WHY? With little effort they can produce a pleasing T O N E (accomplishment). The Guitar is a C O M P L E T E Right & Left brain activity (strong analytic abilities). It allows your child to participate in sports, band, choir, languages, etc., in addition to learning the guitar, and provides the opportunity for S O C I A L activity (fun), while providing a P O S I T I V E M U S I C AL E X P E R I E N C E (enjoyment) !
A conversation regarding community is many times based on common interests, sports, hobbies, education, and of course how it involves children. When it comes to children we try to sense what, how, and when to begin helping them to learn, and we note the importance of learning.
KinderGuitar is a “musical community”© focused on lifelong learning.
Whether your child is attending public school, private school or is home schooled, KinderGuitar has application to develop skill sets that will be useful for a lifetime. The Curriculum is shown below.
As the developer of KinderGuitar®, award winning guitarist, Leonardo Garcia had an “interest in finding ways to engage children in the process of learning”© and “musical community”©, unlike mainstream music lessons. As a parent and artist, he has put into action his own methods for education, skill building, socialization, play, and teaching; teaching which involves not only the child but the parent. I would like to invite you to contact me about the KinderGuitar program and how it can serve as an area of enrichment for your child, for you, and your community.

“Children Creating Beauty While Experiencing Lifelong Learning”©
ROD BURR has been playing the guitar for 46 years. At the age of 13 he took his brother’s Stella guitar and learned to play by watching a summer series from KQED, Laura Weber’s Folk Guitar. This tied into the same year that Mason Williams premiered his remarkable piece “Classical Gas” on the Smothers Brothers Variety hour that alone was impetus.
As a budding guitarist the classical genre was new to him. He started studying with Musicologist, Ron Grosswiler of Denver, and performed his first recital at the age of 14 playing Carulli and Sor guitar duos. With a stint in a rock band and the waning ideas of a music career, he chose to seek other ways to make a living, however, the guitar was still a lifelong focus. Through studying with New Mexico teachers/ guitarists; Paul Nielsen, Patricia Brothwell, and Cuban master of the guitar, Maestro Hector Garcia (Mestre Emilio Pujol’s teaching assistant), in Albuquerque, New Mexico, year to year, the focus was the same: elegant, beautiful music with refined technique and a pure velvety sound.
