Music & Arts: Guitar Review and &25 Gift Card Giveaway

Press Sample

I still remember back in 6th grade being asked by my mother if I was interested in playing a instrument for our school band.  She has always been active in her local church choir and was eager to pass along her love of music to me.  I ended up playing the trumpet from 6th grade to my senior year in high school and to this day am still grateful that I learned how to read music.  I hope to pass that love of music along to my children.  We recently had the opportunity to review a fantastic guitar from Music & Arts.

My five year old has always expressed an interest in learning how to play the guitar so we were sent the Alfred Kid’s Guitar Course Complete Starter Pack

My take:  First off let me start by saying this guitar is absolutely beautiful!

It is the perfect size for a younger child but makes such a quality sound compared to the toy guitars that we have purchased in the past.  The little details really set this guitar apart such as hree guitar picks, a tuner and the gorgeous details on the guitar itself :

I also love the fact that it comes with its own guitar case for protection against scratches or little prying fingers of his younger sister:

An added bonus is the Kid’s Guitar Course which is a great way for my son to learn how to play the guitar.  It comes with a book with easy instructions with tons of pictures where he can learn simple songs:

There is also CDs and a DVD for further learning if your child is more a auditory learner this will help.  I can’t wait until he learns how to play his first song!!
