The Gentle Guitar™ Method

For kids from 5 to 12+ years of age

The Gentle Guitar™ method is designed for children. It adapts to the child’s individual level of development. A five year old can follow along just as easily as a twelve year old. Complex musical content is broken down into fun written activities, easy progressive exercises and musical games.

While most other guitar methods for kids focus on strumming popular songs, at Gentle Guitar™ we care about giving your child the best possible musical foundation. That’s why our method is both fun and academic. Our program is a great introduction to guitar that preps the student correctly for a more advanced classical guitar or pop guitar focus later on.

The Gentle Guitar™ method, at its core, has your child’s overall development in mind.

  • Kids learn to
  •  Read Music
  •  Write Music
  •  Write Their Own Songs
  •  Establish Good Playing Form
  •  Have Fun
  • Age-appropriate musical activities that stimulate the brain and build character

The Gentle Guitar™ method provides a truly comprehensive system of music learning for kids.

Lesson after lesson, your child will become a talented musician who can play, read and understand music.

The method was created back in 2013, originally for use in various settings, including one-to-one, groups and classroom lessons. Since 2015 it has been optimised for online tuition and is now taught 100% on Skype (or FaceTime) to students all around the world.


Book a Free Trial Lesson

Here’s How It Works

The first thing you can do is book a free no obligation trial lesson. If you’ve never tried learning online with a live teacher before, you’re in for a treat! Experience it first-hand to make sure that this format works for you. Our students tell us that it’s the best thing they’ve done because now they feel like they get a professional and specialized lesson without ever having to leave home. It’s convenient and it saves travel time and money.

  1. First you will book a free trial lesson and receive a free kids activity PDF workbook which you can then print out and have handy with some color pencils.
  2. You’ll pick a time that suits you to meet with a friendly and experienced teacher. You will connect on Skype, (or faceTime) right in the comfort of your home.
  3. Your teacher will ask you about your goals and will take the time to get to know your child.
  4. After establishing a connection with your child, the teacher will encourage you and your child to participate in the lesson by going through simple exercises in the fun PDF activity workbook.
  5. Kids love the workbook because it helps break the ice and gets them to engage with music by tracing, writing, counting and clapping.
  6. Kids between ages 5 and 8 don’t need a guitar during the lesson. There will be plenty to do getting to know the A, B, C’s of music.
  7. Older kids ages 9+ do need a guitar at the trial lesson because they will be shown simple guitar exercises and they will need an instrument to follow along. (See how to choose the right guitar for a child).
  8. As a parent you’ll get to participate in the lesson and experience our efficient lesson format. Our method is a very homeschool-friendly curriculum that encourages parental participation.
  9. You’ll experience the warmth and professionalism of your teacher, and ask any questions you have about online tuition and in general about guitar lessons for kids. Our teachers work exclusively with kids and have years of experience helping kids learn guitar the right way from the start.
  10. When you will see how relaxed and engaged your child feels during the lesson, then you can take your time to decide as a family whether the Skype lesson format with Gentle Guitar is the right fit for you.

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 for some reason you need to stop lessons, there’s no contract or commitment. You can stop anytime. The cost of ongoing tuition varies between $25 and $30 per week depending on the tuition option you select. Your teacher will explain everything during your first free trial lesson.
