Pittsburgh Guitars has been in business for over 30 years,
and we offer private, individual guitar lessons
at our store on Pittsburgh's South Side.

Our teachers provide lessons to a wide variety of skill levels and to all ages,
from complete beginners to musicians that want to brush up on theory and technique.

Whether you're interested in learning acoustic styles, blues, jazz, or "Hey! I just want to learn
some chords so that I can play guitar around the campfire!" we can get you there.

Each lesson is tailored to your skill level,
preferred style of music, and your goals in learning to play.

Lesson Fees
$34 for 1 Hour Lesson
$19 for 1/2 Hour Lesson

Some books may be
required for instruction.

Payment Policy
When you sign up for lessons,
we'll ask you to pay for your
first lesson in advance, to hold the spot.
Then when you come to your first lesson, you'll pay for your second lesson, and so on. That way, you're always paid ahead to your next scheduled lesson.
You must remain current in
payments to keep your
reserved lesson time.
