I believe that it is important to teach every student how to read music. However, I also know that it is important to keep the lessons and the material covered fun and engaging for the student. I like to assign popular music for the student to work on but also cover technique for both the right and left hand.
Professional guitarist in the LA area. I have been teaching for over 8 years now and have taught students ranging in age from as young as 7 to adult. My students have done recitals throughout the year or the occasional family reunion performance.
