A dog, cat, and alligator help kids learn guitar.

Alfred's Kid's Guitar Course is a fun method that teaches kids to play songs on the guitar right away. Each lesson is explained in plain language that's easy to understand, with 3 irresistible guitar experts leading the way: a clever classical dog, one cool jazz cat, and a friendly alligator who loves the blues. They keep attention focused by pointing out what's important on each page and they help students learn by making music fun! Students hear how the music should sound by listening to the included enhanced CD, which contains additional tools when played on a PC, including a chord dictionary and guitar tuner.

Book 1 teaches basic music symbols, how to read chord frames and strum 3-string chords, and reading the notes in 1st position on the first three strings to play simple single-note melodies. Ages 5-9.

When kids are ready to move on, the optional Book 2 will help enhance their newly learned skills while building additional ones. (See accessory box on this page.)

A great way to introduce your kids to the joys of guitar playing. Order today!

Excellent for Beginners

By J.C.-w4t-L

from Suffolk, VA

Comments about Alfred Kid's Guitar Course 1 (Book/CD):

I loved teaching through this because it only focused on the first 3 strings: including reading notation and playing chords. Book 2 picks up with strings 4, 5, & 6 and builds complete 6-string chords.

Great book for kids-or anyone!

By BigDaddyD

from Litchfield Park, AZ

Comments about Alfred Kid's Guitar Course 1 (Book/CD):

This is a great book on how to play the guitar. It is simple, but goes through tuning, parts of the guitar, strumming, single notes and easy chords. It has a CD to use for tuning, instruction and playing the songs. It is oriented toward kids age 5 and above, with full color cartoons, little animals to help learn etc., but could be used by anyone who wants to start playing right away.
