Why Guitar Lessons For Kids?

You might be wondering why guitar over other instruments? While we teach many other instruments, the guitar is a great choice when starting kids with music lessons. The guitar is an incredibly unique and special instrument. Every genre of music in our culture relies on guitar, and it’s a skill that will improve a student’s cognitive abilities as well as give them many opportunities to practice and perform. The most important step in learning how to play guitar is to find an experienced guitar teacher who’s both motivational and fun.

While kids see playing guitar as something fun and cool, Parents can rest assured that their child is learning a critical skill that goes beyond having fun. Learning to play an instrument, especially one like guitar, helps children acquire and develop important critical listening skills, helps with focus and attention, and even stimulates them cognitively, all while providing a constructive hobby for them to engage with. Learning how to match your strumming hand with your fingering hand helps children with sensory motor integration, timing, and rhythm.

Most parents know that music can enrich a child’s life. One of the regrets many parents have is not learning to play an instrument. Lessons in Your Home, specializes in private in home (or school) guitar lessons for kids. While we do have many adult learners, the vast majority of our students are kids. We cater to all ages as young as kindergarten on.

We Put Your Family and Child First

At Lessons in Your Home, we strive to cultivate a love and understanding of music in children. A majority of the students that take lessons from our organization are children! It is also proven that the younger a person is when starting an instrument, the easier they are able to master that instrument and the easier future instruments become to master. In addition, many of our younger students go on to master more than just the guitar, but it all starts with those first guitar lessons whether with a personal teacher or through virtual music lessons. However, at Lessons in Your Home we also support adult learners, so it’s never too late to start pursuing a new hobby! Our teachers are paired with families in order to create the most effective relationships. It is important to us that your family feels that the instructor is safe, trustworthy, and comfortable to work with.

Guitar Lesson FAQs

What is the best age to start guitar lessons?

Learning guitar is great for all ages, and a person can start as young as 4 years old. While you can start that young, it’s important to contact us about the size and stringed type of guitar you intend for your child to learn on. The guitar can come in scaled sizes for students of younger ages. Typical sizes include 1/2 scale, best for students 4-7, 3/4 scale, best for students 8-11, and full sized which works well for most students 12 years old and up.

Should I learn on an electric guitar or acoustic guitar?

You can technically learn on either. It really depends on what your goals and desires are for learning guitar. In general, learning on an acoustic is more “foundational” for understanding the guitar as a whole. Young learners will also develop more finger strength on an acoustic, which will make switching to electric much easier. But if your child has a natural inclination to electric guitar, start them out on that!

What guitar equipment do I need to prepare before starting guitar lessons?

Besides the guitar itself, there’s not a whole lot more you need. We’d recommend having these things to improve and speed up learning: 

  • Picks – Learning how to play the guitar with a pick helps young guitarists strum the strings. There’s all sorts of pic sizes and thickness. When starting out, a pack of medium or soft pics will aid in learning. 
  • Guitar Strap – If you want to play or practice standing up, then a strap is a must. Plus, guitar straps can be customized can give kids a sense of personality. 
  • Spare Strings – Strings break down over time and need changing based on how frequently you play. It is always handy to have extra strings on hand when one string breaks, when they start to feel rusty, or when you want to improve the tone of your guitar. 
  • Tuner – Having a well-tuned instrument is key to sounding good and staying on pitch. You’ll want to start each practice by tuning your guitar as weather, humidity, and other variables can make your strings go flat or sharp. 
  • Metronome – While you can still learn the guitar without a metronome, practicing with it at home can ensure good rhythm when playing. It is especially important when planning to play with other musicians. There are tons of devices or free apps that you can use. 

When in doubt, ask your guitar teacher! They’ll help you guide you in what you need to be successful.

Will my fingers hurt when I play the guitar?

Sore fingers when first learning guitar is completely normal. Don’t worry; as you practice more, muscle strength in your forearm and calluses on your fingers will develop. The pain will go away pretty quickly in time. If necessary, there are some ways to lessen the pain when practicing such as using lighter strings. Ask your guitar teacher about this if you’re dealing with pain!

How much time should I spend practicing the guitar?

Any practice is better than no practice. In fact, there is no magic number of minutes because we teach that consistency is the key to success. We’d rather our students play for 10 minutes a day daily rather than 60 minutes in one sitting in a week. One of the benefits of private lessons is that our teachers will give recommendations to your practice time and habits based on your child’s learning style. There’s a lot to consider on an individual student level for how much time should be spent practicing.

Is it important to be able to read music when learning the guitar?

You don’t have to read sheet music to start learning guitar! Long term, our goal for our students is to help them be independent as musicians. Reading sheet music, or learning the ability to learn a piece of new music, is foundational to that goal.

How long does it take to be good at playing the guitar?

When you learn an instrument in the right way, you’re not going to want to stop learning. That’s the best part of having a professional private music teacher! With that in mind, students are able to play songs from the first few lessons. But remember, even the “greats” are still learning. Eric Clapton famously refers to himself as still learning and trying to get better at the guitar, so there’s always room for learning and improvement.
