Guitar teaching tip: teach less and train more. Telling your guitar students what to do is not enough. You must walk them through the process of practicing the way you tell them to practice. This ensures that:

  • Your students learn how to think through their challenges under your guidance. This makes them self-reliant and builds confidence in their ability to reach their goals.
