free kids guitar  chord teaching resources
The main difference in lesson content between the early stages of teaching children to play guitar and the same stage for adults is that kids sometimes find stretching their fingers across the entire width of the guitar neck a bit too challenging in the early stages. To solve this problem guitar teachers introduce their younger students to "reduced" (one finger) versions of three of the eight chords that any beginner should learn first
Above you can see some of our guitar chord shapes especially prepared for younger guitar students and below you will see a link that will allow you to print the poster for the C chord

encourage guitar students to practice with this log

Encourage your students to practice more

A common situation that I find myself in is that sometimes my students are obsessed with guitars to the extent that they can seem more like collectors than players. They can spend a whole lot of hard earned money convinced that by buying more and better guitars they somehow become a better player. They often spend hours on the internet becoming becoming ever more knowledgable about guitars but in many cases that does not seem to translate into a huge improvement to their playing. This sheet is a fun and satisfying way way of getting them to play more and to play better by not allowing themselves to buy a new guitar until they have "earned" it.

All they need to do is decide upon a budget and pay themselves an hourly rate to practice. When they have practiced enough then they can "allow" themselves to buy the new guitar. The "rate of pay" can be varied in accordance with their personal circumstances and the price of the new guitar that they wish to own but fifty hours or real practice should see an improvement in the player who then feels good about awarding themselves a $500.00 guitar as the reward for the progress that they just made. It seems a bit silly but in some cases it has proved to be VERY effective.

For some students this can make all of the difference. Suddenly they have a clearly defined goal with a reward at the end of it. All thet you need to do is to remind them what practice is.

Practice is not.....

Noodling around on the guitar and going through things they can already play (usually riffs, the beginning bits of solos and introductions)

Practice is.....

The study and repeat of scales and arpeggios and extending a students repertoire of techniques songs and styles. In short it is working on things that they can't yet do. Learning a new song (all of the way through- with an ending, not just the intro). Applying themselves to music theory or working on the basics of a new style (eg Jazz, Country, Funk, Folk, Fingerpicking, Blues etc) with which they are unfamiliar. Practice is that which makes them a better guitar player and not just something to distract them till its time to log on to the internet in order to argue with some other plonker about the best kind of pickup magnets
