Comparing Acoustic, classical and electric guitars
Guitar lessons in Montreal


What is the price of guitar lessons in Montreal?

30 minutes: $ 25.61
45 minutes: $ 32.30
60 minutes: $ 39.00
This is an average of the prices of guitar lessons in Montreal.
The price of a guitar lesson varies based on the length of the lessons and the experience of the teacher.

What type of guitar is the easiest to learn?

As a beginner, the classical guitar is easier to play because of its nylon strings. Nylon strings are softer on the fingers than metal strings.
The electric guitar is also quite easy on the fingers as the action (the distance between the strings and the neck) is closer (therefore easier) than an acoustic guitar.

What is the most difficult guitar to play?

The acoustic guitar is the most difficult to play because of its far action and metal strings. It takes time to build up the necessary strength and calluses on your fingers before you feel comfortable playing an acoustic guitar.

Where can I buy a guitar in Montreal?

Steve’s or Archambault is a great place to buy your first guitar. They have a great selection of guitars ranging from $ 150 to $ 1000. You can also search Facebook Market Place or Kijiji and find a used guitar that is still in excellent condition.
Be sure to ask around or search the internet to make sure you’ve found a quality instrument before you buy.

How much does a beginner guitar cost?

A new beginner guitar costs between $ 100 and $ 200. Steve’s Music Store has a great selection of guitars in this price range.
It is recommended to start with a classical guitar because they have nylon strings which are much easier on the fingers.
This will allow you to learn faster, which greatly helps beginners navigate the often frustrating early stages of learning the instrument.

Which classical guitar should I buy for my child?

3-7 years: $ 159.99 Yamaha – CGS102A Guitar 1/2 (classic half size)
8-11 years old: $ 169.99 Yamaha – CS40 (classic 7/8 size)
