I am happy to help your child become a well-rounded individual. Music is very important to a child’s development because it uses a wide variety of skills. Playing guitar will help improve your child’s reasoning skills, reading skills, coordination, manual dexterity and memory. By playing guitar, your child will learn the importance of practice and dedication. And here’s the best thing about it: most children think playing music is fun! They won’t even know that they are learning all of these wonderful things!

As you probably realize, music isn’t taught much at elementary and middle schools anymore so it is up to you to make sure your child is exposed to music education. I will teach your child how to read music and count rhythms, just like teachers used to do in school. If your child wants to pursue music in high school, I can give them the foundation that he or she needs to study music in high school.

You are probably wondering about my experience with children. I have worked with children as a day-care provider and as a student-teacher. I have several references from the 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.
