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. I have been playing guitar for 25 years. I have been in bands that have played out and toured all over. The bands I have been in have opened for Evenesence, Filter, Stabbing westward, smashing pumpkins, Slayer, Pantera I was also pretty good friends with the Guffs. My best friend since childhood is i ... View Profile

My teaching approach: I've been playing guitar and writing songs for about 25 years. Played with several bands in high school, did 2 acoustic CDs and performed throughout college. For the past 3 years I have been focusing on my band, Heavens Have Strayed, singing, playing guitar, and writing most of the material. My influences derive from rock & metal to mellow, acoustic work. I teach all across the genre spectrum. My guitar lessons typically take place in the student's home.  Guitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: I reside in Greenfield & teach students from Milwaukee down to Pleasant Praire.

The method I use to teach is called "8 Cycle Guitar." It is a method I designed from my experience in teaching over 120 students over the past 7 years. I do this daily for a living, full-time.  I specialize in teaching beginners with little to no prior experience on the guitar. I am very passionate about teaching music to others. I continually study and learn to enhance lessons for my students.  I teach intermediate players to get them to their next level of skill on guitar.  I teach from my home studio in Zion, IL and I also teach online through Zoom, Google Hangouts (Skype is available too). Online service uses free platforms ... View Profile

Guitar Instruction By Nancy

Guitar Instruction By Nancy

My goal is to share my love for music - I focus on the music the student already loves and also expose them to some new styles they might enjoy (Particularly the kids). I'm an engineer who retired young to teach and play music. I've been teaching since 2001, starting at a local music store in Kenosha, WI. Been playing since 1971, been in several bands in Massachusetts and Wisconsin, playing various instruments, performing original music and singing. Have sung in several choirs. Currently in County Crossings, an Irish & old-time band, in which I play guitar, Banjo and Mandolin & the singer. ... View Profile

Matthew Fadziejewski Guitar And Bass Lessons

Matthew Fadziejewski Guitar And Bass Lessons

I will not just teach people how to play guitar or bass. I will also deeply implement music theory into my teachings. I want my students to learn to make music with their instrument, not just play it. I teach classical music theory techniques used by Bach and Mozart and show them how it applies to contemporary music, including blues, rock, alternative, punk, and some metal. I am in 2 bands, one being a punk band and the other Indie/Alternative. I currently go to the College of Lake County for a music degree, and have been taking music theory courses for 4 years. I have been playing guitar for 8 years, and started taking lessons at the Old Tow ... 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.
