Would they really be worth it, or would lessons in real life benefit me more?

Or if there's some good lessons out there that someone could direct me to, that would be good too
I would go with lessons in person, I personally take in more when I have someone to show me and explain in person. Sometimes not all the answers are there in text... Where a teacher has more of a chance to answer your questions you ask, well should be more likely.

Just my opinion
Face to face lessons are by far the best choice. This site does have some good lessons on theory though.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.

theory states 1+1=2 sometimes in music 1+1=3.
personal lessons are the best. if you dont understand something you can always ask
