I've been tutoring beginner guitar for one year now and see my students for hour-long lessons once a week. I do at-home tutoring with all my current students at their homes, I find it helps a lot to be in comfortable environment.
A lot of my students have been girls and shy kids who feel more comfortable with a female teacher, and with somebody who understands them better and can relate.
Many of the music schools or school-offered programs available to students don't really take into account what the student wants to get out of learning the instrument; I've had personal experience with this. As well as setting students up with all the essential tools for mastering guitar, I like to ask the students what they want to learn. I want them to be excited about playing and learning, that's what is most important.
We have a lot of fun during lessons, learning our favourite songs and challenging ourselves just that little bit more every week. It gives me great personal satisfaction and such a good feeling to see a student improving and doing things they always said they would never be able to do. If your child has shown interest in learning guitar, I'd love to help them realise a dream.
