I teach guitar and vocal lessons to beginners, providing them with a fun, hands-on, fast learning approach. No one likes condescension in the classroom. I certainly didn't enjoy being shamed by many of my music professors; it destroyed my confidence which often inhibited my ability to learn.
So, when I started teaching music, my number one priority was to exhibit compassion and patience. I never want anyone to feel ashamed. Instead, I work patiently with my clients, so they can enjoy the learning process and ultimately be better for it!
