Advantages of Playing Guitar for Kids

Kids have a lot to gain by learning to play the guitar. Playing guitar is a good way to improve kids’ development, by teaching them discipline, coordination, and learning skills that they can certainly use in other areas.

Guitar lessons are also an ideal way to keep kids entertained in some task that can foster their creativity. When learning to play the guitar, children learn to concentrate and to connect their musical senses to other areas such as motor skills that can help them throughout their lives.

 A Few Tips for Guitar Lessons for Kids


Here are some tips to help getting the most out of guitar lessons for kids.

Find teachers that have real experience with teaching guitar for kids.

There are thousands of guitar teachers, but unfortunately many of them are not qualified to work with kids.

Teaching kids requires the right combination of guitar technique and pedagogic skills. These skills are present only on some people who have previous experience and knowledge.

Look for people teaching a combination of styles

sometimes it can be boring to get classes in only one style. For example, it takes a lot of perseverance to learn only classical guitar.

Traditional music education is centered on classical technique: learning to read music, playing some basic classic pieces and classical technique.

While this may be a good choice for some kids, it might also be a turn off for others. Kids may be interested in more modern music. It is important for teachers to provide a mix of musical styles and techniques, especially when learning the guitar.

For most kids, it may be easier to teach a mix of classical, folk, and pop songs, until the student is able to choose her own path.

Define a schedule

Having a predictable schedule is a factor that can make your teaching sessions more productive.

Avoid having lessons on different times of the day or week, because this make it harder to maintain the schedule of practice and learning.

Compare prices

As in any other kind of service, it is better to contact several people, and select based not only on price, but also on experience.

You may help your kid by getting more lessons, if that is possible. Remember that when you get more lessons, you can also get a discount. This will reduce your total cost over the longer time.
