    i am still a beginner. Should i choose a teacher that will emphasize on sight reading and notes more by having me practice on meaningless complicated notes or one that will teach me by forgetting about sight reading and having me play the basslines of easy songs and teaching me the role of the bass in a band?(the first one is more of a jazz bassist while the other one is a rock bassist)
    Personally i find the 2nd teacher more fun but less rewarding
     
  2. For me, I'd probably find the 2nd teacher more rewarding as well as fun. But, don't avoid the learning to sight read.
