My teaching approach: At 17, I was in a band with seasoned musicians that honed me into lead guitar and vocals and a path to a metal group Birthright who went on to open for national acts like Bride, Precious Death and Motley Crue. Im currently a lead guitarist and back up vocals for a national touring group Kick, The INXS Experience. With over 30 years performing and teaching guitar I use my wealth of experience to bring the best out of my students from beginners to even the well advanced players.

Mary L. says, "I started taking lessons from Leslie 3 years ago and have been going to her weekly ever since. She is extremely thoughtful and attentive when it comes to skill development. She teaches through working with you one on one on songs YOU choose, which in my opinion made me more driven to practice. Her love for and knowledge of music is infectious. I can honestly say that during my time with Leslie she has made me confident in my newly developed skills and encouraged me to showcase them. I highly recommend Leslie as not only a teacher but a mentor as well." Read more

After teaching about ten years, I can definitely say I have found the right way to do things. Or should I say ways. Every guitar student seems to have their own unique talent. We learn this as performers and teachers. I see it as a bandleader. There is just not a one size fits all approach. My focus is on confidence and performance. We start playing day one, focusing on flow and then learning the theory behind it as time goes one. I love breaking down even simple tunes to help students understand music a little better, but keeping the focus on the actual performance. I get to work with people, funny people, smart people, hard workin...

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?

Reviews for Greenville guitar teachers

Recent success stories from people in the Greenville area.
Michelle B.
Lesley has made such a difference for my daughter. Before we found Lesley, my daughter was playing the guitar occasionally without much passion. After she started lessons with her, she has found herself and really loves it! Lesley is an extremely talented musician and has been an inspiration to her. She helps my daughter learn to play what she loves and encourages her. My daughter tells her what songs she likes and Lesley prepares lessons based on her interests. Lesley has a warm, vibrant, caring personality that is attractive to both children and adults. If you are interested in learning to play as a beginner or if you have been playing for a long time, she would be a perfect choice! We would highly recommend her!
