It's the perfect time to schedule activities for the upcoming school year. Then again, it's always the perfect time to learn how to play!A bit about me:I began by teaching myself to play before undergoing formal training, and as such the way I teach is a bit different. I've found that starting out with inspiring and nurturing the sort of creativity and expression that one learns from the process of exploring and creating music (as opposed to starting out with rote memorization and repetition) tends to foster a true passion in the learner early on. Once that fire is lit, students begin to crave knowledge and growth and it's at this point I wil ... View Profile

Curt Golden Guitar Lessons

Curt Golden Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: The primary focus of the approach I use is HOW to play, rather than WHAT to play, with an emphasis on mechanics, fretboard knowledge and ear training. My aim is for you to develop the skills to play anything you wish, and not simply the things I show you. With the guitar, the best thing we can do for ourselves is learn how to learn. Then, no teacher and no method can hold us back. Whether you are a beginner just thinking about getting some guidance, or you've been playing for some time and feel you are ready to kick it up a notch, I can help. My influences are: If they play guitar, I pay attention. Love lots of blues, ro ... View Profile

I'm passionate and thoughtful about the craft of both playing and teaching the guitar. I like to think of you as an individual when crafting a lesson plan. There are certain things that will be common to all of you, as far as what I teach. But beyond that, I want to find out what makes you tick. Not everyone has the same goals and aspirations. I want to work with your natural inclinations. I want to asses your strengths and play to those. Of course I will challenge you to step outside of your comfort zone as well. ... 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.
