Young Guitar Beginners ages 6-9?

The beginning stages of learning the guitar are challenging, especially coordination for smaller hands. Young aspiring guitarists are guaranteed a fun, effective, encouraging beginning in our unique Guitar Teams.

For example, research over many years shows students who begin in our Team classes have a better retention rate, exhibiting ‘grit’ in the initial learning stages. As a result, these young students are most likely to progress, with minimal frustration, staying united with their guitar for years to come.  In conclusion, Guitar Teams are the best choice for your 6-9 year old aspiring guitarist – hands down! Class times for Team Classes are limited, so secure your spot in these special classes today!

All of our guitar, bass, and ukulele teachers are also active performing musicians

Our guitar teachers have university music degrees, In addition to being great musicians. They know the proper theory and technique, no matter if a student is interested in classical guitar or metal, learning pop/funk bass lines, or strumming a favorite folk tune on their ukulele. Learn how to jam with teachers and other students, or perform a solo in one of our recitals. We have the teachers to help you, no matter what type of guitar, ukulele or bass lessons you are interested in.

What is the right age to start guitar lessons?

Typically a student would be 8 before starting guitar lessons. This is a result of smaller hand size and developing fine motor / coordination skills. Therefore, best practice suggests that students ages 6-8 begin with a junior sized guitar or ukulele. We recommend registering for Guitar Team first, or Kids’ Ukulele Band here at Myriad to get a great beginning, with solid foundations. Additionally, consistent home practice is the other magical component to doing well with guitar, bass, or ukulele lessons.

Our motivating systems are unique

We teach foundations, and then show our students how to develop rock/blues riffs, classical technique, or song-writing skills, depending on what they are interested in. In addition, students at our school earn medals as they progress through our well-designed curriculum. In conclusion, we have been refining our curriculum over the past 9 years, making it better and more relevant to our students’ goals every year!
