One comment on “Teaching guitar using lesson plans

  1. I use both as a teacher. I find that using a book along with hand-outs has been an extremely successful strategy for my students. Students get the reward of finishing a designed method plan, which parents also like, while I can implement material that is relevant to the students needs. The handouts should support material in the method book, and the method book/books should be oriented to the style the students likes or has a desire to learn; whether it be classical, jazz, rock, pop, or even metal. What is most important to me as an educator, is to find creative ways to help the students learn to teach themselves, regardless of method used. All methods must be adjusted accordingly, to fit to the learning abilities of each student; kinesthetic, visual, auditory, or spatial learners.
