What Families Say About Us

Why Guitar Lessons?

The question you may be asking right now is, why guitar? The guitar is an incredibly unique and special instrument. It is a blend of many wonderful instruments like the harp, the violin, and even the drum, to create a wonderfully melodic instrument that is relatively simple to learn. Every genre of music in our culture relies on guitar and your child may be the next prodigy to bring music and guitar to the next level! 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.
