How the pick is held, where the left hand is placed etc. are all good signs of someone's current playing ability. It's also important to know the student's listening habits and encourage them to listen to music regularly so they have something tangible to compare what they're learning to.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following:I usually speak to the student about the music they have been listening to and we compare what they've been listening to what they've been learning. Next we review the last lesson and then we work on songs or spend a little time improvising in a way that combines what they're hearing in the music they are currently listening to and their past lessons along with new information.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following:Prepared. Has a clear goal. An ideal student usually has a style of music or favorite guitarist in mind to mimmic.
