So far, I've taught some kids and adults. I've learned that teaching kids versus teaching adult students is different. Each age group would require their own tasks. For instance, if I were to be teaching a kid who is maybe 10 years old, I would start off by introducing the notes on the instrument. Then, I would create games or exercises based on the new stuff we'd cover. For an adult student, I wouldn't use any games on them. I would find out from the adult student if there's something they already know about the instrument, then I'd go from there. If they've never picked it up before, I'd start by explaining the notes and strings of the instrument before moving on to chords or easy songs.
It would be very important for the student to have their own passion in music and the instrument they wish to play. Passion is the key to a successful music student. There would be commitments to make if a student wishes to learn private guitar lessons from me, such as making sure they are on time for their lesson. I'm more than welcome to help the student find out what it is they want to learn if they're undecided. By finding out what kind of music student is interested in, I would help keep the student motivated to learn and come back for more lessons.
Accomplished musician who is "one" with his instrument! Member of a band, lots of useful advice. My son learned a lot.
Super patient and knowledable
Jon has been really great with my son. Very knowlegable and patient!
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
