A Review Of Loog Guitars
*I received a gift card to put towards this purchase from Share-a-sale, however, the thoughts and opinions are my own*
I purchased a Loog Guitar for my son’s birthday. Last year on Christmas we had gotten a Schoenhut piano for him and my daughter to share and they love it. He also has some bongos that he loves to beat on and sing songs. There’s a lot of guitar players in my family and it seemed only natural that he would love it too.
Quality kids guitars aren’t easy to find. That’s what I love about the Loog! The Loog Guitar is a child-sized, 3-string guitar that tunes like a regular guitar, plays like a regular guitar and even sounds like a regular guitar. The really cool thing is that learning finger placements for the Loog will translate over to a six string as well!
My son just turned 4. He carries this guitar around everywhere!! He’s so excited about learning and makes up songs and sings them while he plays. His songs sometimes go like this-
“I’m grumpy, I’m grumpy, my mommy makes me go to bed, I’m grumpy”
So maybe he’s got a career in country music? Just Kidding! Seriously though, it’s been proven that music offers many benefits to kids.
Music stimulates the brain regions that involve reward and emotion. It also teaches kids to listen. It’s been shown that it also helps them pick up foreign languages and detect speech in noises. Not to mention, kids who study music are also shown to have higher SAT scores.
Teaching Kids About Playing Guitar
Loog Guitars come with flash cards that show finger placement as well as an app you can download for iPhone or iPad! The app has finger placement and games
The really cool thing is that does sound like a guitar and is made well overall. I wish I had ordered the strap to go with it, I think it would come in handy. That will be my next purchase with Loog!
Have you tried a Loog Guitar or another instrument with your child?
