The holiday season is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking about what you want for Christmas! Well, we’re here to convince you that a new guitar should be at the top of your list.

And here’s why.

Guitars are the gift that keeps on giving

Playing the guitar is a lifelong journey. There is always something new to learn, a melody in your head to compose, a technique to improve upon. Unlike some Christmas gifts, the guitar will no doubt deliver years of joy. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Guitars are versatile

When someone picks up a guitar, the possibilities are limitless. There is no one way to use a guitar – you can play it alone, play it with others, learn a complicated solo, or strum away to your favourite song, learn to sing, or peruse a career as a musician. It’s up to you!

What’s more, whatever your musical taste – from rock to jazz, pop to classical – there are guitar pieces you can learn.

Playing guitar will help you de-stress

It has been proven time and time again that playing an instrument can help minimise your stress levels. And during the busy Christmas season, we could all do with a moment to ourselves.

Practicing your guitar will give you an opportunity to switch off from school or work, put down the technology, and focus on the here and now. It’s almost like a meditation – as you draw all of your attention to the way you move your hands and the sound of your guitar, you are practicing mindfulness.

A new guitar is fun for the whole family

Sharing is caring and ‘tis the season for giving, so why not ask for a Christmas present that’ll bring joy to all.

Once you learn a couple of songs, you can perform for friends and family. Ask others to join in by singing along or playing their instruments of choice.
