Question: How should i go about persuading my parents to let me learn guitar!?
So I've wanted to play guitar for awhile now!. I'm 15 and i was thinking if I don't start now I probably never will! I also think i could do pretty good at guitar and I am very determined!.

How should i go about persuading my mum and dad to let me!.

also i tend to find my dad is cooler with these things so anyway to make sure he gets on my side!.

I'd just love to give it a try =pWww@QuestionHome@Com

First of all, learning ANY instrument is good for self discipline!. Kids involved in music tend to do better in school, because of that "discipline"!. Guitar is good because of it's portability!. I prefer acoustic over electric, but I have both types!. Playing guitar for me is a way to relieve stress, explore my creativity and keeps me from doing things I know I shouldn't be doing!. Two of my four kids can both play guitar, and they're pretty good at it!. They get really good grades and I believe that music really adds alot to people's lives!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

When I read this question I clicked on it, because I was like WTF! Why would your parents NOT want you to learn a new skill, a talent, and play an instrument!. This is the same as learning a new language, or a learning to swim or horse ride!. It's not dangerous, it's not really too noisy, they should be pleased you want to learn to play guitar!.

Before you ask them, ask for somethings that are really outrageous that they will definately say NO to, then when you ask them if you can play guitar they will probably say yes!. Ask them why!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Is it the cost that is making them say no!? If so you could get a Saturday job or paper round to help with them!. Or is it because you have a history of getting into something then dropping it, if that is the case you can only try to persuade them this is different and again help pay towards it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

why are they saying no!?
because of the cost!?
well!.!.i learnt to play, and i can honestly tell you, the crust fingertips are worth it lmao
you need to tell them that being able to play an instrument is generally really good, and that if they dont ley you!.!.!.!.youll just do it anyway ahaWww@QuestionHome@Com

You could start buy asking to do some extra work around the house to earn money to buy a Guitar!.You can find a really good beginner Guitar for a hundred bucks!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

show them some of the cheaper guitars (like epiphone and squier are relatively cheap brands)!.

tell them that they don't need to pay for a teacher, there are a lot of free ones on the internet!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

any parent should be very proud if their son wanted to learn an instrument!.

they will say yes!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
