Are electric guitar lessons worth it?

Electric guitar lessons are worth it if you want to learn more at a faster pace, develop a better technique, and get customized instructions to improve your style. Only an experienced electric guitar player can understand how to help you improve, so don't settle for a general guitar instructor.

What age is good to start electric guitar lessons?

A good age for kids to start electric guitar lessons is from 6 to 10 years old. Another indication they're ready to learn is whenever they're physically able to hold the guitar and have the hand strength to press the strings.

Adults of all ages can also start electric guitar lessons at any time. With the right guidance and consistent practice, anyone can master the electric guitar.

How many lessons does it take to learn electric guitar?

The number of lessons it takes you to learn electric guitar depends on your goals and how much time you dedicate to practicing those epic solos. Playing a simple tune might take 2 to 6 months of weekly classes.

If you're aiming to rock out like a pro, expect a time investment of 4 to 10 years.

Are acoustic and electric guitar lessons the same?

Acoustic and electric guitar lessons aren't the same because these are two entirely different instruments with unique equipment features.

Learning to play electric guitar requires:

  • Knowing how to use an amplifier and pedals that create sound effects
  • Understanding how to adjust the speaker connection
  • Knowledge of genres like rock, metal, blues, and jazz
  • Special techniques like power chords, palm muting, and string bending

Learning to play an acoustic guitar means you focus on classical, folk, country, pop, or blues music. A pick is optional in acoustic lessons, and you don't need amplifiers or cables. Acoustic teachers also place more emphasis on fingerpicking patterns.

  • Check out their reviews on Google and Lessons.
  • Request for a references list of past students to verify their track record.

Reviews for West Allis electric guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the West Allis area.
Jodi C.
I had my first Christmas solo this year. I hired Annie for a limited amount of lessons. Annie quickly understood how I best learned and was able to use tools, like visualizing a ball bouncing to different heights to match the notes. Her genuine interest in my success along with her positive attitude and professionalism gave me the knowledge and confidence to perform my Christmas solo. Annie is Amazing!! …………… Jodi

Mr. Terrien teaches while playing along with his student in harmony or melody, not just echoing the student's part, which provides the student with the very real pleasure of 'jamming' as a real musician through the majority of the sessions. He interweaves high level music theory into lessons where the knowledge logically supports technique growth, making it feel less like a homework task and more like unlocking understanding. In the year my son has played and performed with Mr. Terrien, his interest in playing has deepened from, "this is kind of interesting" to "this is part of who I am and what I do", and that growth of passion is what parents hope for their child as they pursue a new skill.

I contacted Aaron because of the description of topics of instruction he listed in his ad for lessons. They were exactly what I've been looking for. The main item I've been looking for is music theory. I don't want to just learn how to play a piece of music. I want to know how the song was created and why the chords progress the way they do. And Aaron is guiding me on my path step by step. So far he as the patience of a saint dealing with this late to the party student. And I plan to test his patience by continuing to ask my main questions for everything.......Who, What, When, Where & Why?
