Guitar Center Lessons students can view or modify an upcoming lesson with our exclusive online Lessons scheduler or by calling your Lessons location. The Lessons Scheduler is available in the My Account section.
We offer private one-on-one and group instruction for guitar, bass, drums, piano, vocals. At select locations, we also offer lessons in DJing, songwriting and music production classes for learning popular DAWs (digital audio workstations).
Each instructor customizes lessons to ensure that you are learning what you like and having fun. Your instructor will start you slowly, introducing new concepts each week, plus give you exercises or easy songs to play to keep you learning at home.
We have a wide range of instructors teaching in safe, modern learning facilities located conveniently within our Guitar Center retail locations. There are cameras in each lesson room so you can monitor your child’s progress from the waiting room or lobby.
Learning an instrument is an enriching and rewarding experience that creates lifelong benefits, including increased self-esteem and the boosting of memory. Additionally, benefits for school-age individuals can include improved coordination, the expanding of social skills, and higher scores in math, reading and language.
An adult parent or guardian must accompany any student under 12 years of age upon arrival and departure from every lesson.

30-minute lessons allow young or beginner students to learn the basics of the instrument and start playing songs. 60-minute lessons are ideal for more advanced students looking to progress faster and focus on the finer points of technique.
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 daily, while advanced students can practice for an hour or more each day in-between lessons.
Our Lessons staff will work with you to determine your current skill level, stylistic interest and ambitions. We'll then help you choose an instructor who best suits your style and goals. If at any point, you'd like to change instructors, let us know.
