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.

Featured Instructor

While learning to play guitar requires an intensity of purpose about your desire, it also requires a zen-like approach that allows the aspiring guitarist to be in it for the long haul and to absorb as much as possible in any given period of time.

Waco Guitar Teacher Julia Tucker Combines Relaxation And Purpose In Her Guitar Lessons

That’s why the team at Lessons.com.com is intrigued by the guitar teaching approach of Julia Tucker, giving guitar lessons in her studio or students’ homes in Waco, China Spring, Hewitt/Woodway, Bellmead, and Valley Mills, Texas. Describing her approach in her profile, Julia says: “I practice teaching in a very relaxed environment. Whether the lessons are at your house or mine there should not be a lot of distractions. I have taught people from 7 to 45 years of age.”

However, Julia also states further: “My ideal guitar student is someone who can commit to learning. I require my students to practice a minimum of 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week. If a student cannot spare that time then they do not really have time to learn how to play.”

With beginner guitar lessons through intermediate and advanced guitar lessons, Julia teaches her students acoustic and electric guitar covering a full range of styles and techniques from rock and blues to country and gospel and from fingerpicking to open tuning and rhythm.

Learning guitar, while being a relaxing and meditative experience, also demands a set of goals and aspirations to propel us forward, and it seems that Julia Tucker embraces just such a philosophy and artistic stance. So, if you’re like-minded about your guitar playing journey and looking for a guitar teacher in Waco, we hope you’ll look up her profile and contact her soon.
