Course Overview

Guitar classes for kids are designed to introduce children to the fundamentals of playing the guitar in a fun and engaging way. The goal is to help them develop basic skills, a strong musical foundation, and a lifelong love for music.

Age Group

These classes are usually tailored for children between the ages of 6 to 12, although the age range can vary depending on the instructor's preferences.

Class Duration

Classes are often structured as weekly sessions, typically lasting around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the attention span and age of the child.

Group Size

Classes can be taught in group settings or as one-on-one lessons. Group classes can provide a social aspect where kids can learn from and interact with their peers, while individual lessons offer more personalized attention.


The curriculum for kids' guitar classes typically includes the following components: Basic Techniques: Children will learn the fundamental techniques of playing the guitar, including how to hold the guitar, strumming, fingerpicking, and basic chord formations.

Ear Training

Basic ear training exercises can help kids develop their ability to recognize and replicate melodies and chords by ear.

Kids will typically need their own guitar. It's recommended to start with a child-sized guitar that's appropriate for their age and size. They might also need a guitar tuner, a notebook for jotting down notes, and possibly some supplementary materials provided by the instructor.
