Mark C. says, "Marshalls an awesome teacher for multiple reasons. First, he's extremely talented and can play practically anything by ear. So when I tell him a song I want to learn, if he doesn't already know it, he can give it a quick listen and start breaking it down for me really quickly. This has been awesome for me because I used to waste a lot of time looking up different versions of tabs or watching a bunch of videos. Second, he is really good at breaking down new songs in a way that helps me learn them efficiently. I'm learning songs now that I would have given up on in 5 minutes if I tried to tackle them myself, but having Marhsall break them down into manageable parts has made it much easier and I can learn way quicker. Also, Marshall includes small lessons on relevant music theory while learning a song, which is very interesting when you can see how what he explains relates directly to what you're playing. Lastly, Marshall is just a very patient, kind, and fun person which makes our lessons even that much more enjoyable. I would very highly recommend Marshall if you have any interest in taking lessons.

Your classical guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do classical guitar lessons cost near me?

Most classical guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session for durations of 30 to 60 minutes. One-on-one lessons typically cost between $45 and $70 per hour, whereas group sessions are a more affordable option at $25 to $35 per class.

For those who prefer a digital classroom, online lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour. Monthly ongoing instruction costs $170 to $315 with a prepaid discount.

Why should I take classical guitar lessons?

You should take classical guitar lessons if you have an acoustic guitar and want to learn how to play classical concertos or Spanish-style music with fingerpicking.

Classical guitar lessons teach you how to:

  • Use nylon-string guitars and strum with the fingers instead of a pick
  • Develop your fingers to focus on complex fingerpicking techniques
  • Understand classical music theory and sight-reading

At what age should I start classical guitar lessons?

Children generally begin their classical guitar journey between the ages of 6 to 10, or as soon as they can hold the instrument well with enough hand strength to press the strings. Adults of all ages can master the instrument with the correct guidance and consistent practice.

How many classical guitar lessons do I need?

The number of weekly classical guitar lessons you need will depend on your personal goals and dedication to practice. A beginner might grasp a simple song within 2 to 6 months, but acquiring proficiency like a professional requires 4 to 10 years on average.

How do I find the best classical guitar lessons near me?

You can find proficient classical guitar tutors nearby by looking at the listings here on the Lessons platform. Sometimes teachers ara available through local music stores too.

Before hiring your tutor, always:

  • Obtain quotes from a minimum of 3 teachers and clarify what they teach.
  • Review feedback about them on Google and the Lessons site.
  • Request a reference list of their past students.
  • Ask fellow parents about their children's experiences with the tutor.
  • Secure a written agreement and schedule prior to the first session.
  • Make small initial payments to gauge the tutor's compatibility before committing to a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a classical guitar teacher?

Ask these pertinent questions to help you pick a classical guitar teacher:

  • Did you study music formally, and what qualifications do you have?
  • How many years have you been teaching classical guitar?
  • Could I have a trial lesson to see if your teaching method works for me?
  • What is the typical age range of your students?
  • Which model of acoustic guitar should I purchase?
  • Will you assign homework, and how much practice is required?
  • What type of strings are best for beginners?
  • Which books should I buy for learning classical guitar?
  • Can you accommodate different learning styles?
  • What essentials should I bring to class, and how long is each session?
  • Can I have a written copy of our class schedule?
  • What is your policy for missed classes?
  • Am I allowed to suggest songs that I would like to learn?

As a 100% self taught guitar player, I had plateaued for a long time and needed someone to get me back on track. Working with Cole has been exactly what I’ve been looking for to get unstuck!

Marshall is an an excellent guitar teacher. He plays everything by ear which is impressive. He has extensive knowledge of music theory, which is challenging for me but I'm working on it and he is really patient with my slow learning process.

Mark has been amazing teaching my son. He was very patient with him when he was much younger and has evolved his teaching style along with my son's progress. He has always focused lessons around the music in which my son is most interested and introduced him to other music along the way. Over the years Mark has taught him rock, jazz, and classical techniques and music from many eras. I really can't imagine a better teacher for my son. Thank you, Mark. You are awesome.

VERY HELPFULL AND UNDERSTANDING of a teacher BREAKS DOWN THE LESSON. Learned a lot in one day that I would in a semester in college.
