And that's not expensive at all by East Coast standards!

That's a good rate where I live as well. It's what I pay and honestly I feel like I'm underpaying my teacher.

That would be 45 dollars per class. Wow kind of expensive. Also take into account I'm not from USA (Argentina) but an hour class IF a professor goes to your house is about 8-10 dollars equivalent.
But hey if you can afford it and works for you, great.
In the United States, a McDonalds fry cook makes about $9 per hour. A teenaged baby sitter makes roughly $12 per hour.

I doubt there’s a single college educated guitar teacher in the entire USA who charges $10 per hour or less. In fact, $45 per hour is on the low side.

Also bear in mind that the cost of living in the USA is higher than in Argentina. Different countries—different norms.

Makes sense, different countries, different rates. Hell I even remember one therapist told me one of their patients lives in USA (L.A.) and teaches tennis, charging 100 dollars per hour, I was amused, but then again, Los Angeles should be a very expensive place.

Wow! That's unheard of, at least in my town. I'm in Nebraska from the US. These were the cheapest classes I can find. My original instructor would've been $240/mo. $60 for an hour.
Yeah, going rate here in Seattle (USA), is $60 -$75/hour. And you go to their studio.
