At Kids Guitar Academy we teach 7 to 12 year old kids to play their favorite rock and pop songs on the guitar and make learning to play so easy and fun that kids NEVER want to quit. Unlike traditional methods that force students to learn nursery rhyme songs and boring exercises, at Kids Guitar Academy we take kid's favorite songs and simplify them to fit their current skill level.
Our teaching method is specifically geared towards kids in the 7-12 year old age group. Other teaching methods either over challenge the student and cause them to become frustrated or bore the student and cause them to want to quit.
We focus on providing the perfect balance of structure and fun by teaching kids songs that they can have fun with and connect to emotionally, while still sneaking in all of the fundamentals that they will need to become well rounded musicians.

Guitar Lessons for 7 - 12 Years Old Kids
At kids guitar academy we teach 7-12 year old students (some as young as 6) to play their favorite rock and pop songs on guitar and make learning to play so easy and fun that kids never want to quit.
We do this by simplifying their favorite songs down to something that they can play NOW, rather than making them wait 2 years to playing anything that sounds like real music.
Its not the INSTRUMENT, its the SONG.
What this means is that kids have to have an emotional connection to the music they play and to KNOW and like the songs.
The reason why many kids lose interest when they try instruments like piano, violin, flute or saxophone, is that the songs they are made to play (twinkle, twinkle etc.) are not songs they listen to.
We focus on making the entire guitar learning process a 100% fun and positive experience.
We still provide structure to our students, but we “hide the vitamins in the ice cream”… meaning that the structure doesn’t feel restrictive or boring to our students.
Once the student is emotionally engaged and having a fun, positive experience we are able to increase the level of “challenge” without the student become discouraged and wanting to quit.
7-12 year old students have a very specific set of needs when it comes to learning guitar.
Teachers that don’t SPECIALIZE in this age group either OVERWHELM students because they try to make then learn the same way ad adult does… or they bore them to death because they assume that a young kid is only capable of playing 2 line nursery rhyme songs.
