Guitar Kids Individual April

Class Teacher: Nikhil Srivastava

Class Level: Beginner


Guitar is one of the most interesting and versatile instrument ever created. I truly believe that because it can be used to perform as a lead, can be used in a band, can be used as an accompaniment, multiple gnres can be played on the instrument from basic Happy birthday to western pop, western classical to hindustani ragas or carnatic music. Apart from the above, even the basic knowledge of the instrument sometimes is enough to create music!!!

My classes are specifically designed for kids for them to start enjoying the instrument and play some simple stuff in a good way. Kids progress gradually through some exercises that helps them to develop dexterity in their fingers. Same exercises later result in them ending up playing songs, where all the magic happens!!! 

Once kids have finished minimum 1 year of learning with me, we can look at preparing for guitar exams like London College of Music, MTB, Trinity and Rockschool
