Back to School - Choosing the Right Guitar for Your Child

Back to School - Choosing the Right Guitar for Your Child

So the summer holidays may only just feel like they have started but as parents our minds turn to the endless list of uniform, stationery, lunch boxes, bags and other equipment we need to provide and label before September rolls around!

If your child is learning or is hoping to learn to play the guitar next term, chances are they need their own guitar to take to lessons with them... but what type? what size? what other accessories do they need? On top of everything else you need to think about (whilst keeping the kids entertained for the remainder of the holidays) I'm sure this is something you have little time to research.

What Size Should I Buy?

There is no hard and fast rule about the right size guitar for a child but we have put together the following guideline based on age and height. Just remember how fast they grow!! So, if your child falls in between categories, we would suggest going for a slightly bigger one.

All of our ranges are categorised on our website according to age but it is worth double checking against the height guide to make sure you have the right size.
