I typically charge $40 to $45 an hour for lessons in my studio, depending on the method of payment.
Individual Weekly Lessons:
Lessons are usually one hour long and occur weekly at a set time. I try to be as flexible as I can with scheduling to make it convenient for people to take guitar lessons, so even if you have a strange work schedule or a limited budget, I can usually find a way to make it work.
I have had many students team up with friends or family members to take lessons, and I have had much experience teaching guitar in a classroom setting as well. Often times learning with someone else can be more motivating and fun. It can also save you money if you are sharing the cost with someone else. Rates vary depending on the specific situation, but in most cases I charge a flat rate of $50 per hour for a group lesson of 2 or more.
Most of my students come weekly at a set time. If you are interested in lessons every other week or would like to take a lesson from me once in a while, you can schedule into any open spot from lesson to lesson when I have available times. It is as simple as emailing or texting me and asking me for my openings for the week and scheduling a lessons. I have many students and former students who take lessons monthly or just when they need help or new material. I teach 6 days a week so I always have openings.
I teach almost all my guitar lessons from my studio in Scottsdale and very rarely have the time in my schedule for in-home lessons. In some cases, I am willing to travel to a location to provide instruction, but with travel time and expenses it becomes very costly, ranging from $80 to $100 per lesson. If you are looking for in-home lessons, feel free to contact me to see if we can make it work.
Jam Sessions are free for students who are currently taking lessons. Jam sessions occur at my studio every 4 to 6 weeks, usually on a Friday from 7pm to 9pm. I have drums, bass, keys, and a great PA sound system in my studio and strive to create a low pressure fun environment for my students to make music in. Whatever style you play, whether it be singing and performing on an acoustic or improvising blues solos or showing off your own original compositions, all my students are welcome to participate and guests are always welcome.
