Updated the screenshots with JamPlay's new interface and made note of the current promotional pricing. The monthly option is the same, but the yearly price has actually gotten a little cheaper.
JamPlay Cost and Membership Price
Pricing Model through 2023
For monthly memberships, JamPlay charges $19.95 per month, which gives you access to everything on the site. If you pay by the year, that price drops to $13.33 per month, for a total of $159.96 per year.
Of all the online guitar lessons I've used and reviewed, JamPlay boasts one of the most balanced lesson selections in terms of skill level, making them one of my favorite recommendations for intermediate players.
As with most guitar lesson websites, it has a multi-tiered pricing system, broken down by month and year. They also have separate regular and promotional pricing, where the promotional rates can change depending on the time of the year.
Simple Cost Breakdown
Here's a breakdown of JamPlay's most common pricing model:
- Monthly Membership: $19.95
- Yearly Membership: $159.95 (about $13 per month)
- Yearly Pro Membership: $299 (about $25 per month)
We try to keep these pages updated and current, but you can check pricing directly on JamPlay's website here.
JamPlay also provides a 30-day money back guarantee which is helpful, though a slimmer margin for error than the 60 days you get with a Guitar Tricks membership.
There used to be a quarterly option with JamPlay, which is no longer offered. Instead, it has been replaced by a yearly "Pro" membership which includes more course credits (you can buy individual courses) and 1-on-1 consultation with certain instructors.
- Yearly Membership (PRO): $299.95 (about $25 per month)
What about JamPlay's promotional pricing?
As I mentioned, JamPlay runs promotions for their memberships on a fairly regular basis, though particularly around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Those promotional price cuts are far more significant for the monthly and yearly PRO memberships, but not so much for the regular yearly membership.
- Monthly Promotional Discount: Steep (75 percent)
- Yearly Promotion Discount: Small (five to 15 percent)
- Yearly PRO Promotional Discount: Steep (50 percent)
I don't want to mention really specific promotional pricing because it is subject to change. However, you can check JamPlay for promotional offers here.
Does JamPlay offer a free trial?
JamPlay does offer a free trial period of seven days and another for 30 days (if you sign up with a credit card), which you can access here.
For whatever reason, the free trial is not heavily advertised or at least not emphasized on their homepage. Last time I setup an account - which has been awhile because I've been a member for a long time - they only asked for an email address and not a credit card to keep on file. Currently, I believe they do ask for a credit card along with your email address, though this is an extremely common industry practice, not just for online music lessons but for most online membership-based sites in general.
Once the trial runs out, you'll still have access to a limited account, that can be upgraded later if you decide to keep going.
Reviews & Additional Questions
I've worked with guys from JamPlay and have written extensively about their program, as it's one of my favorites, both for personal use and for recommending to others. If you want more information on the program, you can read my JamPlay review or checkout one of these comparison pages:
If you have other questions about how much JamPlay costs, their pricing model or something I haven't mentioned here, leave it in the comments section below, and I'll do my best to help out.
Thanks for the info, but Jamplay must have changed their conditions for a free trial. I used your link and to get the free month, they wanted not only my email, but also my credit card info – NO WAY!

Hey, Mike – thanks for the comment and for the updated information.
I went ahead and changed the article to reflect this, though I would also add that this is an extremely common industry practice for online membership sites, generally.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
