You may spend a lot of money and not learn much of anything. I joined a college level blue grass guitar class once. This is a world famous program. I could already play fairly well, but I wanted to learn some bluegrass songs. It was a beginners class. I was the only one in the class that could actually tune a guitar. The rest were there just for the credit. We spent a whole semester trying to learn one song. Two foreign students didn't even bother to buy a full set of strings for their guitars. I was seriously P.O.d. I would check out the teacher and try to find some former students to get their opinions of what the class taught them, and was it worth the money.
