1I’m not a guitar teacher.  Can I really teach it?  

Absolutely.  Teach Your Kids Guitar (TYKG) is a learning method that enables any parent to teach a child guitar – even a parent who has no previous musical experience.  It’s designed to be understood on a gradual basis and in a way that parallels your child’s own musical development.  Even if you’ve never picked up a guitar before, you can have the knowledge and resources to teach with our approach.

2.  At what age can my child begin to learn guitar with the TYKG method?

TYKG is a flexible learning approach that can work well for kids of all ages.  In general, the minimum age for learning guitar is around 5 and up.  It’s usually around this time that a child’s hands become large enough to handle the guitar and play notes.

3.  My child already has guitar experience.  Can he or she benefit from TYKG?

Yes.  Many kids who play guitar have learned songs, but lack proper rhythm skills to play music with perfect timing.  With TYKG, students have the opportunity to improve rhythm skills in the best way possible – practicing right along with musical play-along tracks. In addition, singing, sight reading and other things can be refined. With TYKG, guitar skills can always be refined with our extensive collection of kid-friendly songs!

4.  Why do I need to create a user account at checkout?

Whether you buy the TYKG hard copy kit, or access to Digital Download, you will receive full access to our website, video tutorials, instructional materials, music sheets, etc..   The user account you create will provide unlimited access to all TYKG digital products.

5.  Does the digital download version include the full curriculum?

Yes.  The Digital Download includes all of the learning components, sheet music, play along tracks and instructional resources that come with he hard copy version.  The main difference is that the instructional books will be in PDF form and will be downloaded (along with play along tracks and other resources) from our website.

6.  I've purchased the Digital Download version.  Where can I find the download files?

All digital download files can be found in the "Members Area" which will be automatically "unlocked" after a customer purchases either the digital download version, or the hard copy version.  

Since, in total, there are literally hundreds of digital files, the Members Area provides a well organized area that supports easy access and download of all instructional documents as well as all MP3 and PDF files applicable to each song.
