Junior Guitar Course

Junior Guitar Course

(For 7- to 11-year-olds)

Children between the ages of seven and eleven are at the developmental stage where their logic and creative intelligence begin to flourish. As a result, they will enjoy physical and mental stimulation through reading and playing music. This course is the perfect solution to your child's need for self-expression in a fun and challenging way through music.

A Strong Foundation
As a student in the Junior Guitar Course, your child will be guided through a systematic and progressive syllabus developed by the Yamaha Music Foundation, Japan. Our proven curriculum will help your child learn the correct techniques in the playing of the guitar, and will train them to read music scores and charts the right way.

Performance Opportunities
To showcase the skills achieved, we encourage our students to participate in concerts and competitions. Through such activities, they become more self-confident and willing to share their love of music with family, friends and the public.

The Right Preparation
With the training and guidance our instructors provide, your child may want to attempt an examination. If so, our instructors will make sure they go into the examination confident and, most importantly, prepared.
