A Gentle Guitar™ specialist music teacher will work with you and your child on a Skype video call.

What You’ll Need


You don’t need a fast internet connection to have a Skype video call. Suggested at least 3 Mbps.


Any device such as a laptop, tablet, or smartphone meets these requirements.



A Skype account is necessary to be connected to the teacher. The lesson is also possible via FaceTime or Facebook.

If your child is under 12, then you and your child must participate in the lessons together and you’ll be asked to assist your child during the instruction.


Families with kids ages 5 to 8 do NOT need a guitar to try the first free lesson. The first lesson is designed as an introduction to music. You’ll get a fun music theory activity booklet that you’ll have to print out and have handy during the lesson. You and your child will clap rhythms and learn to read, trace, color and write music notes.

Families with kids and teens ages 9 to 16+, and adults do need access to a tuned guitar to try the first free lesson.
