Hello everyone, some teaching advice wanted. I'm getting asked to do lessons regularly, and I have given lessons to maybe 7-8 students the last year. I find I am often not sure how to teach them really well. One problem is the material - I've tried a few books and going over them together with the student. Most of them get bored quickly. I find it hard to balance the theory and practice. There is not much material you have time to go over in a half hour lesson. The stuff on http://www.teachguitar.com/ seems like it could be very useful, anyone tried any of those books? Another problem is giving them work to do. Mostly I've showed them how to play a song in the lesson, explaining what chords are being used, technique, etc. Should I record background tracks on a CD, print out tabs and notation, the whole shabang? That is a lot of work for me to do for each song, and it's not how I learn songs myself. Anyway, if you have any suggestions on how to teach beginners (and slightly more experienced ones), please let me know.
