Bruce MacNeill Music teachers? (69* d) RE: Music teachers? 02 Apr 09

Eve, I'm sure there are many Mudcatters who teach. They mention it from time to time.

I taught beginner guitar at a music studio when I was a teenager, which was way back in the past century, and I'm trying again. A friend, with no money, has 2 teenaged daughters who wanted to learn to play and I said I'd teach them. For me it's a way of finding out if I can do it without taking money for something I may not be able to do and for them it will at worst be a free start. We're only a couple of months into the process but the girls are practicing and getting better week by week. One wants to learn pop/rock while the other wants to learn classical. I don't do much pop/rock but I do play classical and jazz. At this point it's all the same anyway, music theory, how a guitar works, where the notes are and either flatpick or fingerpicking. I'm using Mel Bay books.

I've always believed that if you know how to do something that is not commonly known, you have an obligation to teach it to someone else. I've taught other subjects back in my real career as a computer geek (retired).

If you've been at this for awhile, you may be more help to me than I'd be to you but you can always ask a question and if I happen to have an answer it's yours, for free. Was there anythng specific that caused you to open this thread?
