Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

Guitar lessons teach individuals everything from the fundamentals and basic chords of guitar to advanced techniques and extremely intricate musical patterns. People of all ages can take guitar lessons in genres that include electric guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, acoustic, and jazz guitar, and the lessons can be taken both online or through a professional instructor.

Beginner guitar lessons generally consist of learning basic guitar note shapes and solo lines. Over time and with consistent practice, beginners can gradually move forward to more advanced lesson plans. In addition to private instruction, many community colleges and schools with music programs offer guitar lessons.

How do I start learning guitar?

To start learning guitar, you can sign up for lessons with a professional instructor or follow online tutorials that teach different areas of guitar, including how to play specific songs. Guitar lessons may also be available at local community colleges.

How hard is it to learn the guitar?

Guitar has always been considered one of the harder instruments to learn as it requires dexterity, hand/eye coordination, an ability to decipher abstract notes, and an understanding of guitar tabs and chords. However, many players are naturally talented, which makes learning guitar easier, so it all depends on one's specific skills and ability to absorb information.

How long does it take to learn guitar?

The length of time it takes to learn guitar varies greatly from person to person. Certain individuals can learn everything from basic chords to complete songs in just a few days or weeks, while others may take years to fully develop their skills. The average time it takes beginner to intermediate guitar players to learn one song is approximately 150 hours of practice.

Are there differences in learning to play different types of guitar?

The main difference between playing electric, bass, and acoustic guitar is that they are all separate instruments. Jazz guitar songs can be played on electric, bass, and acoustic guitars. Bass guitars and electric guitars plug into amplifiers, while acoustic guitars do not. Bass guitars and acoustic/electric guitars are different from one another based on the size of the strings and distance between each string, so learning a song on a bass guitar is slightly different than learning one on an electric or acoustic guitar.

Is it easier to learn piano or guitar?

Learning guitar may be easier for some people than learning piano, and learning piano may be easier for some people than learning guitar. It all depends on the individual's natural talent and ability to take direction and absorb information. Both instruments can take several years to master.

What\'s the fastest way to learn to play the guitar?

Mastering guitar can take several years; however, learning stepping stone chords and strumming through a professional instructor or via online tutorials can help speed up the process. Stepping stone chords consist of different sets of three common chords that, once mastered, allow students to improve their techniques and move forward with learning full songs.

How much are guitar lessons?

Group and class guitar lessons are generally charged on a monthly basis at an average of $40 to $80 per month. The price can vary depending on the specific lesson plans, type of instruction, and the instructor's preferred prices. Additionally, many community colleges offer music courses where costs may be lower or based on quarterly fees.

How much do private guitar lessons cost?

While specific prices can vary, the average cost of private guitar lessons starts at around $15 to $25 for a 30-minute lesson, and $20 to $45 for an hour-long lesson. For advanced guitar students, rates can be as high as $50 to $75 per hour depending on the specifics of each lesson.

What age should someone start taking guitar lessons?

It's recommended for children to start taking guitar lessons around 7 to 8 years old as long as they are at the age where they can retain information. However, starting guitar lessons at a young age is not a requirement, and people can begin their musical educations well into adulthood.

Is it too late to learn to play guitar?

It's never too late to learn to play the guitar. In fact, studies have shown that learning an instrument can actually increase the grey matter in one's brain, which can help improve memory, reaction time, and overall alertness in individuals of all ages.

Can you learn to play guitar by yourself?

There are several ways a player can learn to play the guitar by themselves that include online tutorials, books, and consistent practice. Certain individuals have the ability to 'play by ear', which is basically playing music without the need for instruction or sheet music. These people can often learn to play guitar by simply listening to a song and finding the appropriate strings and chords on the instrument based off of memory.

Should I take guitar lessons?

If playing the guitar is something that you wish to excel at or explore, then taking guitar lessons is a good idea. Learning how to play an instrument is a great way to express and expand your creativity, and both playing music and listening to music are good solutions for reducing stress.

Are guitar lessons worth it?

Guitar lessons are worth it to anyone who wishes to learn the instrument either for a hobby or to work in the music industry. Professional guitar teachers have extensive experience and knowledge in music theory, chording, and techniques that players may not be aware of whether they're a natural talent or a beginner.

Are online guitar lessons effective?

Online guitar lessons can be just as effective as in-person lessons, especially when the student is working interactively with the teacher on a video chat application. Online tutorials that offer demonstrations of chording and teach players how to play specific songs in a step-by-step fashion are also effective.

What should you not do while playing guitar?

A few tips on what not to do when playing guitar include using poor posture and holding the guitar when the wrists are not at a straight angle. Avoid bracing or touching the top of the guitar with the right hand pinky, and try not to hook the strings with the fingers then pulling up as this can strain the strings.

Does playing guitar make you more attractive?

Playing the guitar well can help build one's confidence, which in turn may make someone more attractive to others. Some surveys have shown that men and women find people who play the guitar approximately 90% more attractive. However, whether someone finds another attractive is a personal feeling, so there's no scientific proof that playing a guitar boosts one's attractiveness.

Is playing too much guitar bad for you?

Playing too much guitar is only considered bad for someone if they injure themselves. For example, overplaying the guitar when you first begin can lead to sore, blistered fingers; however, blisters and calluses are common among guitar players. Holding a heavy guitar for extended periods may also lead to aching shoulders and back pain.

How do I start giving guitar lessons?

To start giving guitar lessons, you must first possess the skills and knowledge needed to provide instruction. Once your teaching skills are developed, you can advertise your services through online want ads or by building your own website that highlights your teaching techniques, experience, and pricing.
