    Why would you not want to practice technique? Yeah, it gets boring to practice, but that's what makes a good player.
  3. i have decent technique out of a few years playing, its the music part i want to get much better at

    Hi there.

    My son already plays and I would like to learn the basics if I can, online. Does anyone know of any where online where I can learn.

    Thanks a bunch.

    You might use your teacher to broaden your musical view.

    Genre you might never have otherwise listened to.

    Learn pieces, songs, tunes.
    If you play "popular" styles, standards, song structure and (sight) transposing are good to do.
  7. cool! thanks

    if a teacher allowed me to dictate the direction of the lessons, i wouldn't go. if you're seeking a teacher, then you're not qualified to write the lesson plan.
