"I usually start a student off in an informal manner until I find out where they are, what they like and where they want to go. Depending on their level, I introduce new chords to them, basic tonal centers, (need to know progressions), signature guitar licks, riffs, scales and I try to sneak in a bit of theory as we go. I encourage improvisation, innovation all the while focusing on the student's wants, as not to bore them with all the math behind the music. (This is my approach mostly with beginners). With intermediate and advance students I will try to enlighten them with some basic theory. I think it is important to learn songs they like and can relate to, and ultimately grasping the concept of playing with others."
