I have been teaching guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, mandolin and vocal lessons in Rapid City for over 25 years. I enjoy seeing "the light come on" when they discover a new technique. Music is my life. I was inducted into the S.D. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019 as a member of the Aaron Baron Band.

Guitar Lessons In Your Home

My name is Anthony and I'm offering beginning private guitar lessons for all ages. I'm 45 years old and I have been teaching guitar for about 10 years. I have been working with children for 4 years through 4-H. My lessons include an introduction to music theory, sight reading, and ear training. In addition to lessons, I offer a mentorship to kids and young adults. I encourage them to go to college and make decisions like responsible members of society. My standard rate is $60 an hour (once a week) to be paid in advance at the beginning of the month. Please contact me if you are interested or have any questions. References available on request ...

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.
