Music is the best friend we all need, there for us anytime we need. Any kind of mood you’re in, you’re sure to find the suitable song, but if you’re up for something uplifting, then choose guitar songs!
Guitars are specific instruments that don’t always make the first choice when it comes to introducing kids to music, with piano and violin making the being the preferred ones.
This is so not only with the ease of learning how to play them, but also with how they are designed, and since small children have small hands and chubbier fingers, they don’t go well with guitars until they are about eight years old. Thanks to the design of small guitar, this is no longer the limit.
With a thinner neck easier to grip, and three strings that are more spaced, this is the type of guitar allowing kids to play well even when they are younger, producing clean notes. Not only does it sound better, it’s also more encouraging, motivating them to keep on playing and master the skills of how to play quickly.
Versatile in colours, as well as in types, available as both acoustic and electric, the small guitar is great for parents who are beginners too, meaning guitar playing can be just the activity you need to have fun with your kids, and bond.
Remember, kids don’t like being pushed into liking something and you can make them like the instrument by being their example. Now that we’ve established age is no excuse to stop kids from learning how to play, let’s move on to the importance of having this hobby.
As mentioned, kids learn skills, and when they hear the sound they produce, they get motivated to play even more (small victories matter!), and better, which is exactly what makes guitar playing a lesson of discipline.
The more they practice, the more they are able to concentrate. This happens to be an essential life skill that has its way with achieving success, and where there’s discipline and success, there’s confidence.
They learn that making mistakes is nothing to be afraid of, and they get the knowledge for this by having fun. Thinking about it, it’s not just getting benefits for the time being, instead your kids would be getting lifelong benefits.
Guitar is also great with developing the ability to analyse, and it’s a skill that’s particularly helpful with school subjects, like maths, and sciences in general, as well as languages. Moreover, when they learn more chords, they grasp more information, which is useful with memory structure.
