Guitar teaching is about quality, not quantity

[last tip] [tips index] [next tip]

This means that you should concentrate on teaching a small number of things really well in a single lesson, rather than attempting to teach a large number of things somewhat sketchily.

Never be tempted to add time on to a lesson to make up for real or imagined poor quality of teaching - why would your client prefer 90 minutes of poor teaching to 55?!

We all have lessons that go less well than they should. The trick is to end off promptly and spend the spare half-hour working out how to do it better next time.
