Tongue in cheek? On the contrary - a student who lets me do all the thinking has no vision of where they want to get to with the guitar; they simply can't be bothered even to think of a piece of music they would like to learn, or work on, or look at to see if it might be suitable for their skillset. I agree that a classical guitar student will not automatically know all the repertoire, but the problem exists in the rock guitar student body too - I might be teaching Avenged Sevenfold to someone who has an unsatisfied urge to play the Spice Girls; if he doesn't tell me I'll never know.muirtan wrote:Mmmmm. I've always. apart from 2 occasions, let my tecaher choose what I'm to learn next. He can see where I need to improve and what pieces are best for that improvemnet. Also he has introduced me to so many pieces i'd never come across. A couple of times he's said what would you like to do next and he'll get a vague answer 'something spanish' or something classical'. After all I pay him to teach me which includes enabling me to progress in the best way possible.

We get on really well and I've been with him for over 8 years.
