Here's my situation. I've been playing bass for nearly 14 years now. I've studied music in college and consider myself a well above average bass player. I've never taught bass lessons however, as I've never been interested in it. Recently though I've been thinking it's something I might want to get into and have thrown around the prospect of taking on a few students. My trouble is, despite my playing skills, I really don't know where to start. I feel it will be difficult for me to teach beginners. I don't really have a method or plan for teaching. I don't want to give somebody a half-assed lesson...if I don't feel I can do it right I don't want to do it. I have alot of knowledge to give, but just not sure how to give it. I had some bad teachers when I started so I know how it feels to try and learn from somebody who just can't teach. I won't be one of those teachers who just sits there and shreds in front of the student for 30 minutes..I've had those. I've also had great teachers, so I know the difference. My great teachers all came when I was fairly advanced though. I feel I could teach an intermediate student pretty well..it's the complete beginners I'm concerned about. Anyways, I guess I'm just looking for advice on getting started by some seasoned teachers out there. Hell, I don't even know the going rate and what I should be charging. Anyways, any advice would be appreciated.
