Learning Guitar as a Child
We all wish we started learning an instrument at a younger age, even when we start from age 10, we always wish our parents got us playing the guitar sooner, because then we would be even more amazing than we am now! The most important thing we also need to think about is, how can you get your child to be enthusiastic about playing, I remember when I was younger and some teachers were a lot more fun than others, that I would be more enthusiastic about practising because I liked the teacher and the songs we were playing. When you enjoy the learning process, it ensures that you carry on when others may give up, and also it accelerates your learning much quicker. That means even if a child starts when they are older, they can still learn quickly and become an amazing player.
Getting a Guitar Teacher
A lot of parents are great at understanding the importance of having a guitar teacher, you wouldn't let you kids watching a week of olympic diving videos on youtube and then let them do a 10m dive at the end of the week, and why treat the guitar that way? The internet and videos for guitar teaching is a world of distraction and apps and video games just add to the overwhelm of content that a child is exposed to. It adds confusion, and gets them to pick up bad habits when playing, and can also be frustrating for them to the point that they may stop enjoying playing the guitar and it lowers their self confidence. While we all agree that videos, the internet is not the best way for a child to learn. Getting the right guitar teacher is often a difficult task too.
The difference between the usual and the best parents are the ones who are able to get the child really engaged in their guitar learning by getting them the best teacher who understands how a child learns. A really great teacher is able to help your child enjoy the process of learning music and is able to engage them both throughout the lesson and get them excited enough to practise through the week.
Our Experience and process of helping your child learn
We are fortunate that we have had been able to help many children find their enjoyment in music and keep their passion so they play for years. Having had years of experience both in teaching and managing music schools, we understand the importance of creating a positive environment for children, allowing them to express themselves and gain confidence and musical skill at the same time. We have a specific process that we will go through with both yourself and your child to ensure that when they learn the guitar, they really enjoy the process and is having fun while doing it. And for you, you will clearly be able to see how fast your child is progressing as well and understand what they need to do at home in order to progress.
We pride ourselves on taking comprehensive program and process we have to ensure that students get the most of learning. Their success is our success. Through having a get to know each other and a tailored plan, we can ensure that both your child and yourself are clear on your goals and targets and fast they can expect to progress. Playing the guitar and enjoying the lessons is also one of the most important aspects of learning. We also provide a lot of support to parents, especially if the family don't play an instrument, it is important to have an understanding of how the child should be practising, to get the most out of learning at home. And how to support their child as well. Learning an instrument is fun but it's not always easy, and knowing how to get past challenges and obstacles, will dramatically increase your child's self esteem and confidence.

Common Questions from Parents and Family
Is the Guitar the right instrument for my child?
The guitar is a great instrument for kids because they can immediate start playing some of their favourite songs. A lot of music they listen to have guitar in so it allows them to engage with the instrument easier. It is also very portable, and found in most people's homes. In comparison to other instruments, they are much more likely to carry on playing this into their adulthood. Even if they already play other instruments, guitar is such a great accompaniment. And great for singing with as well.
How old does my child have to be to start?
We normally recommend five years old, but that's also why we have a free assessment lesson, so we can look at each child on an individual basis as it can vary.
What are the benefits of my child learning guitar?
There are numerous benefits to learning guitar and music, if you would like to find out more read our page: Benefits of Your Child Taking Guitar Lessons. To name a few, learning the guitar improves their confidence, social interactions, even improve their intelligence.
How do I know this will work for my child?
We have had a lot of experience working with both adults and children in teaching guitar, and with that comes experience. We know what works to get them to enjoy playing guitar and see progress.
How do I know what you are teaching them is correct?
We are part of an international group of elite guitar teachers, where we share best practises with each other to ensure we are teaching the best methods and best techniques. Because there are so many wrong ways of playing the guitar, it's vital that the right techniques are taught the first time round.
How much time will they have to practise?
It depends on the age of the child, on average, it's around 20 minutes a day. When we have our assessment lesson together, and throughout your child's learning with us, we will communicate and support the family to ensure they know what is expected at home to ensure your child is doing their best.
I don't know how to play an instrument, does that matter?
No that doesn't matter at all, we will give you and your family the best support to make sure you are confidently and comfortable when speaking to your child regarding their lessons.
I actually want to learn guitar for me too! Do you teach adults?
