Most Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What kind of guitar should my child have?
A. If you haven't already bought a guitar and are looking for one a half
sized nylon string acoustic guitar is great for children 3-8yrs old. The
nylon strings (as opposed to steel strings) will feel better on their
fingers making it easier for the kids to play longer. There are some
good ones online (you can google
Children's Half Sized Nylon String
guitar) and at some area music stores

Q. My child really enjoys the game “Guitar Hero”. Does that mean he or
she should have guitar lessons?
A. Guitar Hero is a fun video game but has very little to do with actually
playing a guitar! The guitar is a musical instrument. It takes dedication
and hours of practice to play the songs featured on "Guitar Hero". That
does not mean that you can’t become a really good guitar player and
still enjoy “Guitar Hero”, “Super Mario” or any other video game but the
two have very little to do with each other.

Q. I see that the session has already started. Can I still join mid session?
A. Yes, as long as there is room in the class. Individual lessons can
start at any time.

Q. Can I take classes with my child?
A. Yes!! Moms and Dads, dust off that guitar you got as a present years
ago, slap on some strings (I can help with the strings) and learn how to
play with your child!! We have parents take classes with their children
all the time and it works great. The parents have a better sense of what
the kids are working on and practicing at home together leads to
playing together.

Q. How much should my child practice?
A. 5-10 minutes a night either strumming along to a Cd or going over
what we do in class is fine. 8yrs and older 20-30 minutes a night is fine!
Remember, if they want to play they'll do more on their own.
I'd rather have them play 5-10minutes each night than play an hour the
night before class.

18 months ago when my
daughter turned
six, we started taking guitar
lessons together with Bill.  I
had no background in music,
so we were both starting
from scratch. We have
learned to read music and
play notes and chords. We
started with Twinkle Twinkle
and now we're dabbling in
Taylor Swift.  We work on
duets together as well as
working at our own pace. My
daughter has advanced more
quickly than I. Taking lessons
together has been really
special. We learn about
guitar, music theory and
each other.
Laura and Quinn
Colleen, a mother of
two from Wilmington,
DE, knew she had
found the right activity
for her 5-year old son
Shane, when he asked
continuously about his
next guitar class. “He
would repeat over and
over, ‘I can’t wait to go
to guitar,’” she reports.
Although people
advised her that her
son was too young to
learn guitar, lessons at
We Kids Rock kept him
engaged and
enthusiastic.
