My son started learning how to play the guitar about a year ago. He is using Alfred’s Kid’s Guitar CourseDVD lessons. Last school year I had him practice 5 minutes per day. 5 minutes isn’t much, but it helped him get into the habit of practicing. This year he is practicing 15 minutes per school day. We are getting closer to the end of the first Alfred’s Kid’s Guitar Course. Basically, once a week he has a “lesson” where he plays along with the DVD for me and I give him feedback about his playing. I then determine what songs he should practice the next week. I usually have him continue to practice a song until he can play it with ease. My little girl enjoys playing along with him.
