Payments are due in advance of bookings.

The following are rates for 30 minute lessons:

 Kyle Hancock $30.00 per lesson

Policies and rates may vary with each teacher. Below are the policies for lessons with Robert Putt.

If it is a 5 week month, the lesson studio will be closed on days that would fall on the 5th week.

There will be no refunds for missed lessons. The time was booked and we have to charge for it. It would not be fair to our teachers to suffer income loss due to frequent cancellations of any kind. However, we will issue a make-up credit if 24-hour notice was given. You have 120 days to use your make-up credit provided there is a make-up slot open in our schedule.

This cancellation policy includes scheduled vacations. Our studio would suffer much income loss if we allowed exceptions for vacations. Please keep in mind if you cancel lessons for the month of a scheduled vacation, you risk losing your slot to a new student sign-up.

Make-up lessons can be canceled by the studio if it is scheduled during one of our open slots and a new student sign-up needs that slot for their lessons. If that happens, we will issue you a new make-up credit.

Make-up lesson slots will be visible on the calendar through your student portal. If a student cancels, that time slot will be converted to a make-up slot. There will be no refunds for make-up credits. Make-up credits have no cash value and cannot be applied towards any invoices. You may book a make-up lessons through your student portal.

If a teacher is sick or on vacation, we will provide you with a make-up lesson or issue a credit on your next billing statement.

The studio will be closed on these Holidays :

New Years Eve

Bob has been a great teacher for our daughter, who has been taking lessons for more than a year. He's patient and very laid-back when working with our laid-back kid -- and it's teaching her that learning to play an instrument, even when there are stumbling blocks, can be a joy, not a chore. They're working on both acoustic and electric, and he chooses music that stretches her skills a bit and takes her musical taste into consideration. Plus, he's a great musician himself -- not all musicians can teach, but he can, and does it well.
 My 12 year old son took lessons with Robert at his old studio. Wonderful instructor and patient. Worked well with my son. Got my sons guitar at a great price and amp from him as well. Will continue to use him for any guitars/supplies. Unfortunately with his relocation too far for us to travel or else would still be seeing him for lessons! Wonderful guy!!
Our 7 year old daughter has loved her acoustic guitar lessons with Bob at Robert Putt Studio! We appreciated his patient guidance from first introduction. She loved the lesson time, especially when he demonstrated some of the other guitars and equipment; which he always graciously accommodated whenever she asked. He always took the time to answer her questions thoroughly, he was positive and sincere in his encouragement and critiques, and he always made time for her to share her own creativity during their lessons. I can't say enough good things about his studio, his kind instruction, and his professional talent.

I am a new student of Robert Putt studios. I have been attending for 2 months, and have found Bob's guidance, patience, and teaching theory to be fantastic. If you want a teacher who can help your guitar training down whatever path you choose, he is a great choice for this area. I highly recommend him.

We are very pleased with Pauls progress. I appreciate the way you are enthusiastic about his personal music interests and also keep introducing him to scales and exercises that help him gain an understanding of all the important elements of music and guitar playing. He has really come a long way with your help! 
Thanks-Mike Witmer

Great teacher, even better guy. If you're looking for guitar lessons in Lancaster look no further, he is your man. I came to him with no prior knowledge on how to play the guitar and I've progressed much further than I ever would have expected in less than 6 months of lessons. Also, the man is a legend at playing guitar.

My daughter is 8 and has been taking guitar lessons at Robert putt studios for about a year and a half, she makes improvement every week and he gives her the instruction she needs to get there. He makes it very fun and interesting to make you improve. I Would highly recommend

Two lessons so far and things are great. He is very good with teaching my 8 year old son (and I can play with the display guitars during practice).

My son and I both are students of Bob Putt.
My son has been taking lessons from Bob for about 6 months on a weekly basis and I take them every other week.

From the first lesson, I have seen a great improvement in my sons performance and his attitude towards learning to play. Bob takes the time to make sure my son understands what he is being shown and tailors the practice assignments to his level allowing him to learn and improve at a rate that does not frustrate or bore him.

I would highly recommend Bob as a teacher. As a parent of a student and a student as well, I have had nothing other than a positive experience in the time we have been students of  Bobs.

Thank you,

To Prospective Students Mother,

 I would like you to know that I have known Mr. Bob Putt for 1 1/2 years. I have found him to be an exceptional teacher in guitar and a great human being. Feel assured to know that your child will get a tremendous musical education. My abilities and knowledge with the guitar  have improved greatly. I am sure that he will do the same for your child. 

I know that your concern for the well being of your child is of the utmost importance. As a retired New York City Firefighter, I understand about the safety of loved ones, and the part that plays in our lives. Rest assured that your child will be getting the best musical education, in a safe and nurturing environment with a great person.

As a student of Bob Putt"s I would mention first that he is a very nice person.
As a guitar instructor, he is very knowledgeable not only in theory ,but in techniques and styles.
He is also very accommodating to a student's needs and wishes as to what the student might want to learn.
I would highly recommend Bob as a guitar instructor.

My daughter, Kristi Pfister, has been taking lessons from Robert Putt Studios for almost a year. She has learned a lot and is having a lot of fun doing so. He works very well with her and is very patient. He talks with her about different forms of music. I have recommened Bob in the past and will continue to do so if I know of someone looking to take lessons.

 "Bob is an extremely effective teacher. The way he has developed my daughters musicality in just a few short weeks of her starting classes is amazing. His greatest asset is not only his level of expertise but his ability to engage my daughter in the lessons/instructional time and to inspire her to practice more. He is transforming her from a ear learned natural talent to a well balanced student versed in theory, timing and technique. I can't wait to see the progression after year one!!!" 

Elizabeth Murphy 

Being an older student, I see qualities in Bob that make for a very good teacher. Patience, knowledge and professionalism are some of the traits he practices. It doesn’t take long to see how he brings out the best in a student.

my guitar playing has dwindled over the past couple of years as I had hit a wall and had a hard time finding the right focus areas to improve. Bob has done a great job of selecting lessons and focus areas to bring my guitar playing to the next level, and greatly increase my motivation to continue playing. I would definitely recommend Bob for guitar students from beginner to advanced level.
