Why isn't my child eligible for 30 minute lessons?

30 minute lessons are only available to first-time students, age 10 or under. New students sometimes have physical difficulties when learning guitar, such as sore fingers and hands. We offer a 30 minute lesson to first-time students so they can have an easy introduction to the guitar as they build up strength and calluses. For all other students, we require a minimum commitment of 45 minutes per week.
