Kristen says, "Lulu helped me find ways to approach reading material that was new to me and that was very hard to understand. I appreciated the ways she made things easier by first looking at the over all message of the writing before worrying about writing the essay. She made learning new words fun and I got pretty excited to learn in a subject I don’t really enjoy normally. I was able to maintain my A average too which I was really worried about. " Read more

As a current high school student with 2 years of tutoring experience, all K-10 material is still very relevant and fresh in my mind. I have worked with a variety of ages, from kindergarten all the way to high school. I get to know each student individually as well as get to know their personal goals. I will provide quick, concise responses for those in a hurry, and slow, methodic teaching for those looking to understand the material on a deeper level. I welcome parent feedback and will alter my methods based on parental goals as well.

I am looking to tutor because I have always had a passion for learning. I am able to help others understand concepts and ideas by explaining said concept or idea in a specific way that caters to the individuals learning style. I believe everybody learns differently and I would be happy to help individuals learn how they process learned information and how to strategically continue their educational journey. I am currently working as an investor in the stock market as well as attending classes at Los Angeles City College.

Your guitar questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.

How much do guitar teachers cost near me?

Most guitar lessons cost $35 to $70 for sessions of 30 minutes minimum to 60 minutes maximum. Private lessons cost $45 to $70 per hour. Learning in a group is cheaper at only $25 to $35 each time.

Continuing these lessons every month costs $170 to $315 with the average prepaid discount.

Are guitar lessons worth it?

Guitar lessons are worth it to help you get better much faster and prepare to play in public. A teacher can show you the right way to play and stop you from learning bad habits before they become hard to break.

If you try learning guitar all by yourself, it's very difficult and takes longer.

At what age should I start guitar lessons?

Kids can start guitar lessons when they are between 6 to 10 years old. This age is typically when they can hold the guitar well and press on the strings hard enough. Adults can start guitar lessons anytime and will make progress as long as they practice regularly.

How many guitar lessons do I need?

You'll need enough guitar lessons to understand what it takes for you to reach your goals, which varies greatly from one person to the next. Learning to play a simple song might take 2 to 6 months. Playing guitar like a pro often takes 4 to 10 years.

The amount of lessons needed all depends on what you want to do, your prior music experience, and how much you practice.

What do you learn in guitar lessons?

In most guitar lessons, you will learn the right way to put your fingers, how to tune your guitar, how to play different notes, and how to pluck and strum the strings. You'll also learn how to read music notes and follow chord changes in sheet music.

Are online guitar lessons good?

Online guitar lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour and are a good way to get instruction from more teachers, even those living far away. You can also choose more times that work best for you. Plus, you can record your lessons to remember everything they tell you to do.

How do I find the best guitar tutor near me?

You can find the best guitar tutor for you by browsing through nearby teachers listed right here on the Tutors website. Sometimes guitar lessons are also available at your local music stores.

Before you pick a guitar teacher, remember to:

  • Look at prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons include.
  • Read what others have said about them on Google and here on Tutors.
  • Ask for a list of other students they've taught to check their references.
  • Ask other parents what their kids think about the teacher.
  • Get a written schedule and contract before the first lesson.
  • Pay a little bit at a time to see if the teacher suits you before booking a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a guitar teacher?

To find the best teacher for you, ask these questions:

  • Did you study music in school, and which degrees did you get?
  • How long have you been teaching guitar?
  • Can I try a lesson for free to see if your teaching style will help me?
  • How old are most of your students?
  • What kind of guitar should I buy?
  • Will you give me homework, and how much should I practice?
  • What books should I buy to learn guitar?
  • Which kind of guitar music do you teach best?
  • Can you change the way you teach if I don't understand something?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long does it last?
  • Can I get a copy of our schedule?
  • What if I can't come to a class because something came up?
  • Can I pick some of my favorite songs to learn?
