Guitar Lessons for Kids

Learning to Play Guitar at Alien Guitar Secrets

At Alien Guitar Secrets, we believe that learning a musical instrument like the guitar can aid in a child’s development in ways that we are only just beginning figuring out.

If you do a google search about why learning a musical instrument is important to a child’s development, you will literally come across thousands of studies that have been done over recent years that prove learning a musical instrument like the guitar can help your child’s development in a number of key areas such as:

  • Improves Listening Skills

Learning to play an instrument requires children to listen carefully to an array of different things. They need to listen for rhythm, pitch and speed. This concentration will improve their listening skills both in music and in life.
  • Increases memory skills

Learning an instrument teaches a child how to create, store and retrieve memories more effectively. 

  • Teaches Perseverance and Creates a Sense of Achievement

Learning to play an instrument takes a lot of time, patience and practice. During a guitar lesson, a teacher will set short term and long-term goals. As the child reaches their goals, they will feel a sense of achievement and pride. 

  • Improves Coordination

Playing an instrument requires the brain to work at advanced speeds. Those who learn to play an instrument have improved hand eye coordination over those who do not. 

  • Improves Maths Skills

Learning to play the guitar may seem just like a creative act, however, there are many parallels to mathematics. Music and maths are highly intertwined. By understanding the value of a beat, the patterns in rhythms and the structures scales and chords, children are learning how to divide, multiply, create fractions and recognise patterns and how to organise them. 

  • Learning the Guitar Strengthens Self-confidence

A child learning to play an instrument like the guitar, will continually overcome small hurdles placed in front of them. With each new skill learned in their progress, they remove a hurdle from their path, getting better at problem solving. This strengthens their self-confidence and makes them stronger mentally, and therefore more resilient to the pressures of life, even in non-musical situations.

Guitar lessons for kids at Alien Guitar Secrets start at 9 years of age and are designed around three key areas. They are:

  • To teach patience and concentration
  • To improve hand eye coordination and
  • To nurture creative self-expression.
