Are you thinking about getting a musical instrument for your child but you are not sure which one to choose? Well, first of all it’s your child who should be choosing the instrument. But parents can of course explain to them the advantages of each instrument. In this post I would like to give you some arguments why a guitar is a great choice for kids. To do so, we are going to answer the question from a parent’s and a child’s perspective.
What was it that sparked my interest in travel guitars? I’m traveling on beach vacation in a couple weeks and I am facing a tough decision. Should I lug my massive full-sized guitar all the way across the ocean or just leave it at home and not have anything?
I decided I didn’t like either option. So I just went out and bought a new 3/4-size travel guitar.
That was only a week ago and there hasn’t been a moment where I’ve regretted purchasing the mini-guitar. Sure, it doesn’t have the same volume as a full-size guitar but it feels great in my hands and it’s going to travel nicely in the overhead bins.
I did quite a bit of research before buying this guitar (I know, it sounded like an impulse buy but it wasn’t). I thought it might be useful to share with you what I found when it comes to travel guitars. My goal was to find a travel guitar that didn’t suck.
It’s an age-old question from parents who want to introduce their children to the beautiful world of 6-string guitars: what age can kids begin learning guitar? Or restated, is there such thing as being “too young” for learning guitar?
