How much should I pay for guitar lessons?

The answer is:

For starters, you’ll probably want to be able to play an instrument for an extended period of time.

Here’s a typical scenario. You learn a guitar in college. At the end of your classes, you need to make arrangements to buy instruments at your local music shop, or, more likely, buy instruments online. In the first case, you may not be going into the shop that often, so you might want to get your guitar in your hands by looking for a few weeks or months before you think about going into the shop or buying online. If you can’t, consider doing a few sessions with someone who can help you.

There are several ways to pay for guitar lessons. You can get the course by buying a guitar on your own or by getting a guitar to teach at your local music shop. You can pay by the class. You can pay with a deposit. Your deposit can be split with a teacher in return for the lesson (if applicable) or in cash if the teacher is paying you directly, but paying your own is a very easy way to pay on your own.


There is one caveat with the payments for guitar lessons: you may not be guaranteed a certain number of lessons per week, but you will get a certain amount of practice time. For example, if you teach for 5 days a week, you should get approximately 3 hours of practice time a week. You can ask the instructor what that number is and get him to estimate it based on his or her experience. The instructor can give you a reasonable estimate of what that number is for an advanced level student. You may need another hour each week of practice time, which will depend on your level of expertise. You also may not get all three hours or maybe only half of the three hours if there was no rest period in between lessons. The instructor will usually give you a breakdown of what the rest of your classes will cost.

This calculator is very basic and assumes that a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level student will already know how to play a guitar and is ready to learn how to play a new position or chord type. This calculator can be very helpful in finding the correct payment for a beginner or intermediate level or advanced level student.
