Guitar Lessons for Kids & Early Learners
Blue Guitar Studio also offers guitar lessons for kids, as well as ukulele lessons for children. Our children’s guitar instructors focus on the basic building blocks of playing guitar while making the lesson fun and engaging with recognizable songs, games, and activities.
Ukulele Lessons for Kids
For early learners who are not quite ready to learn guitar, we offer ukulele lessons, where young students can start strumming and getting a feel for playing an instrument. Our lessons for early learners are structured so that there are several different activities throughout the lesson to keep kids engaged and excited about learning.
We Want Music to be Fun!
Our priority is to help children develop a love of music and learning, and to provide them with learning materials that they are excited about. We do this by tailoring our lessons to each individual student, to ensure that we are meeting their needs and goals, and they are having so much fun they can’t wait to come back for the next lesson!
