Guitar Lessons FAQ’s

Guitar can actually be quite hard for very young children because of the coordination required as well as grip and finger strength.  You can potentially start a child as young as 6 years old, if they have the intrinsic motivation to play!  They will get past the initial struggle because they want it so badly.  At 8 years old, you can expect most children to feel more comfortable learning guitar.

As a general rule, ages 8 & under will need a ‘mini’ either ½ or ¾  size guitar.  Around 10 & up may need a full sized guitar. It really depends on the size of the child and their arm reach. Acoustic, Electric, Nylon and Bass Guitars are all available in either 3/4 or Full Size.  The best way to know for sure, is to ask the instructor! They will help you know the correct size and also send you recommendations of quality beginner instruments.

The simple answer is: Either… or Both.

Electric lends itself to lead guitar better because of the lighter strings that facilitate string bending and other techniques often used in solos.  The lighter strings can also be easier on a beginner’s fingers.  On the other hand, you’ll need more equipment at all times to use, such as an amplifier and cables. .

An acoustic guitar can be strung with lighter or ‘Silk & Steel’ strings to make playing easier on a beginner’s hands.  No Amp or cables necessary, so it’s easy and portable to bring with you anywhere and just start playing!

Nylon string guitars are also a popular choice for young beginners because the nylon strings are a bit easier on the fingers.

Eventually most guitarists will want to own at least one of each.

All students should have their own tuner, picks and a music stand.  Electric guitar/bass students will also need an amplifier and cable. A guitar stand is a great and inexpensive accessory that really pays off. You’ll be likely to play more often if it is easily accessible and not put away in a case, out of sight! A guitar case or gig bag is needed for transporting your guitar anywhere. Don’t skimp in this department, since it protects your instrument!

Other accessories such as a metronome, capo and method books will be discussed in your lessons and are dependent on your level and interests.
