A big mistake that people make in their guitar instruction is to teach all their students as if they all had the exact same needs. This approach causes many problems for your guitar students, and in the end will make it harder for you to retain them over time. The problem with this approach is that it applies general solutions to specific guitar playing problems.
One great example of this applies when teaching advanced guitar students. Most advanced students already have a great deal of knowledge on guitar and do not necessarily need help in the realm of ‘learning new things’. Often, these types of students need someone to coach them and help them overcome current obstacles in their guitar playing.
