Hi all, it’s Debbie Leigh Driver here, owner and creator of Fretboard Warriors Guitar School for kids. I have been teaching kids for over a decade and would love to share the quick guide to the ‘7 Top Benefits for children learning the guitar’!
1. Improves a Child’s Memory & Sharpens Concentration
A government-commissioned study has found that learning to play the guitar at school improves a child’s behaviour, memory and intelligence. Full Article here
2. Develops Your Child’s Creativity
Creating your own music through improvisation or song-writing makes great use of your child’s imagination. It's so much fun and incredibly rewarding to create your own melodies and self-expression.
3. Develops Discipline = Success!
With determination comes success and the development of discipline, which can then also be useful to other areas of your life.
“Through discipline comes freedom” - Aristotle (love, love, LOVE this quote!!)
4. Develops Social Skills & Teamwork
Working and playing with other young musicians teaches children to appreciate the value of teamwork.
5. Improves Your Maths
Research suggests that musicians process music in the same cortical regions that teenagers process maths.
6. Increases Your Confidence & Self-Esteem
It's easy to set small goals in music, finishing a piece or just playing through to the end of a line of music, which when accomplished will give your child a great sense of success and build their confidence for performing music in front of an audience!
7. Playing The Guitar Is Fun!
Mixing all of these benefits into something that you want to do because it's fun and makes you feel great! You’ll never know, you could have the next Ed Sheeran or Jimi Hendrix at home!
