I gauge what they know. My first question, "what is your main goal for this instrument?"
after that, I get them familiar with the instrument, what each part is and how it makes it sounds.
from there, it's growth based on aptitude and willingness.
I went to the school of real life experience. I was in a performing act (band) for 7 years touring around the South East playing shows. I have been a songwriter and producer for 15 years.
I felt like I have a bunch of knowledge and perspective that can better another generation of musicians and how selfish of me would it be to hoard all of that information??
I have worked with first time learners, intermediate players to proficient musicians. Everyone can learn something new from a new perspective!
What can the teacher play? Can they themselves be coach able? Are you teaching straight from a book? Are the lessons open to visitors?
