I’ve been teaching guitar in the evenings for several years now! A profession like this brings heartwarming experiences from time to time. Knowing that an individual values both music and instrument over the engagement of some sort of vice is just great. A student’s musical and technical progression over weeks and months is something truly tangible and conjures that feeling of joy and satisfaction.
Given that I’m primary a progressive rock/metal player, teaching at all ages certainly keeps me on my toes in respect to the music that is out there – pop and classical music especially!
