I love it when a student "gets it." That means that all his or her work has come to fruition and they have advanced in their learning. My next task is to take them just a little bit further and conquer the next hurdle. Mine is the only studio that practices "Teach the Teacher" every tenth lesson. The student prepares a lesson and teaches the teacher. Some students love it, others hate it.
He is a very nice and soft-spoken teacher. He plays keyboard well. Would recommend him.
I evaluate his or her prior knowledge and skill abilities, then I determine what a favorite song is they may want to learn to play. Next they fill out an application and I assign a username and password for the MTH website. If they wish to learn to read music, I will start them in one of the commercial courses, of course, I also have specialized instructional materials. If they do not want to learn to read, I will teach simple songs they can play by rote.
