As the name suggests, if you're interested in learning guitar but you're worried that you only have a nylon-stringed, Acoustic, Electric, or any other such type that would require a teacher to properly and professionally accommodate you on the instrument in which you wish/own.     I am proficient and own each of these types and styles of guitar, and am also knowledgeable and practiced in many styles of playing each. Whether rock, blues, classical, jazz, fingerstyle, or even if you just don't know or can't decide, I'll be able to work with you to find your preference to make it not such a gigantic or Herculean task as it may see ...

Shawn McGovern Guitar Lessons

Shawn McGovern Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: I am interested in helping my students learn and have fun learning the guitar. Since the age of eleven, Shawn McGovern has devoted his life to the study of the guitar. Marveling at the powerful sonic landscapes of the electric guitar lit a fire in him. Since beginning the instrument music has been the core focus of his existence. Practicing up to 12 hours a day was a staple in Shawn's early musical diet. The discipline and focus served well, however, when Shawn started original bands at age 12, eventually playing local venues in the New England local circuit and recording a 10 song EP at age 15. One night, by chance, Sh ... View Profile

Matt Laurence

I'm a professional musician in Nashville, and there's a lot of shortcuts that I would teach beginners/intermediate players that would save a lot of time. I went to school for music (as many others did) but I still didn't get the full story. I have experience playing all contemporary styles of music like pop, rock, R&B, blues, country and gospel.  After graduating school in 2013, I've been playing professionally for 7 years. Since moving to Nashville, I've had the opportunity to study at Victor Wooten's Center for Music and Nature and had to chance to share stages with Victor Wooten, Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band, sax), Oteil Burbri ...

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.
