I've been teaching online and private lessons for over 30 years; students of all levels & styles (including rock, pop, alternative, jazz, blues, classical, hot country licks, new metal, progressive metal, as well as songwriting and theory).  I am successful teaching both adults and children.  I have toured the world with an international metal band (Manowar).  I'm a super-shred guitar virtuoso so I can help you if you want to learn how to SHRED, which a small percentage of teachers are able to teach.  I am also very good with beginners!  Through my extensive teaching experience, I have developed a teaching style w ...

I take an approach that works very well. Not only teaching you how to play guitar, but by getting you inspired to actually practice guitar. Find what motivates you. Starting off learning songs you like. I have children of my own and I would have to say I am great with kids! A big part of teaching anyone really, is patience..... I am very patient.

One of the most important things that I keep in mind during every lesson is the ultimate goals of the student in front of me at that moment.  At the same time, there are fundamentals and sequences of learning that every student must be taught in order to become the best they can be.  There is a very fine balance of these two that must be met at every lesson, and I feel that my sensitivity of this balance is something that makes me stand out as a teacher.  My experience playing and singing professionally "out in the real world" as a paid performer for 25+ years is also an asset that many teachers cannot compete with.  I tak ...

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.
