We are now carrying the ErgoPlay Guitar Support for Kids. I’ve made you this little video to show you the new guitar support. Sure wish they had these supports for kids years ago! I would have definitely been recommending it to my little students. Here’s the video…
As you can see in the video, it’s a smaller version of the ErgoPlay Tappert Guitar Support. These supports are made in Germany. That may be why they are of such good quality.
With my younger students, I usually had them use a footstool. Without raising the neck of the guitar, it’s very difficult to either sit with good posture or play with a good guitar technique. The problem with using a footstool is that it throws off your lower back.
If you’re just playing for short amounts of time, using a footstool is fine, but if you play for longer stretches of time it’s not good for your back.
This support is also best for adults who play smaller guitars, like a 3/4 size instrument. There are some top notch guitars that cost thousands of dollars that are 3/4 size instruments. You should use the instrument that fits your frame and budget.
All of the ErgoPlay Guitar Supports are available in our ‘Store’ and we have them all listed here with a video of how to assemble and use the supports – ErgoPlay Guitar Supports
My early video lessons were filmed with an A-frame Guitar Support, but the ErgoPlay is more adjustable and the suction cups don’t pop off as much as the A-frame support did.
This support can help kids sit up straighter while playing the guitar. That also can help with singing because if your posture is good, that frees up your lungs to support your singing.
