Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

🎸 How can I find guitar lessons near me?

Filter by your city or you can take online guitar lessons. We recommend contacting the tutors to ask about their teaching methods and availability. You should also check the opinions of other students. Many guitar tutors have the genre of music they usually play on their profile and you can even ask them for a portfolio.

💵 What is the price of a guitar lesson?

The price of a guitar lesson varies depending on the type of lesson, the experience of the tutor and, of course, their qualifications. At FindTutors you will see that guitar lessons cost around £24 an hour.

🏠 Can I learn to play the guitar at home?

It's never too late to learn something new, and learning to play the guitar is no exception. As mentioned above, there is now the great advantage that you can opt for private lessons or online guitar lessons, allowing you to learn any new skill without having to leave the comfort of your own home.

🤷🏻 What types of guitar can I learn to play?

Currently you can learn to play 3 types of guitar in private lessons: acoustic, electro-acoustic and electric.

  • Acoustic: This type of guitar is characterised by having a soundboard.
  • Electroacoustic: It is a combination of acoustic and electric guitars, characterised by having the same body as an acoustic guitar, but with the additional feature of having pickups, a microphone or transducers.
  • Electric: With an electric guitar, it is possible to create variations in timbre, extending the notes further.

Guitar lessons and their benefits

Electric guitar versus acoustic guitar

When learning to play the guitar, it is important to know the differences between acoustic and electric guitars:

  • Appearance: While the acoustic guitar has a more traditional look, electric guitars differ in that they have a unique style. They are elongated and pointed, as opposed to the rounded curves of acoustic guitars.
  • Sound: Acoustic guitars do not need to be connected to an amplifier, so they emit a more classical sound, while electric guitars need an amplifier, so their sound is totally different. Moreover, their sound can be modified and give different effects depending on the type of music you want to play.
  • Soundboard: This element in acoustic guitars gives it a lot of personality. Electric guitars, on the other hand, have a solid body since the sounds are emitted by electrical signals that are sent by the vibration of the strings.
  • Guitar picks: Electric guitars usually need picks to transmit the vibration to the strings. Acoustic guitars, on the other hand, do not usually need picks, although their use is often recommended in guitar lessons for beginners.
  • Accessories: While acoustic guitars do not need any additional accessories beyond a strap and case, electric guitars need an amplifier and pedals to reproduce the sound.

What can I learn in guitar lessons?

There are different ways to learn to play the electric and acoustic guitar, but whichever way you choose, learning to play the guitar has many benefits. Guitar lessons are not only useful for learning how to play the guitar, but also for:

  • Improving social development: Practising the guitar, especially if done in a group, helps to improve and develop children's socialisation. One of the main advantages of this instrument is that it can be played alone or accompanied by other instruments such as the piano.
  • Considerably improves concentration: Private guitar lessons favour the development of concentration, as it is an instrument that requires the activation of all mental and intellectual capacities.
  • Discipline: Attending guitar lessons encourages the development of discipline, because it is no secret that in order to play the guitar correctly it is essential to spend many hours practising and making mistakes in order to correct them afterwards.

Finding the ideal guitar tutor

To choose the best guitar tutor for you, you should take into account these tips:

  • Look for reviews and recommendations: It is important that you look for recommendations and reviews of the private guitar tutor from previous students to make sure they are a good teacher. This is a very important resource to save time and money when choosing your music tutor.
  • Choose an experienced tutor: Everyone learns differently and at different speeds. It is therefore essential that guitar tutor that you choose is experienced, this way they will have dealt with lots of different types of students
  • Establish what kind of tutor you want: Obviously, a professional and experienced music tutor will know exactly what is best for each student. However, you should also consider whether you want in-person or online tuition.

The teaching process should be fun: We know you are finding tutors to learn a new instrument, but don't forget that these are guitar lessons. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or advanced, you should always make sure to have fun. It doesn't matter how talented and skilled the teacher is, but if the lesson becomes boring, it will affect your learning.

In-person vs online lessons

You might be wondering whether it´s better to find guitar lessons in person or online. This is a personal choice and depends on a variety of factors including your availability and schedule, as well as your learning style. Perhaps you feel that taking presencial classes would hold you accountable and motivate you to keep up with the guitar. As well as this, if you´re a beginner at guitar, it may be easier for your guitar tutor to correct your form or hear if you´re having any tuning issues with your guitar with in-person tuition.

However, with the advance in technology and the quality of online platforms, it´s become easier than ever to take online music lessons. You can still communicate with your online guitar tutor in real time, they can share various online rescources with you, and you can even record the lessons so that you can go back and review them later.
