 years now and am pretty comfortable around an acoustic and electric. I also really enjoy guitar fx and strange noises!  Along the way I've had some excellent guitar teachers, and even though Youtube totally rocks for learning how to fix your toilet and play a van halen solo, I still see the value in the one-one lessons.   FYI: I am not the flashiest guitar player on the block, but have played on many records and am happy to share helpful tips from those experiences, how to prepare, and the techniques I find most helpful as a session player.  Audio technology ...

Rex Smith's Music Lessons

I like to make things easy instead of going by the book. I play the six string, bass, and drums. It came to me naturally. I learned the drums within three weeks and it took me about six weeks for the guitar. I taught myself bass. I'd like to teach people this and share my success. And what's even better, I ain't expensive.  Contact me for more information! Hoping to hear from you soon.

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.
