The Guitar

Updated: Nov 14, 2022

Learning the guitar will help your child develop their concentration skills.

As a guitarist, you will have to read music or tabs and play your instrument while paying attention to other musicians. The intricate plucking, picking, and strumming techniques you will learn will improve your coordination and dexterity.

There are three main guitar types:

Acoustic: An acoustic guitar is a traditional, unamplified guitar with six steel or nylon strings.

Electric: An electric guitar is a guitar that requires external amplification, converting the vibration of its strings into electrical signals which are reproduced as sound.

Bass: The bass guitar is a low-pitched electric or acoustic guitar, which typically has a long neck and typically four strings. (You can also find models with a greater number of strings).

Every child has different preferences and needs, but, as a rule, experts recommend that kids start playing using an acoustic guitar.

“A guitar is more than just a sound box… it is part of your soul.” -Manuel Velazquez

What is the best age for my child to start learning the guitar?

The best age for kids to start taking guitar lessons is around 6 to 7.
