The most important virtues I try to equip my students with are an appreciation and taste for good music, and the ability to self-teach. If the student is interested, music theory and ear-training goes hand-to-hand with playing the instrument itself. Method-wise, I make a plan with the student and set short and long term goals. This plan usually starts with building basic technical skills, then goes on with playing the pieces that the student likes and understanding the pieces, styles and genres. Then I teach improvisation.
Learn Piano, Guitar, Vocals, Saxophone, Clarinet, or Music Production;the easy, the fun way. I take a beginning student from learning the notes of their instrument, reading music, learning beginning melodies, music theory (including scales, and chords), all the way to learning modern pop songs and melodies and playing actual parts from songs on the radio with the recording as well as teaching a student to play pop, jazz, classical or any other genre. Advanced students are encouraged to write music and start creating.
