Frequently Asked Questions

The Guitar Center Lessons Experience

We offer live, one-on-one lessons on guitar (electric and acoustic), bass, drums, piano and DJ. At select locations, we offer lessons for orchestral stringed instruments and brass & woodwind instruments. We also offer singing lessons.

Each instructor customizes lessons to ensure 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.

Our flexible 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 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.

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.

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.

Yes. We record all of our lessons for the safety of our students and instructors, and to monitor for quality control.

What do you do with our recorded lessons?

We only use the recordings for safety and quality monitoring purposes. Recordings will not be used for marketing purposes or any other use. We do not provide those recordings to anyone—students, instructors or the public. Only approved Guitar Center employee administrators have access to the recordings.

How do you secure the recordings?

The recordings are encrypted and stored in a secured location that is only accessible by approved Guitar Center employee administrators.
