Guitar Lessons

Search the international teacher database to find professional guitar teachers local to you or read on to find information about online guitar lessons to enable you to learn to play the guitar from the comfort of your own home.

Guitar lessons are individually tailored to each student, helping them to learn the music that inspired them to pick up a guitar.

Electric & Acoustic Guitar

The teachers within our community most often are able to offer lessons on both the electric and acoustic guitar, catering to students with an array of different musical interests – from indie, rock and metal to folk, jazz and blues.

We even have teachers who specialise in specific genres, like Arthur Stanley who offers Pop Guitar Lessons and Rob Mills who offers Metal Guitar Lessons. The lessons we teach will be tailored to a student’s musical interests, blending the music that inspired them to start playing the guitar with technical exercises designed to build the core skill sets required to play.

For beginner students, guitar teachers will guide them through a course of beginner guitar lessons that help to embed a group of core skills – from learning how to play open course and simple riffs, to playing more complex strum patterns and alternate picking. This will provide the foundations to build upon as students get more advanced.

Reach that next level on guitar

We welcome students of all ages, from younger students to adult learners. We even have teachers specializing in teaching kids guitar lessons. For intermediate and more advanced guitar players, we often explore concepts around areas for improvement – often specific to each guitarist – and more challenging topics like improvisation, creating guitar riffs and getting to grips with how to construct guitar solos.

Music theory, often dreaded by guitarists, is also a core aspect of understanding why a song has been created in a certain way and where you can take your own guitar riffs to create different emotitional responses from the listener. Their is no one route to mastering the guitar, but if you feel you have pleatued in your playing, then taking professional lessons can really help you in that journey.

Students can also explore concepts like stagecraft, specifically in reference to performing at local music venues to audiences that are not familiar with your songs. Many more advanced guitarists are also interested in exploring how to record their guitar parts, both in the studio, but more frequently now from their own homes using common software like Garageband and Logic. No matter what your ambitions on the guitar there will be teachers within this international community of guitar teachers able to help you to improve.

Once a beginner has learned the foundations of how to play the guitar then we look to help them reach that next level, which explores how to use your guitar to communicate with others
Many of the guitar teachers in this community teach students online and via in-person lessons. They use this platform to find more students to teach, helping them build thriving careers as guitar teachers.

Are you a guitar teacher?

I am always looking to invite more guitar teachers to join the international MusicTeacher.com teacher database. In particular, guitar teachers who hold a real passion for helping their students learn to play the music that the student is inspired by. Blending technical exercises, music theory with the songs that their students enjoy listening to and playing.

Our community of guitar teachers are based around the world, with many teaching online, but the majority teaching in-person lessons to students within their local area. To find out more about joining our guitar teacher community visit the Become a Teacher page.
