Like most of our students, Aaron has developed an amazing work ethic thanks to his mom who sits in on the lessons and assists Aaron during the homework practice. The lessons have been helping Aaron overcome his perfectionism and teaching him that mistakes are a part of learning. Now Aaron is not afraid to tackle bigger tasks and is no longer intimidated by mistakes.

I first discovered Gentle Guitar™ through Pinterest, as I was researching options of adding guitar instruction to our homeschool curriculum.

I appreciated that with Gentle Guitar™ we can have the lessons at home and at a time convenient for our family and homeschool routine. I love that Aaron’s lesson is in the morning as part of our homeschool day. I value Gentle Guitar™ as a component of our overall homeschool curriculum, not just something “extra-curricular”.

We decided to try the online lessons because the cost of Gentle Guitar™ over Skype was essentially the same as what a local instructor would charge, yet much more convenient!

Guitar has been a wonderful outlet for Aaron’s musical expression. He’s learning not just music theory and guitar skills, but he’s growing in creativity, discipline, and perseverance. As a mom, I appreciate that Gentle Guitar™ lives up to the name and is truly gentle! The pace is individualized for the student, our teacher’s demeanor is very warm and encouraging.

People are amazed when they find out Aaron attends lessons through Skype, but it’s such a wonderful way for him to learn. And because I sit with Aaron through the lesson, I’m actually learning right along with him! If a family intends to pursue guitar instruction, there’s no reason not to give Gentle Guitar™ a try.
