Details and FAQ's

Online lessons are exactly the same format as in-person 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, and a computer or a mobile device.

Private lessons are 30 or 45 minutes long.

You will need a guitar, a computer (equipped with a camera and a microphone) or even a phone, and an Internet connection!

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.

(We also recommend bookmarking the link so that it is easily accessible!)

This is the number one question we get asked by new students. Meeting a teacher and starting to learn guitar online can be both exciting and—depending on how much experience you have with taking lessons online—a bit daunting. But we’ll help you get ready step by step. When you sign up, we’ll send you a link for a test meeting to make sure that your equipment is ready for your lesson. If you need to download an app or an extension, you’ll be prompted to do so. Just follow the prompts!
