According to Modern Day Moms, guitar lessons offer numerous benefits. Children who learn to play the guitar enjoy a better memory, improved creativity, discipline, increased concentration and more confidence than their peers.

Guitar is also a ton of fun. You’ll be gifting your child with a lifelong pathway for creative expression he or she will enjoy for many years to come.

Here in Fort Worth you have a lot of options to choose from. You could get an in-home instructor, you could take your child to numerous guitar stores in the area, or you could choose a musical education at a school like Creative Soul.

Music Schools vs. Other Options

First, let’s talk about the most common option—taking your child to a guitar store.

Usually, the lessons provided at guitar stores are geared towards adults. There is a world of difference between teaching adults and teaching children. The quality of the instruction varies from store to store as well. Finally, you can’t be sure that any given music store instructor has been cleared to work with children.

If you bring a guitar instructor into your home, or meet with a guitar instructor in his or her own home, you’re taking on the burden of background checks and drug tests. You’re stuck having to evaluate the qualifications of your chosen instructor as well. And you must work around the fact that a single instructor is human just like the rest of us. There may be weeks he or she can’t teach for a whole host of personal reasons.

When you come to a music school like Creative Soul, however, you eliminate most of these problems. Our instructors have already been interviewed, background checked, and chosen for their musical and instructional acumen. Each is passionate about working with children. They’ve been verified as trustworthy people who will create a safe environment for your child.

In addition, if one of our instructors gets sick there are numerous other options to take their place. Thus, your child gets the kind of consistency that builds proficiency.
