I specialize in classical, acoustic (steel-string), fingerstyle, and electric guitar. I also teach the ukulele. • I typically start incoming students on the classical guitar, then move them to a steel-string guitar, and then eventually on to the electric guitar. • The lessons are “face-to-face”. If needed, online is available by student request. • I teach students from 6 to 19 years old. • I also specialize and offer band sessions, for those who wish to play in groups. • I am of Ukrainian decent and therefore am able to teach both Ukrainian and Russian speaking students.  • I am centered in ...

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 ...

First of all, I love all music. Here is a list of some of the things I am proficient in and can teach you: Genres (blues, rock, country, slide, classical, metal, pop, punk), Technique (strumming, lead playing), Theory (note-reading, scales/improvisation, chord construction, timing/rhythm), Composition (putting it all together- songwriting!). And this is all only the beginning. That said, I come to each lesson with a plan, based off how the student learns and what their goals are. I am patient and let the lessons move as fast as the student is willing. I have taught literally hundreds of students over the years; 3-yr-olds to 75-yr-olds with gr ... 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.
