Guitars come in all shapes and sizes and it can be quite bewildering to someone buying their first guitar. Don’t encourage spending too much. It’s worth remembering that they are almost certainly going to want to upgrade after a year anyway, by which time, they will have a far better idea of exactly which instrument suits them best,but also, don’t go for cheap guitars that are impossible to tune and difficult to play. The single most important criteria are: Is the guitar comfortable to hold? Is it easy to play notes and chords on? Consider half and three-quarter size guitars and try both steel and nylon string guitars.
Rather than a reverential one-step-at-a-time-let’s-learn-to-play-correctly approach, try to invite experimentation and freedom of expression from day one during your Auckland guitar lessons. For example, get them to lightly tap a rhythm on the sound box of the guitar. Get them to accompany you on ‘percussion guitar’. The best way to do this is to lightly tie a sock round the neck of the guitar to mute the strings, then let them experiment with their right hand playing different natural strumming patterns. Encourage them to vary dynamics, tempo and complexity of rhythm.

I don’t usually attempt to actually teach them to tune their guitars early on, but I make sure their guitar is well in tune for the Auckland guitar lesson and also check to see if there is someone at home who can help them keep it in tune. Learning to tune a guitar is actually quite tricky for kids. Ultimately of course, it’s very beneficial for them to learn to tune by ear but, initially it is far more important to make tuning easy. So cheat and get them a tuning machine that is simple to operate, then patiently help them use it.
