Starting Children In Guitar Lessons

Starting children in guitar lessons is something that we get a lot here at the studio.

In today’s pop culture, lots of children are seeing their favorite pop stars playing the guitar. Before you start your child in guitar lessons, here a few things you need to know.

Children learn differently than adults

Finding the right teacher for your child will be the first step in ensuring the success at learning to play guitar. Find one that has experience with children, and that your child enjoys taking lessons from. The student/teacher relationship is an important one, and if your child has a hard time understanding the teaching methods of their guitar teacher, or the personalities don’t match, then the student will less likely enjoy lessons.

Mr. Adams, the guitar teacher associated with us, has a Masters Degree in Education, and has been teaching in the public school system for many years.

Children need positive reinforcement, and achievement recognition

Taking guitar lessons should be an engaging way for your child to get positive reinforcement when they’ve got in some good practice before their lesson.  Find a teacher that recognizes that, and your child will be more excited to practice.

Children need guitars that will be best suited for them

Just like not all guitar teachers are the same, the instruments themselves aren’t either.  If you have an old guitar stuffed away in the closet, it might be too big for your child to comfortably play, so check with your teacher on the best options for guitars for children. Dogtown Sound is a great instrument store in North Little Rock to get a start on shopping local. Don’t always trust what you find online. Guitars need special setting up for making playing easier.

Now that you know just few things you need for your child to get started in guitar lessons, we’d like to invite you to reach out to Mr. Adams, and learn more about getting your child started! He can be contacted directly at (501)416-3594
