About Sam

My name is Sam Lyons – Founder of  Best Beginner Guitar Lessons. I was born and raised in Southwest Louisiana, Cajun Country as we like to call it.

I started playing guitar in my late teenage years and began playing with various local bands performing all types of music and started teaching guitar shortly after. I began my teaching business over 40 years ago now and teach both private and group lessons in my guitar studio locally and all around the world online.

In 1975, my wife and I opened a retail guitar store where we sold guitars and guitar equipment to beginner and professional guitarists for many years plus I also taught guitar lessons and we were in business for over 36 years until we retired from the retail business several years ago.

Facts About Best Beginner Guitar Lessons

First, I would like to welcome you to my website. I have played and taught guitar lessons successfully now for over 40 years.

If you want to learn how to play guitar and be able to play your favorite songs like country, blues, rock, folk, jazz, or similar styles, I can and want to help you.

How I Can Help You

Many guitar students come to me wanting to learn how to play their favorite songs, how to improvise or be able to jam with other guitarists and friends or simply wanting to improve their overall guitar skills.

Over the 40+ years I’ve been teaching, I’ve helped thousands of students achieve these goals and if you have similar goals I can help you too.

Benefits You Will Receive As A Guitar Student

In my lessons, I focus on a broad range of student’s goals and needs. If you want to learn how to play songs, I’ll teach what chords and techniques you need to learn any song and master it easily.

In playing professionally and teaching guitar for many years now,  I’ll share my knowledge and apply it to make sure you learn the most important aspects related to your guitar goals.

Like for instance, if you want to understand why a certain song or solo sounds the way it does, I’ll be able to explain it to you and show you how you can create one yourself.
