First, I assess skills, likes/dislikes and goals. I try to pin-point areas of weakness and try to formulate a plan to improve a student's playing through playing and custom-tuned drills.
I have been playing guitar for almost two decades now (more years than I haven't!) and from a young age I show an acuity for the guitar. I have dedicated my life to being a guitar player/songwriter in the best veins of American music and have a deep respect for the history of music and musicianship.
Well---I was good at guitar, I'm personable and hyper-focused on the instrument so eventually people wanted to pay me to learn how to do it.
Kids as young as 8 up to middle-age adults. My preference is for young adults or teens who are serious about getting better at the instrument. A passion to learn is the most important thing for a new player.
I got picked up to write for Reverb.com and I started private selling guitars in addition to teaching!
Hire a teacher who can play! There are so many "guitar teachers" out there. Actually take time to find someone who's intensly studied the instrument from a young age. I'm obsessed and guitar dominates every aspect of my life from playing to teaching to selling.
Am I serious about this? What are my goals? Am I willing to consistently dedicate an hour a week, 4 times a month to lessons and 15-30 minutes of daily or bi-daily PRACTICE time (at a bare minimum) to get to where I want to go?
