Frequently Asked Questions

The Guitar Center Lessons Experience

Our expert instructors can help you find your rhythm on almost any stringed instrument, including electric guitar, acoustic guitar and bass. 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.

Our flexible guitar lessons curriculum allows students of all skill levels to experience growth. We help create a foundational understanding of music theory through the style of music you want to play. Our guitar instructors will work to understand your goals and passions, and make sure you are on the path to learning what you want at your own speed. From playing beginner guitar songs to learning guitar scales, notes and chords, our instructors will cover it all.

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.

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.

This varies by age and the type of goals the student has set out to achieve. However, most new students usually spend 15–30 min. practicing guitar daily, while advanced players can practice for an hour or more each day in between guitar lessons.

Parents and guardians: If you are signing your child up for online lessons, please read this first. Guitar Center takes the safety of students and instructors very seriously, which is why our online lessons are recorded.

The recordings, which may capture the voice and image of your child, are stored using Zoom's Cloud recording service and are only accessible to authorized Guitar Center employees. Neither students nor instructors have access to the recordings.

Recordings are temporarily stored by Zoom to ensure the safety of both students and instructors and are not used or shared for any other purpose.

To proceed, we will need your consent to record your child's lessons through Zoom. By completing the payment, you consent to this recording.
