I used this book for about 5 years in my own teaching and then I decided that it was not a good method for children. The approach that this book uses is much too difficult for young children. For example the first song is called "Three Blind Mice" and its purpose is to teach the child how to play a C Major chord. I haven't had much student success at all with teaching chords to young beginners. It's almost physically impossible to for a child to a C Major chord in their first lesson. The interesting thing is that this book proclaims that it is the easiest method for children to learn the guitar. The approach of learning the guitar by playing chords may be appropriate for adults and teenagers but not for young children. So what does a parent or music teacher do when their child/student can't play the first song in the "easiest guitar method for children?" This question motivated me to create my own book called "Kasey's Guitar Jams for Kids." I have found that it is a much more engaging and fun way for children to play the guitar.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
