I have been asked to teach guitar lessons and I wonder what others charge for this?

I charge $35 a lesson, no particular time limit. If they pay for 4 at a time I knock 5 bucks off the price of each, for a total of $120.

Here's a link to my website with my philosophy on how to teach;

so $20 per 1/2 hour
or $35 per lesson ($25 per lesson was the price 11 years ago)
or $40 per 1/2 hour
are the answers so far...

good idea about bringing a blank cassette -- from Mark Ross's website
(or these days, some sort of digital recording device, or video camera)

that is how lessons at Scandinavian music and dance camp are conducted
the tradition is oral, and we learn by ear, not by note...
the notation for the tunes is given as a memory device after the
initial introduction of the tune measure by measure...

I find that in this tradition my musical education as an orchestral player is a handicap as I was trained to learn by note, and so have needed to re-adjust my learning to be by ear rather than by sight.. which is a better one of the senses to have engaged in gear when music is involved!

My potential guitar student has unknown experience with music...
and music theory...so I do not yet know if he can read music or tablature....both of which could be helpful skills...

Does anyone know a good memnomic (memory device) for the names of strings? One young person i know said her music teacher used this one? Every Acid Dealer Gets Busted Eventually....
but there must be another acronym that has a more benign tone to it?
