How It WorksLearn at Your Pace and Your Level... As far as lesson plans I like to build one around each individual student's wants and needs. I like to say that "you are pilot and I am the navigator". Learning material, books and such are chosen after assessing the direction the student wants to go musically. I keep a log of the lessons so I can check on the progress. Many things that might work for me do not work for the student and vice versa. By me keeping an open mind and adapting to this I feel progress is made at a much more rapid pace. I am well versed in the use of written music, music theory, scales [regular and exotics], chord chart ... View Profile

I tailor my teaching methods according to how each student learns. I encourage fun and exploration. I encourage my students that they can do things that seem hard at first, and to give grace to themselves in the learning process. I'm always willing to teach new songs or skills that a student asks for.I've played guitar for about 25 years (~17 years on electric) in multiple contexts: solo, duos, rock bands, and church worship teams. I've taught guitar since 2017, in individual lessons, groups, and summer camps. I also songwrite, so I am able to bring that creative passion to the students!If you're a female student looking for a female teacher: ... View Profile

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.
