The all-in-one eMedia My Guitar Beginner Pack is the ideal beginning guitar kit for young budding musicians, ages 5 and up. It includes a 1/2-size, classical guitar with a spruce top and rosewood fingerboard. This quality beginner guitar is fitted with nylon strings, making it easier on children’s fingers, and the narrow neck accommodates smaller hands.

The eMedia My Guitar Beginner Pack is a great value – it comes with all the accessories needed to get started: a gig bag, strap, and guitar pick, plus an extra set of strings. What’s more, it includes the award-winning eMedia My Guitar interactive guitar lesson software for Windows and Mac computers and a bonus eMedia My Guitar DVD for learning guitar away from a computer.

eMedia My Guitar features an animated character named Gary the Guitar, who guides children through 60 fun kids’ guitar lessons, authored and demonstrated by professional guitarist and instructor Kevin Garry, Ph.D. It teaches how to tune the guitar, strum easy guitar chords, play kids’ songs, and more!

My Guitar teaches with the help of videos, songs, and Instant Feedback technology that shows whether notes in melodies are played correctly. The Animated Fretboard shows kids where to put their fingers as the music plays, while the speed of music can be adjusted with MIDI tracks so kids can learn at their own pace and slow down difficult lessons or songs. Interactive games interspersed throughout make learning fun and easy.
