Parent questions and assignment clarification
Classes are designed for students to progress at their own pace. Students receive supplementary books during the year when they are ready to move ahead.
There really isn't a best age for kids to start guitar lessons, but most children under the age of 7 generally don't have the dexterity or patience needed to learn to play the guitar. With persistence and motivation, some kids have learned to play guitar at some impressively young ages, but it really comes down to is the individual attitude and maturity level of the student.
Students are encouraged to purchase their own guitar, especially as they reach higher skill levels. Liberty Music Academy does occasionally let kids borrow electric guitars for rehearsal, but for best results students are encouraged to have a guitar and amp at home for daily practice.
With steady practice, playing in a group, and weekly private guitar lessons, kids and adults can play with basic proficiency in as little as 6 months. Some students reach the level of advanced guitarists in as few as 3-5 years, but it does vary.
The bottom line is that it's not the songs you practice, but just that you or your kid spends time playing the guitar. To see the best results, our guitar teachers recommend that students spend at least 30 minutes practicing the guitar every day.
