Many parents often ask when should children learn an instrument. The answer is: as soon as possible! However, you shouldn’t expect toddlers and preschoolers to sit on a 30-minute lesson and listen to explanations and learn terms and complex directions. But what is the purpose of exposing them as early as possible? To gain experience and meaningful connection with music at a young age. Therefore, it helps to buy them a basic piano or a basic guitar equipment so that they can gain experience and connection with music. Aside from there, here are a few tips to help them learn music:

Teaching in Groups

Kids learn better in an environment where they can explore, learn from their peers and feel at ease. However, there would be some shy children and it will take some time for them to embrace the group situation. Have patient with these kind of students and understand that they are learning by observing and there is no need to pressure them to perform.

Movements are Important

Kids do not sit really well, they always want to be on the move. They need to feel the rhythm and music in their bodies as they are hands-on learners. They have to be completely immersed in the world of music. This can be easily done by marching to the sound, tapping your knees or matching the words to their actions.

Repetition is the Key to Learning

Practice makes perfect isn’t it? And practice means doing the same thing over and over again until you can do it effortlessly like you do your breathing. When teaching kids, not just in music, it is important not to rush things to the point that the children begins to feel lost. Kids do have a short attention span, but that doesn’t mean they won’t enjoy listening to their favorite song three times. Repeating activities in each class greatly helps them understand a lesson better.


Kids always learns the best by playing. They do this by experiencing the world around them by hand, touching, and even tasting almost everything they can lay their smalls hands on. They will never absorb anything that consists of lengthy explanations and drills. Helping them to learn in a play-centered environment can be of great help to aid them.


Kids always love routine and they always like to know what will happen next. Kids will be able to learn more smoothly and quickly if the activities follow a set of routine. One example is by opening each class with a welcome song, then flashcards, then movement activities, keyboards and many others. As long as the activities are sequenced, music lessons can be a lot easier, not only for the kids but also for the teachers.

Although just a prototype, this one proves that 3D printing guitar parts are feasible.

I think if he used a different kind of 3D printing filament, the result will be very different. But seeing as he intends to use it for mass production, it might not be feasible. If you intend to print your own, make sure you carefully choose the right type of 3D printing filament to make sure that you can have a functional and durable final product.
