The student can choose any genre to explore, but they will learn the material thoroughly. It is not good enough to just learn how to play a song from TAB. If you want to be a better player, you have to understand music. I try to do all of this while making the lessons fun. We crack a lot of jokes, but then spend time on some mind twi
