Purchasing A Guitar FAQ

What sort of guitar should you buy??? The guitars listed below are what we recommend to our students. They are brands and instruments we believe facilitate students with their learning, are well built and require the least amount of maintenance.

Guitars for Young Children

Young children are advised to purchase nylon string guitars. Different sizes are available ranging from 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4.

Acoustic Guitars

Most students wish to learn popular and rock music. For this we recommend steel string acoustic guitars as these are the instruments most commonly played by these artists.
