The benefits of guitar lessons
If you’re interested in teaching your child a musical instrument, the guitar is a great choice. In addition to being fun to play, it offers variety when it comes to playing styles, musical genres, and song choices. David Joel is the best guitar teacher you will find in the Northeast Philadelphia area.
Most teachers recommend beginning lessons at age six because kids have the fine motor skills necessary to strum and form chords with their fingers. They also start to develop a longer attention span at this age. Besides the obvious benefits of learning a musical instrument, your child will also learn a lot about themselves.
Guitar lessons teach discipline
Learning the guitar, and pretty much any musical instrument, is a lot of hard work. Learning to play the guitar is incredibly rewarding on a multitude of levels but the one many parents will appreciate is that it teaches your child time management and dedication. Just 20 minutes of practice a day can produce amazing results. Getting your child to do this can be difficult, but if they’re able to practice discipline, not only will your child have the potential to be a great guitar player, but they’ll learn the value of hard work and time management.
Most parents know the struggle when it comes to getting your kids to do any kind of practice at home. However, the more your child practices, the more their confidence will surge. Not just as a guitar player, but in all aspects of life. Once your little one has mastered the guitar, they may move on to a new instrument. Or maybe try a sport? No matter what they do, learning an instrument can boost confidence and help develop an open mind to try new things.
When a child first begins lessons, they’ll be learning the mechanics of the instrument itself, basic song structure, and the technical details of the kind of music created by the guitar. But once mastered, they’ll be confident enough to start experimenting with writing melodies, chord progressions, and songs. This is where the real fun begins. As you watch your young musician grow from a beginner to a more accomplished guitarist, they’ll naturally want to expand their repertoire as a player or even possibly as a songwriter, honing writing skills to form lyrics that accompany their music. The sky is the limit here.
Achieve greater academic performance
Learning guitar helps your child develop discipline and routine. This also will most likely influence the way your child handles other aspects of life, like school. Your child will notice the rewards that come with dedication to playing an instrument and carry that over to their schoolwork and other areas in their life. This sets the groundwork for their future.
