I create a personal one on one lesson that is created with the student in mind. Understanding the student's goal will help me take them to the place they want to go. Its a joy that I can be a part of someones musical development. When I started playing at the age of 11, I only wanted to understand more and more of what is possible. I can only hope that I can unlock a new understanding of what is truly possible in music.

Your Guitar Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do guitar lessons cost near me?

Guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 per lesson, depending on if they last 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. If it's a one-on-one lesson, it'll cost around $45 to $70 hourly. Learning guitar in a group is cheaper at $25 to $35 per session.

If you're taking lessons every month, it adds up to $170 to $315 with the typical prepaid discount.

Are guitar lessons worth it?

Guitar lessons are worth it since only a professional teacher giving you live feedback can guide you to learn faster. A good instructor helps you understand your mistakes and prevents you from developing bad habits.

Learning guitar by yourself takes a lot longer and won't prepare you as well to play in public.

At what age should I start guitar lessons?

Children can start guitar lessons from the ages of 6 to 10, or when they can comfortably hold the guitar and press the strings. Adults can start guitar lessons at any age, provided they practice regularly and patiently.

How many guitar lessons do I need?

The number of guitar lessons you need varies according to your goal and your practice routine. For many people, it typically takes about 2 to 6 months to play a simple tune. Mastering the guitar like a professional can take anywhere from 4 to 10 years.

What do you learn in guitar lessons?

In most guitar lessons, you can expect to learn:

  • How to correctly position your fingers to play chords
  • How to tune your guitar
  • How to play various scales
  • New techniques for plucking and strumming
  • How to read sheet music.

Are online guitar lessons good?

Online guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour and are good for getting personal instruction from skilled teachers worldwide. Take advantage of flexible scheduling and immediate feedback while learning new guitar-playing styles. Plus, you can easily record lessons to review their advice later.

How do I find the best guitar lessons near me?

In order to find the best guitar lessons for you, look through nearby teachers listed here on the Lessons website. You can also ask for teachers at local music stores or community colleges.

Before you hire a guitar teacher, make sure to:

  • Check out prices from at least 3 different teachers.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask for a list of their current or previous students that you can talk to.
  • Talk to other parents about the teacher's reputation with their children.
  • Make sure you get a written agreement and schedule before your first lesson.
  • Avoid making a big payment upfront for a month of lessons until you're comfortable with the teacher.

What questions do I ask when choosing a guitar teacher?

To find the right guitar teacher, you can ask them these questions:

  • What kind of music degree do you have?
  • How many years of experience do you have in teaching guitar?
  • Can I have a free trial lesson to see if your teaching style helps me?
  • What is the average age of your students?
  • Will you assign me finger exercises as homework?
  • How often should I practice between lessons?
  • What textbooks do I need, and where can I buy used ones?
  • How many guitar-playing styles are you an expert in?
  • Can you modify your teaching style to suit my learning abilities?
  • What should I bring to our lessons, and how long is each one?
  • Can I get a copy of our schedule, agreement, and payment terms?
  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a class due to an emergency?
  • Can I choose some of my favorite songs to learn on the guitar?

Ms. Bruckner is very kind and patient with my kids. We have seen a tremendous improvement in their piano skills in such a short period of time, and couldn’t be happier. Ms. Bruckner truly cares about her students, and that makes a big difference.

Austin has been an incredible teacher so far. He’s punctual, results-driven and is able to adapt his lessons to my learning style. Billing and logistics have also been very satisfactory.

The best experience! My daughter is taking vocal lessons with Mr. Achille. I was so shocked at how quick she became so confident in her vocals and knowledge on what to do. We will continue taking her to the best music school! Thank you guys for being great!

Skiles is a good teacher. His lessons are easy to pick up on and he’s real flexible with scheduling. Only gripe is that sometimes lessons would occasionally get interrupted with a phone call, but overall I very much recommend this place for learning guitar for the first time.

Samira will meet you right where you are! She structured the lessons based on exactly what I needed and where I was getting stuck. She came to lessons from a very grounded somatics place, noticing where I was getting stuck in my head, where I needed to ground in my body, and where I simply needed more practice.
