Saying
About Lessons

"My son and daughter take piano lessons and thoroughly enjoy these lessons. Not only do they love the lessons, but they now take hour-long lessons at their request and asked to continue online lessons when in-person had to be suspended due to COVID-19."

– Kim T., parent | Piano, Medford, OR

"The lessons are tailored to what my daughter wants to play, which keeps it interesting and enjoyable. Remote lessons have not slowed down her progress one bit."

– Andrew W., parent | Bass, Bloomington, MN

"In about two weeks, [Guitar Center] went from, 'Sorry, lessons are temporarily closed,' to booking the next two weeks for my daughter in Zoom. From my family to the [Guitar Center] family in the Carle Place, NY location … thank you!"

– Steve L., parent | Guitar, Carle Place, NY

"We keep coming because of the talented teachers—they are real musicians who see my son as a musician. He isn't just learning an instrument, he is learning a craft."

– Eva C., parent | Guitar, Bellingham, WA

"I just wanted to sing Russ' praises and let you know I'm really enjoying my lessons with him. He also has such vibrant energy, which is really motivating for a beginner."

– Brittany K., student | Keyboard, Houston, TX

"My son has learned how to read music during his drum lessons. His instructor is patient, motivating and makes it fun. The lesson is a blend of current songs, technique training and music theory geared to grow kids into lifetime musicians."

– Jennifer T., parent | Drums, Northridge, CA

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect at my first lesson?

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.

What are the benefits of playing music?

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.

What is the difference between a 30-minute and a 60-minute 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.

How much time will my child need to practice between lessons?

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.

What is Guitar Center's curriculum?

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.

How will I be assigned an instructor?

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. Our weekly monitoring of progress and wide-ranging curriculum means you can switch to any of our qualified instructors, or another instrument, without missing a beat.
