In weird twist of fate, I was recently hired on as bass instructor at the local University of Wisconsin extension, the same place where I briefly studied. Although I feel uniquely unqualified for the job, my saving grace is that my only student is a beginner who is making the transition from electric bass. The kid was suffering along with a violin instructor until the department chairman happened to hear me play in a local production of Les Miserables. If they keep me on next fall, my greatest fear is that Ill end up with a student who is more advanced than I am! I think, overall, it will be a good experience and will inevitably improve my own playing. In my official capacity, I'm heading up to Richard Davis' bass conference at UW Madison this weekend hoping to pick up on some teaching methods and materials. Any general advice?
