Guitar for Kids is a fun, easy course that teaches children to play guitar faster than ever before. Popular songs such as “Yellow Submarine,” “Hokey Pokey,” “I'm a Believer,” “Surfin' U.S.A.,” “This Land Is Your Land” and “Hound Dog” keep students motivated, and the clean, simple page layouts ensure their attention remains focused on one concept at a time.
The method is equally suitable for students using electric or acoustic guitars. It can be used in combination with a guitar teacher or parents, even if they've never had any musical training themselves.
The accompanying online audio contains more than 30 tracks for demonstration and play-along and is accessed using the unique code printed inside each book. No tablature included.
