Many music teachers are slowly turning toward the Loog to teach kids how to play guitar – the instrument holds easy learning and kids at the heart of its design and we’re psyched that so many educators have caught on. David Mills is one of precursors of this movement. We’ve talked about David, our favorite music teacher, over and over and over again – but most of you probably don’t know him that well. That’s why we thought it’d be cool to launch our new Educator Spotlight feature sharing a bit more about it.
We recently checked in with our favorite music teacher, David Mills, to see what he was up to lately – turns out he’s been teaching up a storm at the W.O. Smith Music School (WOS) in Nashville this July and even has video to prove it! Every July, the WOS offers a week-long Day Camp for students aged 7-11 years old, who have little to no experience playing instruments. The kids only pay $50 for the week (the WOS Day camps are funded by the Country Music Association) and, this year, got to play around with multiple instruments to see which one they liked better – Loog Guitar included! Watch the kids play up a storm on their last day...

Well, we found out Johnny Marr was in town and… We just couldn’t resist! That’s Johnny holding his very own Electric Loog Guitar during his show in Montevideo. Turns out, Johnny is just the nicest guy ever – we talked about Montevideo, our mutual friend Andrew Loog Oldham, and the amazing work he does with Rock for Kids in Chicago. Such an honor to give him his own little Loog, which he even genuinely seemed to like a lot!
Last week was our third and busiest NAMM Show to date! We had a blast getting to know so many people and jamming with all the folks who dropped by booth #4715. The Anaheim Convention Center was brimming with energy from morning til night, the people were super nice and open to meeting everyone there […] -- Find out more at http://blog.loogguitars.com
2014 was a year of learning and growth for Loog Guitars. After ending 2013 with the Electric Loog Guitar becoming 100% funded on Kickstarter, this year promised to be awesome. And it was – just not in the way we were expecting. Life has the habit of proving you wrong every time you think you’ve […] -- Find out more at http://blog.loogguitars.com
