Choosing a Guitar

Guitars and guitar accessories we recommend


Many parents have asked us what size, type of guitar they should purchase. To give you an idea, we recommend

  • for ages 5 to 8 a 1/2 guitar

  • for ages 8 to 12 a 3/4 size guitar

  • for ages 12+ and adults a full size guitar

  • for older children and adults a full size guitar

We participate in the Amazon Affiliate Program in order to make available through our website the guitars and guitar accessories we recommend for our students, making sure they can be delivered to the towns of Arlington, Burlington, Lexington, Medford, Stoneham, Winchester and Woburn. As an amazon affiliate, we receive a small commission in exchange for this service.
