Private or Group Guitar Lessons

 

Guitar Lessons are offered to students starting at age 5. Certain concerns must be addressed for younger students. Playing guitar requires a fair amount of pressure on the fingertips when pressing the strings. Young students should start with an acoustic "classical" style guitar that has nylon strings. This kind of guitar is easier for young students to press the strings without causing the pain that metal strings may cause. A standard style acoustic guitar or electric with wire strings is acceptable for students age 10 and up. A 30-minute weekly lesson is perfect for students age 5 to 10. For older students a 1 hour weekly lesson may be more appropriate. Just remember that available practice time between lessons is an important factor to consider when deciding how long a student’s weekly lesson should be. Students who take a 1 hour lesson will be given more material to prepare for the next lesson and will require more practice time than the student taking a 30 minute weekly lesson.
