Guitar Lessons for Children require a slightly different approach as compared to instructing older people because kids are less likely to accept the notion that they have to practice technical elements of guitar playing for their own sake or for some reward (a better technique) at some indeterminate point in the future.
Kids these days, “if it ain’t fun, they’re not doing it!” and the teacher who does not take this simple fact seriously when giving guitar lessons to children will simply have a hard time.
Helping kids to learn the “right” guitar chords and getting them used to changing between them in proper timing is the basic challenge.
The bonus part is when they are already as eager to learn the skill from the beginning.
With children, it is often a good idea to resist the temptation to teach them loads of chords. Instead a much more effective technique is to teach them a few guitar chords that will allow them to play a couple of songs.

Choosing the right amplifier
Ask yourself, what kind of amp are you looking for? Some guitar amps are more suitable to produce a darker tone, other amplifiers are more suitable to produce brighter tones. Some amps can do both.
Are you going for a separate amp head and speaker cabinet or for a combo? Separate amp and speaker look and sound great, but combos are easier to transport.
Are you a control freak? If you like to tweak and shape your sound, a control panel with a lot of knobs is what you want. If you don’t like fiddling knobs, look for a simple control panel.
Is it Portable? If you do a lot of gigs, then weight and size become an issue.
Check the volume levels. Does your amp sound good at low volumes? This is important if you intend to use your amplifier for intimate gigs or as a practice amp.
