This is the first blog on the first day of the new website. I expect it'll be the first of many!
When I began teaching, I knew that it would be important to build a good relationship with students. Obviously, a good relationship means that the student is happier and more motivated, but it was a while before I realised that the teacher could get as much from that relationship as the student does. Gradually you realise that you form friendships and bonds and that you become part of a community of people with shared goals and experiences (not always guitar related!). If only for that reason, this is a wonderful job.
Long may it continue!
