Are you expensive?

Take our word for it – cheap guitar lessons will cause more damage to your guitar playing skills than any good. When it comes to guitar lessons, it is not the price that matters but the skills and experience of the teacher and the quality of the sessions. A great guitar teacher in Edmonton area comes as a decent price because he/she will require a reasonable payment.

However, that doesn’t just mean that I am  expensive. Don’t expect us to be the cheapest in the Edmonton area, but you should also not expect to achieve your goals with the cheapest one out there!

Can you provide some advice on how I could find a teacher who can really help me?

Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitar player, finding the right teacher is the most important decision you could take in your career as a musician. Most students will make a decision on the basis of the location and price. They tend to choose the cheapest teacher who is closest to them. If you want to make guitar playing as a serious business, this is not the right approach. Before you choose a music teacher, it is most important that you are sure that you can trust him or her. Would you ever choose a physician or a lawyer with price being the main determining factor?
