Details And FAQs
Q: What does an online class or lesson look like?
A: Online classes or lessons are exactly the same format as in-person classes and private lessons with the exact same teachers — only you get to play from the comfort of your own home. Instruction is real-time and all you need is your guitar, Internet connection, a computer, or a mobile device.

Q: How long are lessons?
Private lessons are 45 minutes long. (Group classes meet for one hour sessions.)

Q: How much is tuition for lessons?
A: The trial lesson is discounted and runs from $50 to $60 depending on location. After the trial you can continue with individual lessons at $80 - $100 per lesson, however most of our students take advantage of our discounted lesson sets. Complete pricing is shown below:

Q: What are on-going sets of 5 lessons?
A: You can use a debit or credit card to purchase a discounted set of five lessons. After your fifth lesson, your card will automatically run for the next set of five. This is not a contract! You can stop lessons at any time and receive a FULL refund of unused lessons.  This is our most discounted lesson package.   Do you prefer to pay with check or cash?  ...or do you prefer not to be on auto-renew? You can also purchase a prepaid set of 10 lessons at a 10% discount. Just call our friendly staff to find out!

A: No, it's super easy! After you schedule your lesson, we will email you a link for the lesson. Just save that email, and then click the link before the lesson begins.

Q: How do I prepare for my first lesson?
