At Winnipeg Guitar Lessons, kids get a quality music education. While other lesson providers start kids off with ‘chording’ and promise to teach them their favorite songs, we believe it makes more sense to learn how to play one note at a time (via music reading) before launching into playing 4, 5 or 6 notes via chord playing.
As well, kids under a certain age don’t have a favorite song in the guitar or popular music sense. At the same time, teens might have favorite songs, but to play them on the guitar (chords, riffs and solos) as an entry point is usually a disaster. It is too hard and frustrating to play at that high a level at the beginning.
The best way is to learn how to read single notes, the associated rhythm values and then move onto chords. To be a proficient guitarist you do not need to be an excellent sight reader but the skills learned through the basics last a lifetime.
The guitar makes an excellent instrument for the younger and smaller student because (unlike piano) they come in different sizes.
You can get guitars in full, 3/4 and 1/2 sizes.
