Just like with developing an ear and ability for other languages, the earlier you start your child's musical education the better! Singing to your babies, taking your toddlers to shake maracas and dance around at singalongs, and introducing your preschooler to their first instrument!
Choosing that right first instrument can be a difficult decision, but I'm thrilled to introduce you today to one amazing option: the Loog Mini Guitar! We were provided one for review as part of my $600 value jackpot giveaway (enter to win here!!), but all thoughts and opinions are my own and completely unbiased.
The Loog Mini Guitar is not just a kid's sized guitar or ukulele. It actually utilizes just the 3 top strings from a regular guitar, making it simpler for children to learn just the top half of all of the essential chords. What they learn will stay with them as they transition to a regular 6-string guitar in a few years. Brilliant!
What's more? The free Loog Guitar app makes it FUN!! Your child will create a character, tune their guitar, learn chords (with the help of YouTube tutorials built into the app), and unlock great songs to learn by artists such as Bruno Mars, Tom Petty, and Taylor Swift! With the help of this app, your child will be rocking it out on their mini guitar in no time! Be sure to watch my short YouTube video to see my 5 year old using the app to tune the guitar and work on his chords!
Now, I'm not going to lie to you. For my 5 year old, it was anything but easy. That said, he definitely had fun. Obviously some things in life, such as learning to play an instrument, take time and effort! I hope to spending a bit of one-on-one time together with the app and the guitar will help him get the hang of it and have fun! Check him out in action here:
You can buy a Loog Mini Guitar, good for ages 3+, on their website here, and also find great guitars for older kids, and lots of accessories such as bags, stands, and more! You can also find Loog Mini Guitar on Amazon (affiliate link).
