5.0 2 Reviews
A local of the area, Peter Joshua Gil now resides in Downtown Lynchburg and has his studio in a renovated historic home on Court Street. It was around the age of 12 that Peter first picked up a guitar. Theirs was a casual acquaintance at first, Peter and his guitar, with no serious intentions, but the more time they spent together the more this fact became evident to everyone around: these two were made for each other. Having been inseparable from his guitar throughout high school – he was at times restricted in how much we was allowed to practice by his parents – Peter decided to study the instrument in college and received ...

Jonathan Freed Music (Rainbow Forest Baptist Church)

Jonathan Freed Music (Rainbow Forest Baptist Church)

My name is Jonathan Freed and I am a music and worship pastor at Rainbow Forest Baptist Church. My passion is in learning more about and preforming on the guitar, acoustic and electric, but I also love learning and teaching many other instruments. I love to play progressive style acoustic guitar and I mainly zero in on jazz and rock with my electric. I have taught lessons (drum, cello, guitar) at my church for quite some time now and am looking to branch out and hopefully create my own music studio where students can come and experience an artistic growth in anything musically they want to learn about.  ...

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.
