Getting a new guitar is a pretty exciting thing, as soon as you get it home you will want to pick it and strum away to your heart’s content. You will be eager to learn everything you can about your new guitar as fast as you can so that you can impress your friends with your new abilities. You may even begin having visions of you on the big stage, taking on the world with your new sidekick.
As somebody who has been teaching guitar for a number of years, I must have made a million mistakes. I will probably make a million more. However, if I can help a few of you to learn from my mistakes, without making them yourselves, then great! If you read this and feel that one of the points in this list could be what’s causing communications with your pupils to suffer, I hope that identifying the problem will help you to sort it out.
