We designed Rock Dojo’s online guitar lessons for kids to help children (aged 6-12) learn the guitar so well they can play and write their songs when they get a Black Belt in rock! Like in a martial arts dojo, students start at the white belt level and progress to higher levels, learning new skills and techniques.
