In this episode, I’ll be talking about two very different approaches to teaching guitar: leading off with music theory or going with songs, instead. There’s quite a bit of contention about this and lots of guitar teachers who fall on one side of the fence or the other…today I’ll tell you about the pros and cons of each, and give you MY thoughts on which way is best.
I’ll also get into how to be BALANCED as a guitar teacher so you don’t have to choose between making a good living and being a good teacher. Finally, I’ll finish up with some good advice and some action steps for improving as a guitar teacher and covering all the bases, so that you really can have it all!
