Guitar 101 for Parents of New Guitarists

Kids with a guitar

Go to part 2 of the series: Encouraging Your Young Guitarist | Jump to part 3 of the series: Encouraging Your Teen Guitarist

Do you have a young child who just can't wait to start online guitar lessons this fall?  Students age five to seven need more parental involvement than most, especially at the beginning.  Learn these fundamentals so that you can help your child start off right.

To Read Or Not To Read

When to Embrace Written Music and When to Get Away from the Page

If you're wondering whether reading music is important to your (or your child's) guitar education, you'll quickly discover conflicting philosophies.  A classical guitarist may tell you that reading music is essential to understanding the guitar and communicating with other musicians.  A rock, blues, or folk guitarist may tell you that reading music is an unnecessary burden that distracts from musical expression.  They may even cite you a list of famous guitarists who can't read a note.

Encouraging Your Aspiring Young Professional

Part 1 – For Parents of Young Guitarists (ages five to nine)

Does your child light up when they hear their favorite song or see a new music video?  Do they love their guitar lessons and possess some degree of natural aptitude for music?  Is your child already talking about a career in music?
