This seminar is a unique opportunity to learn all of the elements necessary to become a successful private guitar instructor. Students will focus on skills related to teaching music including developing lesson plans, pacing a lesson, identifying how a student learns, private lesson vs. group lesson teaching techniques, strategies for teaching different types of students and fundamental pedagogical principles. Participants will also learn the business of running a successful private teaching practice including building and maintaining a roster of students, pricing and promotion. Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a certificate of course completion. If you have ever considered becoming a guitar instructor, this is the course for you.
