So I just got a phone call from a local Music Academy here in Ottawa asking me if I'd be interested in teaching bass for them. - I have never had any formal instruction - my knowledge of theory is not that great, although it isn't non-existant - my reading skills aren't incredible, although again not non-existant I explained this to the lady on the phone, and she basically thought for a second and then asked, "So, how much would you charge?" I turned it down, telling her I don't feel I have the qualifications. Now, since then, I've talked to a couple friends/musicians I play with - two of whom teach out of a school of music - and they seem to think I should have taken it. They basically figure that as long as I'm able to stay one step ahead of the student I'm doing alright. One of my friends is a guitar teacher, but also does banjo and violin lessons despite basically learning what he's going to teach for the lesson on those instruments right before the student shows up. They also mentionned there are probably more experienced teachers there already who would be able to handle the better players. So... do you think I made the right choice? Should I call them back and ask them to consider me for the position? Or should I sit here and know I did the honourable thing?
