I stand out from the competition in one way in that I'm able to answer any questions my student has throughout the week/s betweeen lessons by being only a phone call, text or email away so that they are not stuck on a particular issue preventing them from progressing between lessons. I bring value from my various musical experiences ranging  from being a classically-trained concert pianist, songwriter, and guitarist in a performing band. I'm able to teach my students the basics of their instrument extending to intermediate and more advanced concepts ... View Profile

Evan Ward Acoustic Guitar Lessons

I’ve been playing guitar for over 10 years. I was in percussion from 6th grade through the end of high school, and joined the Wilson Memorial High School Drumline as a Freshman. I offer professional lessons to any age, and I come to you! I attend in local open mics in Charlottesville and Waynesboro, and am familiar with the music scene. I learned to play acoustic guitar by myself, so my services will be very different compared to what other traditional lessons are like. I’ll be focusing on mainly core fundamentals, such as chord playing and picking. My goal is that I want to prove that traditional lessons are not the only met ... View Profile

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.
