For beginning students I try to start with the essentials.  It is important for young children to become familiar with the instrument, the proper way to hold an instrument. The proper way to sit when playing or stand while singing.  Fundamentals at the earliest ages are essential.  Practicing the fundamentals leads to success which leads to a desire to learn more about the instrument.

All students are different, and all people learn differently.  That being said, I make sure to teach all of my students in a unique way. Many students want to learn piano for instance, but if the student has a problem with rhythm, I would move away from the piano and play exercises that involve clapping, singing, or anything the student needs to first understand rhythm.  The foundations must first be grasped and the students performance will only get better.  Though I teach to the student's needs, I am open to ideas if it benefits the student.  As for lesson books and materials, I tend to wait until the second lesson so I can evaluate the student's level.

For many of my newbie beginners who are young in age I will approach them with two preferred methods for instrumental music.  Those are Essential Elements and Accent on Achievement.  These methods are great because they get the student playing right away, but still retain a slow and steady tragectory as to not overwhelm the student either.  For my older students who may either be returning to music or even just starting out there are various adult beginner methods I use that go at a similar pace and keep the adult student interested.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
