Lesson Locations/Formats & Rates

​I teach private, one-on-one guitar lessons at 2 locations and the rates are different depending on the location. I also teach online lessons for advanced students via a free conferencing platform and webcam.

I offer the following…

  • Lessons at my McDonough home studio ($20 per weekly 1/2 hr. lesson / Paid Monthly)
  • Lessons at Whole Note Music Store ($30 per weekly 1/2 hr. lesson / Paid Monthly)
  • Online Lessons ($20 per weekly 1/2 hr. lesson / Paid Monthly)

Details are explained below for Each Lesson Location…

Lessons at my Home Studio in McDonough

129 Vintage Trail, McDonough, GA 30253 

My Lesson Days at this location are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings. 

Lessons at my McDonough Home Studio are a month-to-month commitment. The lesson tuition is $80 per month for 4 weeks/4 lessons or $100 when there’s 5 weeks/5 lessons, based on $20 each weekly 1/2 hr. session. This is a fixed lesson tuition rate which reserves your time slot for the month, regardless if lessons are missed (planned or unplanned). This works much the same as paying for a college class or a sports activity. Lessons are pro-rated when a new student starts lessons in the middle of the month. I offer make up lessons if I’m notified of a missed lesson at least 24-hours in advance.

Lesson Payment Due Date: Lesson payments are due on the last lesson of the month for the following month, at the very latest by the 1st lesson/week of the month. 

Please Note: If lessons are not paid up by the 1st week’s lesson, I reserve the right to refuse to teach the lesson when the student shows up for their 2nd lesson in the month if no payment is yet made. The time slot will not be reserved for the month without payment and will be made available to be sold to another student.

Lessons at Whole Note Music Store in Stockbridge

1508 Hudson Bridge Road · Stockbridge, GA 30281

Lessons are also given at Whole Note Music Store,, located in the Walmart shopping plaza on Hudson Bridge Rd in Stockbridge.

My lesson days at the music store are Tuesday evenings and all day Saturday. The rest of the week I teach out of my McDonough Home Studio.

The lesson tuition at the music store is $120 per month for 4 weeks/4 lessons or $150 when there’s 5 weeks/5 lessons. ($30 per the weekly 1/2 hr. session). There is a $30 sign-up fee.

The store has it’s own policies regarding lessons and handles all of the scheduling and transactions. To get a slot at Whole Note Music store, call the store at: Tel: 678-432-1400. When requesting lessons at Whole Note Music Store, please mention your interest in taking lessons with me, Jim Cruz, since we have 2 guitar teachers at that location. The other guitar teacher was a former student of mine and is also a capable teacher.

Online Private Lessons – Advanced Students Only:

Online lessons are weekly 30-minute Lessons ($20 per lesson, paid by the month)  You’ll have a set weekly time slot. This is a month-to-month commitment and is prepaid to reserve your spot for the month. Available time slots are any of the same weeknight slots posted at my website for my McDonough Home Studio lessons. 

Lessons must be pre-paid using Cash App. Payment is not required until after the lessons slot is scheduled and confirmed. Policies about missed lessons and make up lessons are the same as posted above for my McDonough Home Studio lessons.
