The Benefits Of Learning Music

Music & Development In Early Childhood

Providing children with quality development tools, at an early age, will prepare them to thrive in a multitude of environments.

Giving them the wrong tools, or no tools at all, can result in academic and social insecurities.

Music study is one of the most powerful developmental tools. Music reading and playing stimulates the whole brain. Children who study music acquire much more than musical skills.

Learning to play an instrument, especially in the early years of life when the brain is open to teaching, has been proven to:

  • Increase Discipline & Motivation
  • Foster Confidence & Social Skills
  • Improve Creativity & Memory
  • Relieve Stress & Anxiety
  • Grant a Sense Of Achievement & Satisfaction
  • Contribute to Academic Success

Learning To Play The Guitar for Kids

The guitar continues to be one of the most popular music instruments for kids.

Learning to play the guitar will provide life-long opportunities. Your child will be able to:

  • Express his or her emotions in a constructive way
  • Have an enjoyable hobby for life
  • Play along with family, friends, at church or with a band
  • Have an impressive talent that builds confidence
  • Have an outlet for creativity
  • Have something meaningful to achieve, instead of being idle


The Gentle Guitar™ Original Method For Kids

The Gentle Guitar™ method is designed for children. It adapts to their individual level of development. A five year old can follow along just as easily as a twelve year old. Kids love the fun written activities, easy progressive exercises and musical games.

Most other guitar teachers focus on strumming popular songs. At Gentle Guitar™ we also teach music theory and notation. We care about giving your child the best possible musical foundation.

Our method is both fun and academic! The Gentle Guitar™ method, at its core, has the child’s development in mind.

The Gentle Guitar™ method is so effective that other guitar teachers purchase our books to teach kids all over the world!


“Gentle Guitar™ is going to revolutionise the guitar learning experience for children!” — Dylan Kay, Guitar teacher, New Zealand

Student Results From The Lessons…

Why Your Child Should Learn Music
With Gentle Guitar™


Professional and Fun

All lessons are taught privately one-on-one, with special emphasis on child nurturing and development.

These lessons are successful in boosting self-esteem, and are especially well suited to shy kids, those who need an understanding instructor, and those who show a particular interest in music and creativity.

We offer the highest quality of tuition you can find, and best valuemusic lessons for young kids.

Strong Musical Foundation

Music is fun, but ultimately the purpose of studying music literacy at a young age is to enhance brain development, while the brain is highly plastic.

Experts agree that by age five, most children have built the capacities that allow them to be ready for formal music lessons.

At this stage the goal is not to make great performers out of them, but to
introduce expression and creativity into their lives.

“I value Gentle Guitar as a component of our overall homeschool curriculum, not just something “extra-curricular.” — Amy B. (Aaron’s mom, Chicago, USA)

Convenience and Flexibility

Signing-up for a kids guitar lesson has never been easier! The Gentle Guitar program is taught to you and your child, one-on-one, via Skype.

You’ll be on time every time and you won’t have to beat traffic and use up valuable time travelling to and from lessons. Instead you’ll invest quality time bonding with your child over a rewarding educational experience

Real Progress and Results

Our proven method has been taught successfully since 2013. We’ve seen the
progress made by our students and are really proud of the results. You can see
for yourself! Check out the student performances and parent testimonials.


Skype Guitar Lessons For Kids
Here’s How It Works

  • You and your child meet with your teacher once a week, live via Skype (or FaceTime). The lessons are 30 minutes long.
  • You get a fun age-appropriate music workbook with exercises, songs and written activities.
  • The teacher guides you though the workbooks and lessons at a gentle pace that suits your child’s personality and learning ability.
  • You explore music theory, correct guitar playing technique, songwriting, how to play songs and chords, how to read standard music notations, and overall musicianship.
  • You are encouraged to do progressive daily guitar homework which only takes 10 – 15min to complete.
  • You get step-by-step instruction. Even if you don’t know ANYTHING about music, it’s easy to follow along and help your child learn.
  • The Gentle Guitar™ lessons are designed to boost confidence, build self-esteem and teach universal skills required for success in any discipline.
  • It’s a DEVELOPMENTAL program. It’s about using music as a TOOLBOX during those CRUCIAL YEARS in you child’s development when the brain is highly plastic between birth and about age 10.
  • The Gentle Guitar™ lessons are compatible with the major international classical and modern guitar examination boards.

Starting The Tuition

After the first free trial lesson, if you decide to sign up for the tuition, you and your teacher will pick a fixed weekly lesson time that suits you and your family. Once you agree on a time, you’ll receive a PayPal invoice. At Gentle Guitar you pre-pay for 4 lessons at a time. So if you need to stop lessons, there’s no long-term commitment.

The Cost of Weekly Lessons

The cost of tuition is between $25 to $35 per week depending on the tuition option you select. Your teacher will explain the available tuition options during your first free trial conference call.

You Will Need:

Suggested at least 3 Mbps.

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

A Skype (or FaceTime) account is necessary to be connected to the teacher.

All kids must be accompanied by a parent or adult during the first trial lesson. Kids under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult at every lesson and at all times during the instruction.

Families with kids ages 5 – 8 do NOT need a guitar. You and your child will clap rhythms and learn to read, trace, color and write music notes.
Families with kids ages 9 – 12  DO need access to a tuned guitar to try the first free lesson. Your child will learn how to read and write music, as well as get an introduction to playing the guitar.
