What is it

Learning guitar chords can be difficult for anyone as a beginner as you have to remember unfamiliar chord shapes and finger positions or sketch rough illustrations on song sheets. Creative Learning Concepts have developed the easy to use peel-able chord stickers, primarily for young children and, of course, anyone who is a beginner.

The songbook actively helps children and beginners learn how to play a stringed instrument by the use of colourful drawings, adhesive guitar chord labels, reward stickers and a music CD.

The CD helps with breathing exercises, guitar tuning and timing.

What our team of testers said

"I like the stickers!" - Girl aged 5

What our experts think

Our testers were really keen to progress their skills and this was a lovely way to simplify learning. The handy CD guides children through playing chords and tunes and we found the tuning guide really helpful. Through practice children’s confidence can grow and this could inspire them to play other instruments too.
Playing music is great for creativity – we love that this set encourages children to compose their own tunes. It’s also a good way to improve memory and concentration skills

It would be even better if...

Some children found that there was quite a big jump in difficulty between the first tune (Little Miss muffet) and the second tune (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star), and this could put some of them off trying, so, with a little more practice, this could help encourage the children and beginners to move on to the next tune.
Parents may also be required to help children tune their instruments before practicing the songs which could be fun for both child and parent learning together.
