I have taught guitar to a number of beginners and I believe that early quick advances in skills is a great way to boost confidence as well as technical ability. Prior to teaching I ask students what genre of music they enjoy and artists they listen to. I then try to tailor my teaching to there tastes.
By learning songs the student knows it creates a passion early on in the learning process.
However, no compromise is made in the standard of teaching as technique is central to a good guitar player. As is the development of ones musical ear and therefore in my lessons I also suggest songs to listen to/ watch on YouTube which will enable the student to understand the technique in question.
I have been giving lessons on and off for around 3-4 years and have taught a number of students of different abilities. I have taught students from beginner through to high level intermediate level, from not being able to play a single note, to being able to play most of the songs they desire to learn and beyond.
