The Huge Mistake That Causes Guitar Students To Quit Taking Lessons With You

by Tom Hess

Teaching every guitar student in the same way is ineffective.

This approach causes students to become frustrated, quit and take lessons with your competitors instead. Different guitar students have different goals, skill sets, needs and motivations.

Getting great results requires using a specific lesson plan for each one.

Here’s The Action Step To Take Right Now:

Start teaching your guitar students with a goal-based mindset.

Identify your students’ specific musical goals the first time they call you about taking lessons. Then continually help them reach those goals (and create new ones) when they take lessons with you.

Teaching students based on their specific goals helps you create a plan that takes them from start to finish in the most effective way possible.

The more you teach in this manner, the better you get at it (note: you improve much faster with guitar teacher training).

Helping your students achieve their musical goals faster and more effectively makes them better players faster... AND generates positive word-of-mouth to provide you with many new students without you even needing to advertise.
