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; AKA “training wheels for the guitar” These colourful markers are simple road signs designed to catch the students attention and assist them with fretboard navigation.

Time watching lessons is logged and quiz questions further their understanding.
