What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, I talk to the student to know why they like the cello and which one are their goals. Is important to know how much they know about music so I have an idea where would I start with the student. Is better to start little by little because everybody has a different way of learning. The importance is that the student had fun adn learn something in each lesson.
