Although I stress the learning of music theory right from the start, I make sure to tailor every lesson to what the student is interested in. If it's learning popular songs, that's what we'll do, but I'll always find a way to fit some theory in- relating to what the student wants to learn. I'm a very open minded teacher, it's never "my way or the highway". I want to make lessons and practicing fun for the student so they'll stay motivated to keep playing!
I also have recording equipment that I like to utiliize during lessons. I can help students write songs, record backing tracks to play over at home, or even record the lesson so they can remember everything we did when they get home!
