I certainly sympathize with wanting to have students read well and not
wanting to teach smoke on the water. But isn't there some sort of
Like what? Should I teach reading for the first half of the lesson and then go with "smoke on the water"? Should I just let the student decide?
what would be wrong with that? you gotta remember that kids come for lessons because something drew them to this instrument. and you can safely bet it wasn't Aura Lee played apoyando style. on a side note it would be interesting which of the teachers in this thread actually do hold a teachers degree ;)
on a side note i'm quite puzzled by some of the answers. is this really the state of guitar teaching in 2009?
"As an instructor I've never been terribly interested in "what interests them"."
"Kids up to age 11 have absolutely no business designing any kind of curriculum
for themselves, (...)"
"Now it runs like clockwork, I turn up ..know what page they are on and can go home and not think a further thought about it...and get the same pay as I used to in the "stressed out" days..)"
me, i teach about 25-30 students per week from beginner classical, to rock, jazz, combo coaching, and even electric bass. i do use a classical method for beginners but there is always place for the student's input and wishes (regardless of age). there is so much more to teaching guitar than just playing page after page from a classical book. eartraining, ensemble play, theory, rhythmic training, singing, improvising, just being silly with your instument, etc pp.
