Musicianswithapps rated it 5/5 stars!
The author, Kelly Weeks decided to create this book because he was let down by the guitar method books for children that are currently available. As a teacher, he wants his young students to be engaged and inspired to play the music. He believes that learning to play music is similar to learning to speak – imitation should precede basic reading and writing skills. Kelly developed this book as an answer for children 4 and up who truly want to play the guitar but may not be ready to read music notation.
To see video demonstrations for each song please click on the "globe" icon or the "on the web" button while in the app. Then click on the media button at the top of the Kasey's Music Jams website.
Also available for the piano

New features + fixes.
Read the Lyrics
I created this app/book for parents and teachers that have a little guitar knowledge and want to teach their children/students to play the guitar. The lyrics are there for you to read out loud before you play the song. They are not meant to be used as a sing along, although you probably could make up a melody to go along with them. Please use this app like a guitar book. Teach yourself first and then use it as a tool to teach your children/students. Have fun!
No words with music
I am at a loss how to teach my child the music with the song because the songs are not sung at all...it's just instrumental. Please help...otherwise I feel that this app is useless for a beginner.
