With my students, I begin by establishing an understanding of music and the guitar in a broader sense, without focusing on a particular genre. The guitar is an incredibly versatile instrument that is present in countless styles of music all over the world, and this broad understanding better prepares students to approach any genre that appeals to them. Lessons focus on development of proper technique, music theory, and music reading. Lessons are geared toward the student's personal goals as a musician. Teaching experience I have taught many private students in the past five years, teaching primarily classical guitar. I have also taught beginn...

Your acoustic guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do acoustic guitar lessons cost near me?

Most acoustic guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per session for 30 to 60 minutes. Private class prices are $45 to $70 per hour and give students the most attention. Group guitar lessons cost $25 to $35 per session for a collaborative learning environment with less personal attention.

Subscriptions for ongoing lessons are available from $170 to $315 per month.

Are acoustic guitar lessons worth it?

Acoustic guitar lessons are worth it because the structured teaching style motivates students and enhances faster progress. A private instructor also helps to prevent the development of poor techniques common in self-taught musicians.

What age is good to start acoustic guitar lessons?

You can start acoustic guitar lessons for children from ages 6 to 10 years old while adults can start lessons at any age. The journey of mastering the guitar is dependent on your dedication to practice and your teacher's qualifications.

How many acoustic guitar lessons do I need?

The amount of acoustic guitar lessons you need will depend on what you want to accomplish and how frequently you practice. Learning a simple song takes 2 to 6 months on average. However, mastering the guitar like a professional musician takes 4 to 10 years.

Is there a difference between electric and acoustic guitar lessons?

There are many differences between electric and acoustic guitar lessons because these instruments have unique features.

An electric guitar requires you to learn:

  • How to use an amplifier
  • How to work with effects and foot pedals
  • What makes a wide range of sounds for rock, metal, blues, or jazz
  • Techniques like power chords, palm muting, and note bending

However, learning to play an acoustic guitar is simpler because it doesn't connect to amplifiers or cables. Acoustic guitar playing uses different finger techniques to make a resonant sound suitable for folk, country, pop, and blues music.

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

To find the most suitable acoustic guitar lessons, you can peruse the list of nearby teachers here on the Lessons website. Also, don't overlook the potential of local music stores for guitar lessons.

Before settling on a guitar teacher, it's crucial to:

  • Review the prices from at least 3 different teachers.
  • Examine reviews about them on Google and Lessons.
  • Ask for references from other students they've taught.
  • Consult with other parents to gauge their children's experience with the teacher.
  • Get a written schedule and contract prior to the first lesson.
  • Evaluate the teacher's compatibility before signing up for a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing an acoustic guitar teacher?

To choose the best acoustic guitar teacher, it helps to pose these questions:

  • What music-related degrees do you have?
  • Is there an option for a complimentary first session to see if we're a good fit?
  • What is the extent of your experience in teaching guitar?
  • Which type of acoustic guitar would be most appropriate for me to practice on?
  • What's the average age range of your student base?
  • Will you assign finger drills for me to practice outside of lessons?
  • How much independent practice do you recommend between classes?
  • Which specific textbooks should I get?
  • How many styles of guitar music can you teach?
  • Could you adjust your instructional methods if I'm having difficulties?
  • What should I bring to our classes?
  • How long is each session?
  • Could I get a copy of our class timetable, agreement, and terms of payment?
  • What is your protocol to cancel a class due to an unforeseen circumstance?
  • Is there flexibility to add some of my favorite songs into the curriculum?

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!

Both my sons take drum lessons from Lael. He was recommended to us by a local music teacher. They absolutely love it. They have learned so much and look forward to their lesson each week. Lael makes it fun and engaging. I can’t say enough good things about what he gives to the experience of learning. I would highly recommend him.

It is always a relief to find the things I want to do within a reasonable distance from my home, and one of the several locations for lessons with Mr Weinberg is only 15 minutes away. He is a wonderful musician and is very intuitive on which aspects I need more clear instruction on, and which come more easily for me. This may sound like an obvious part of teaching, but it is not a given with all music instructors. Having that extra attention has gotten me off to a very solid start with no time wasted during the lessons. I'm thankful to have found Mr Weinberg, he is a gem in the music world. Give him a try, I promise you will be pleased with the lessons, and with the outcome.

Joel is an amazing guitar instructor. After the first lesson, he will determine your skill level. Once he learns your music goals, he will craft an instructional program to meet those goals which is challenging enough to keep you interested, but within your skill set to not discourage. Joel is by far the best instructor I have ever had.

I appreciate Tony's skill level, patience and learning style. Tony pours into you with all of his knowledge and isn't just there for the paycheck. He's there to help you become a guitarist. I recommend Tony often due to these reasons.
