Frequently Asked Questions

What else do I need for my guitar lesson?

Aside from your guitar and accessories, you'll also need a pencil and paper, a music stand, curriculum/books and any music or guitar tabs you're learning or want to learn (digital or physical). A metronome to keep time is also necessary—we sell a variety on our website and in our stores. There are free apps as well.

Does my guitar need to be in tune?

Your guitar needs to be properly tuned so everything sounds as good as you're playing. If you aren't sure how to tune your guitar, your certified guitar instructor can teach you on your first day of guitar lessons. A variety of tuners easily clip onto your guitar and are available on our website and in our stores. There are free apps, too.

What can I expect at my first guitar lesson?

Each guitar instructor customizes your in-store or online guitar lessons to ensure you're learning what you like and having fun. Your guitar instructor will start you slowly, introducing new concepts each week. If you choose to learn guitar online, you'll get live, one-on-one instruction from our expert instructors. You can also take guitar lessons near you at one of our select locations, where you'll learn in our comfortable, private rehearsal studios. You'll also get tips, tricks and techniques to keep progressing in between sessions.

What is the difference between a 30-minute and a 60-minute guitar lesson?

Our 30-minute in-store or online guitar lessons allow you to build your skills over time, while our 60-minute lessons give you the opportunity to progress more quickly. From learning guitar chords, notes and scales to your favorite songs, our expert instructors will make sure you learn how to play guitar at a pace that's comfortable for you.

How do you select your guitar instructors?

We've carefully selected the most qualified and well-respected guitar instructors who are friendly, patient and experienced. We'll match you with an instructor who's a great fit for your skill level and personal goals. All instructors are also required to pass detailed training and a background check.

What other stringed instruments do you teach?

Our expert instructors can help you find your rhythm on almost any stringed instrument. You might play a 12-string guitar, or want to take lessons for 7- and 8-string guitars. From ukulele to the banjo or mandolin, and from basic strumming to nailing riffs and solos, we can build a custom program for you.
