Guitar students can choose to quit taking lessons with you for several different reasons. Sometimes it’s because of something you did or didn’t do as a teacher, sometimes it’s just because life gets in the way, and sometimes it’s because they do it to themselves and mess things up.
In this episode, I’ll get into 5 ways your students can sabotage their guitar lessons and what you can do to help prevent that from happening. If you can anticipate and help prevent some of these things with your students, you can improve your retention rates, help them become better guitar players and even help them become better people.
