Yeah it can be tricky, some people are just anti-lessons until they run into problems later.

The way I always convinced friends is to get them to split a private lesson between a group of them. That way everyone can stick together, the cost isn't as absurd, and they get lessons at the same time so they don't spend 3 hours figuring out what they could learnt in 10 minutes.
