BTS Guitar Lessons in Philly
Back to school guitar lessons with Philadelphia’s David Joel
For many states in the country, school is about to start up. In the south school is beginning in the coming weeks. For parents, that means it’s time to start planning the school year and getting off on the right foot. Organizing after-school care, having tutors on the ready, and getting your child enrolled in extracurricular activities are all things on parents’ minds right now. Making sure your child is ready for the year ahead is important to ensure the school year goes smoothly.
If you or your child aren’t sure what kinds of activities they want to participate in, luckily you still have some time to decide. One great activity your child can do outside of the school system is to take private music lessons. Maybe they are already part of the school’s music or band programs. But sadly many schools just don’t have such programs in their budget anymore.
While it’s sad to think your child may are not able to learn a musical instrument in their school, you can sign them up for private lessons and have them learn music elsewhere. If your child has a passion for music, it’s important to fuel this desire. Guitar lessons for school-aged children is a great way to learn an instrument while learning a lot of other life lessons as well.
More Than Just Music
Kids who take guitar lessons (or any music lessons) learn more than just playing an instrument. They learn about discipline, patience, failure, setting goals, and succeeding when they are determined and follow through with something. These are all life lessons they can take with them to other aspects of their life.
Learning to play the guitar is a great activity for kids of all ages. While it teaches important life lessons, it teaches your child to learn how important music is not just to their lives but to the world as well. We all need music in our lives and learning how to play an instrument is a great investment in your child’s future.
The guitar is a mobile instrument, meaning that is easy for your child to get around with it. It is easy to take it to lessons, move it around the house for practice purposes. Take it with you when visiting relatives and friends. It engages them and makes them proud when they have learned something new and want to show it off to their loved ones. The guitar is a major ego booster for sure!
