Frequently Asked Questions

guitar lessons

Are guitar lessons worth taking?

In addition to the obvious musical benefits that are gained when taking lessons with a guitar teacher, such as learning various techniques, theory, and a wide repertoire of songs, there are even more nonmusical benefits that come along with it. These nonmusical benefits are worth their weight in gold!

First, taking guitar lessons helps improve discipline and time management skills. Learning to play an instrument requires regular practice sessions, which enhances one's ability to stick to a schedule and manage time effectively.

Additionally, learning to play the guitar can boost self-confidence and self-esteem. As one progresses and gradually masters new skills, it instills a sense of accomplishment and provides a tangible form of self-expression.

Moreover, taking guitar lessons can improve cognitive skills such as memory, concentration, and problem-solving abilities. Learning to read sheet music or tabs, analyzing chord progressions, and coordinating multiple movements all require mental agility and focus.

Lastly, playing guitar can be a great stress-reliever. Music has the power to soothe the soul and lift spirits, providing an avenue for relaxation and emotional expression. Hence, the non-musical benefits derived from guitar lessons can have a tremendous impact on an individual's overall well-being and personal growth.

How much does it cost to get a guitar lesson?

I pride myself on affordable guitar lesson rates.  I charge $190 per month for weekly one hour lessons, and $95 per month for weekly 30 minute lessons. 

At Guitar School of Texas, I'm passionate about music and I want you to learn!  That's why I'm confident your first lesson will never be your last!  I'm sure you'll be back because I will instill in you the same love and passion for communicating through the guitar that I have!

What is the first thing a beginner guitarist should learn?

The first thing a beginner guitar player should learn is how to hold the guitar and the basic open chords. Proper technique is crucial in order to play comfortably and avoid injury. Learning how to hold the guitar correctly will allow for better control and maneuverability.

Additionally, understanding the basic open chords, such as C, D, E, G, and A, is essential for playing a wide range of songs. These chords serve as a foundation for countless songs in various genres, allowing beginners to play along with their favorite tunes and build confidence. Mastering these fundamentals will lay a solid groundwork for progressing further in guitar playing.
