Patience is the number one quality my students appreciate about my teaching.  No matter what level or ability, each student has unique goals, challenges and skills, and for the first time beginner, my enjoyment of teaching and patience inspires my students to feel ok about learning good habits and techniques that help them avoid the pitfalls and "mistakes" (learning opportunities) that are necessary to grow as a musician.  My teaching exemplifies commitment to my music practice by fostering courage,  determination and persistence. Each student has specific goals, and my job is to help them achieve those goals.   "I've miss ... View Profile

Our classes are designed with community and friendships in mind as a goal. You can take lessons anywhere. Although you can’t find conservatory trained or qualified educators just anywhere. But while private lessons are an excellent way to grow as a musician, apart from learning in a group, like the group class, ensemble, and lab formats that we offer—you could be missing out big!

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.
