I've been teaching for about 5 months now and I've learned a lot about myself and music. However I'm not the best teacher I could be. I believe in an individualistic approach, teaching the student their favorite music and applying littler bits of music theory in relatable, ready to understand ways. I do a lot of this by ear though, and sometimes i feel I miss the mark. I have a week before my next lesson and would like to get some tips on how you build curriculums. My 2 current students are on guitar. One is learning chords and applying them to songs by artists like Taylor Swift and the Beatles while going over introductory music reading. The other is younger and plays a lot of 80's metal that i also happen to love, but I'd currently getting less of the theory aspect.
