Lessons for kids

Music can help your child become a well-rounded individual, and playing guitar or bass is a fun way to learn music!

Music helps a child’s development because it uses a variety of skills: reasoning, reading, coordination, memory and manual dexterity. By playing guitar or bass, your child will learn the importance of practice and dedication. And they’ll enjoy the reward of being able to play songs for their family and friends.

Music isn’t taught in schools as much as it used to be, and guitar or bass lessons can help fill in the gap. I will teach your child how to read music and count rhythms, just like music teachers used to do in school. If your child wants to pursue music in high school, I can give them the foundation to be successful.

In addition to teaching lessons for over six years, I’ve worked with children as a day-care provider, sports coach and as a student-teacher. I have several references from parents of past and present students that I’m happy to provide to you.

You are welcome to sit in on your child’s lesson or you may relax in my living room, which is in earshot of the studio. At the end of each lesson, I’ll provide you with an update on your child’s progress.

If your child has demonstrated a fondness for music and the ability to focus for 30 to 45 minutes at a time, please contact me to discuss how I can help your child learn to play guitar.
