But keeping a child interested inpracticing can be a challenge. Among all the instruments that a child can learn how to play theclassical guitar is among the best. Here are the reasons.The classical guitar takes advantage of the allure of the rock star. Every child is familiar with popmusic and every child who is interested in playing an instrument would probably take very quicklyto playing the guitar. Any child would be quick to brag to his or her friends that he is learning toplay the guitar. It is a highly romanticized instrument and this is what I call the allure of the RockStar. You can take advantage of this attraction to popular music by teaching a child to playclassical guitar.Playing classical guitar is a bit different than playing pop and rock but there are some distinctadvantages to classical guitar. The child will learn the fundamentals of sound music theory and willfocus on learning how to read sheet music. Along the way the child will learn the basics ofclassical music.But he or she will not lose interest in playing because while the classical guitar is a goodinstrument for learning theory, history, ability, and classical music, it is also an instrument thatoffers an incredible range of pieces to play in many genres. With the ability to play classical guitarcomes the ability to play in every other genre that the guitar is played in. He or she will be able toplay pop, rock, easy listening, country, jazz, blues, or any other type of music where a guitar isused. It is because of this wide variety of music that will be available to the student that he or shewill be much more prone to continue practicing and continue playing. And this is another greatreason why the classical guitar will bring a lifetime of enjoyment and enrichment. As the childgrows and his musical tastes change the guitar can be right there through all the changes.There are also some very pragmatic reasons for the classical guitarPortability: The classical guitar is something that can be carried to and from lessons and to andfrom a friends house. Classical Guitars are also made in half size and three quarter size whichgives young children the ability to play on an instrument more suited for their small hands.Expense: professional guitars can be very expensive and run into the thousands of dollars but withthe popularity of the guitar as an instrument there is a tremendous selection of inexpensive yetwell made guitars. An adequate first guitar can usually be found in the fifty to a hundred dollarrange.
Quiet Instrument: the classical guitar is an instrument that can be played in a room without themusic being intrusive to other people in the house.What if there is no classical guitar instructor in your town or city?Upon the surface or during an initial look this may be true; there may be no official classical guitarinstructors available to you but there is no doubt a large list of teachers who teach rock guitar. Andone thing about the genre of rock and rock guitarists is that they have a reverence for classicalguitarists because classical guitarists are renowned for their technical ability -classical guitaristsare simply great guitarists and any rock guitarist can probably name his favorite classicalguitarists.To overcome the lack of an official classical guitar instructor you can simply ask rock guitarinstructors if they are willing to take on a child that wants to learn classical guitar. Many of themwill jump at the chance because it will also broaden their horizons and musical ability.But there is one question you should ask any potential rock guitar instructor. Make sure that he orshe can read sheet music reasonably well. This is of paramount importance for learning classicalguitar. Some instructors may not fit this requirement because rock guitarists often learn their craftthrough ear training and using tablature, which is a notation form of music. This type of instructorwouldnt be suitable for a student of classical guitar.The classical guitar sometimes has the reputation of being a bit of a high-class instrument. But it isan instrument that crosses all genres of music and if you are considering the classical guitar foryour child I applaud your decision. It is an instrument that can bring him or her a lifetime of musicalenrichment and enjoyment.Will Kalif has been playing classical guitar for over twenty years.
