Acoustic Guitar Lessons: 7+ years

Group lessons for children 7+ years learning acoustic guitar

Weekday afternoons with Mary or Patrick

Acoustic guitar lessons provide a great early instrument for younger children to learn, as the instrument itself is not difficult to master, enabling children to focus their attentions on learning and developing their skills in sight-reading musical notation, and mastering rhythm, pitch and intonation in their acoustic guitar lessons.

In term 1 and term 3 each year we accept brand new students into our Beginner Acoustic Guitar lessons; from here, students typically progress to learning in our continuing Acoustic Guitar groups, in consultation with the teacher. In the continuing groups, children work on mastering their instrument, postural technique, learning more advanced musical notation & sight reading, and playing as part of a ensemble.

After completing our Acoustic Guitar group tuition pathway, older children may wish to take private lessons on acoustic, electric or bass guitar. See our full program to view all the classes your child (and yourself!) might like to get involved with.

Music For Canberra believes strongly in the importance of performance in improving the self-confidence and musical ability of students of all ages, and acoustic guitar students who would like to are certainly encouraged to participate in our member concert events (but are under no pressure if they don’t wish to).

What do I need to bring to my Acoustic Guitar lessons?

Ahead of each term beginning, please ensure you are ready to start your acoustic guitar lessons with:

  • your acoustic guitar! (if you need advice on purchasing an instrument, please contact us or call one of Canberra’s local music stores such as Better Music)
  • a plastic display folder to store the music you teacher will hand out in class
  • a sharpened pencil (preferably with an eraser on top)
