Ottawa's go-to in-home and virtual music lessons

5 Star Reviewed We Come To You Trial Lesson

My daughter is loving her learning and is having a blast. Paul, her instructor, is extremely patient and kind with her. I am really impressed with the level of professionalism and skills that this company has. They are accommodating when a change needs to happen. Throughout the pandemic they have maintained communication with us and ensured that our online lessons are smooth and supporting all our needs! I am so happy I found Go Guitar, if you're looking for a fabulous company to work with, look no further!

10 out of 10. Francis has been terrific. A good mix of practical stuff and theory. I've been noodling around with the guitar for 50+ years and I pick up something new and useful every week. Highly recommend.

We were looking for lessons for our son who was starting from scratch on guitar. We started with in-person lessons which had to switch to virtual during the pandemic. We can't say enough about both the teacher (Sean) and the owner (Francis). Sean has helped our son with the basics of guitar with a focus on music he likes (Red Hot Chili Peppers!). Francis is excellent with communication, super responsive and no surprises. Their policies are fair, open and honest, and the value for money is really great. Anyone looking to sign up for guitar lessons, Go Guitar is a tremendous option.

My son is in his third year of lessons and my other two recently started. Go Guitar Lessons is amazing with our kids and they look forward to their teacher's visit every week!! One of the best parts is that they come to you! Makes busy lives a little less busy and they are happy since they don't have to wait around for their siblings to finish.

Can we come to you if we choose?

No, we do not have a studio in which to conduct lessons. Our service is based on convenience to you so we will come to you in your home or teach virtually.

What ages do you teach?

We teach kids as well as adults. We start as young as age 6 and our oldest student so far is 95. It’s never too late to learn!

We don’t own a guitar or ukulele. Can we still take lessons?

You will need an instrument for your lessons. We do rent guitars for $6 per week while you are learning with us. We can also direct you on what to purchase if that is your choice.

What is the length and frequency of lessons?

To maximize your progress, we offer 30, 45 and 60-minutes weekly lessons. We do not offer bi-weekly lessons. For virtual lessons we can offer multiple lessons per week if you want to supercharge your learning.

Are in-home lessons still happening during COVID?

Yes, unless we are in lockdown, we are still conducting in-home lessons in certain parts of the city.

Do you have discounts for multiple lessons?

We currently offer discounts for back-to-back lessons in the same household for in-home lessons only.
