What if there was a way for your child to learn the guitar without handing over $1000s of dollars a year on Lessons? More importantly what if they wanted to practice and had a complete training system which was organised in such a way that inspired daily practice through rewards and gamification.
Parents spend a lot of time and money organising classes for their kids. Driving to and from guitar classes may just be a thing of the past as online zoom and skype classes seem to play a major role in education. With the COVID 19 virus having a major impact on how we structure our lives in and out of the classroom parents are looking for ways to entertain and educate their kids.
Kids Guitar Dojo is the perfect introduction into the world of guitar for young beginners. It’s ideal for teachers, parents or anyone looking for a simple method that is both fun and engaging.
Book 1 comes with a set of removable fretboard markers; “training wheels for the guitar” These colourful markers are simple road signs designed to catch the students attention and assist them with fretboard navigation. They wont damage the fretboard and easily fit on 1/4 size, 1/2 size and 3/4 size guitars. Students are encouraged to remove the markers as they become familiar with the fretboard.
Rather then focusing on learning how to read music from Day 1 ( like a lot of outdated methods) we break that process in half. In Book 1 of the KGD program we focus on reading rhythms which is the first half of the reading music process. This way rhythm comes first – an essential ingredient every musician needs.
Taking this path places more emphasis on co-ordinating the limbs and building motors skills first. Rhythm is a key ingredient when it comes to playing any musical instrument. Laying down a solid foundation early on is arguably the fastest path for the student to take. Students will have access to step by step video lessons which include animations to help solidify each chapter in
the book. We introduce backing tracks with drums and bass early on to make playing the simplest tunes fun and engaging. We also utilise gamification in the members area and award badges, points and certificates. This has proven to be a great motivator and helps drive the students daily practice. Time watching lessons is logged and quiz questions further their understanding.
