Product Description:

Playing music together as a family sounds quite lovely, but what if you don't even play an instrument? Not a problem with this simple guitar book! This book is formatted with a child's lesson on the right hand page and a parent's guide on the left hand page. Think of it as a teacher's manual and student book all in one. The best part? This book assumes that you, the parent, have no prior musical knowledge only the ability to read and relay information. It also comes with handy teaching tips and practice suggestions so you can help your child develop good playing habits without even knowing them yourself. While you're at it, you might as well learn alongside your child!

In terms of structure, this series takes a slightly different approach than other Alfred books, starting with chords and moving into notes on the strings rather than the opposite. All in all, the amount of information learned appears to be the same at each book level. Included is a CD to play along with for extra practice. 80-90 softcover pages. Laura

Publisher Description:

Alfred's Teach Your Child to Play Guitar is designed for parents who want to share the gift of music with their children before they begin formal study with a professional teacher. It is based on Alfred's Kid's Guitar Course, a fun method that teaches students to play pieces on the guitar right away. Families who are part of the homeschool movement especially will find the book useful.

Using the same music and fundamentals included in the original edition, an easy and user-friendly Parent Guide precedes each student page to aid with teaching the music to the child. The guide suggests steps for introducing the concept or page to the student, follow-up practice suggestions, and suggestions for reviewing the page in subsequent lessons.

The enclosed CD contains a recording of every piece in the book. Listening or playing along with the recording is fun, but more importantly, it reinforces musical concepts such as rhythm, dynamics, and phrasing. Using this book and CD, any parent can teach their child guitar basics effectively.

I chose Alfred's because I like that the student gets started playing chords sooner than some of the other publishers.
