Practicing effectively is the SECRET to becoming a better guitar player. If your students don’t practice, they won’t IMPROVE…and they probably won’t STAY with you for very long. If you want to succeed as a guitar teacher, you have to teach your students how to practice effectively.
In this episode, I’ll give you 7 tips to help your students practice more effectively, which in turn will help them get better results on the guitar. I’ll also tell you what DOESN’T work, and I’ll even throw in a few surprises for you…some things you may not know about what practicing can do for you as a guitar player! Finally, I’ll wrap things up with some cool free resources you can use to help your students practice more effectively.
