How To Find Great Guitar Students

One of the greatest challenges facing the guitar teacher is finding good students, and avoiding bad students. Good students can be defined as interested, eager to work, and enthusiastic about learning guitar. They are stimulating to teach, they make you feel like you are getting "money for nothing"! Bad students are the opposite, the agony of being in the lesson is quite evident on their faces, and as the teacher, you feel like someone has opened one of your veins, and… Continue

Guitar Ability: You Have More Than You Think!

There are a few things I find myself repeating over and over to the many students I meet in the course of my teaching days, students of all ages, genders, and guitar styles. One is "your shoulder is tense, relax it". Another is "you have a lot of talent for guitar, but it is covered up by bad habits you got from wrong practice".Almost always, the student is shocked to hear this. In fact, they have trouble believing it. They don't think I am serious when I tell them they have a lot of talent for… Continue

Guitar Instruction: The True and the Useful



From time to time I receive books from guitar teachers who want me to read their new method book and give them my estimation of its value. Sometimes they even ask me to recommend the book, and write a blurb for them. I am then put in the position of telling them that I never do that.



The reason I don’t do that is quite simple: I have no way of knowing the value of someone’s guitar method book. It is amazing to me that they are even assuming I could know the value of their book.… Continue

Jamie,

I am one of the administrators of the Acoustic Newb group and just found out you were suspended from the group some time ago.  I have no idea how or why this happened, and I had always appreciated your participation, so I'm sorry, and I'm sorry it took so long to discover this.  I've just reinstated you.  I hope you will return.

Walt

Hi Jamie Marie Andreas,I Loved the way you played "Yesterday"by the Beatles.My favorite band from the 60's.I am going to get a nice classical,I had a C&FMartin classical I had borowwed from a guy who owned a pawn shop.he didn't play guitar but he ask me what I thought so I had it for the whole summer.And that is where I was playing all kinds of music on it the finger picking made everything lovely.So great job I'll have to check out somemore of your music.
