Here’s what you need to offer guitar lessons online:

- Your local students will have the option of learning to play the guitar online, or they could come to you personally for one-to-one or group lessons.
- As far as the students are concerned, they can get started with the basics and even play simple songs using the resources & videos available on Youtube, but they will definitely need help to learn the right techniques.
