Frequently Asked Questions

Get Started

What Age Should My Child Start Guitar Lessons?

The minimum age we recommend a student start ukulele lessons is 4 years old. For younger students, we recommend an intro to the music program. Starting age will largely depend on the student, some may need to wait longer than others depending on factors such as fine motor skills, attention span, and overall interest in music.
