About the Online Guitar Lessons for Kids

Welcome to the Rock Dojo’s FAQ page for online guitar lessons for kids. Here, we’ve gathered answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about our award-winning online guitar lessons system designed for children aged 6-12.

What is the Rock Dojo Belt System?

At Rock Dojo, we believe that achieving success on the guitar requires more than just learning to play a few songs. We’ve developed our unique belt system based on the martial arts belt-ranking system.

We designed the Rock Dojo belt system to provide students with a clear path for growth and development. As students progress through the various levels, they earn belts and new skills, which motivates them to keep practicing and learning.

The Rock Dojo belt system is a fun and rewarding way for students to learn and achieve their goals. So if your child is ready to become a black belt in rock, sign up for our online guitar lessons today!

Gear Recommendations

What Kind of Guitar Should I Buy for My Child?

When buying a guitar for your child, remember a few things. First, you’ll want to consider the size of the guitar. A full-sized guitar may be too large and cumbersome for a child, so you may want to look for a 3/4 or 1/2-sized guitar instead. You’ll also want to consider the quality of the guitar. While it may be tempting to go for the cheapest option, a high-quality guitar will be easier to play and ultimately be a better investment in the long run.

What Brands of Guitars Do You Recommend?

There are many great guitar brands out there that make guitars specifically designed for kids. Some of our top recommendations include the following:

These brands offer quality instruments that are the perfect size for kids. In addition, these brands provide guitars designed to help young players learn and grow on the guitar. Of course, many other great guitar brands are out there, so it’s worth researching to find the right guitar for your child.
