When you Google “kids sized guitar” there are so many options to choose from. We’ve found that one of the most decently priced guitar and appropriately sized is the Yamaha 1/2 sized guitar. It fits kids from 5-13 (we’ve found) and provides a warm consistent sound that makes learning to use a guitar for the first time not seem daunting. Check it out here.

Guitar Straps are one of the things that make learning to handle a guitar much easier. One day your child may be able to do without, but we’ve found that the support of a guitar strap lets kids focus on making music without worry. Our favorite at Atlanta Music Education os the Hola! Music brand.

Guitar picks are one thing you will lose, take our word for it. We like the Fender guitar picks because they have different weights of guitar picks, which makes finding a suitable pick much easier for kids! Go ahead and stock up.

Guitar tuners are a necessity, especially for beginners players. Tuners not only help you just tune your guitar, they enable your child to start listening and training their ears to recognize when instruments are in and out of tune as a bonus. Our favorite tuner is the Snark Clip-On Tuner for Guitar.

Capos are a necessary tool as your child advances through their guitar curriculum. Please discuss with your teacher when your child can add a capo to their materials for their lessons. We love the GUITARX capo but how easy it is to use.
