Very true and you're very right sir, mine too and hope it always will.
I'd love nothing more then to demonstrate what I'm doing and explain in such a way that I just know I'm right.
That's why I made this thread...The doing is not my problem, the explaining is.
I know that's hard to do...maybe impossible. But there has to be a better way then what we have circulating now. Simple, Logical, Easier to wrap the mind around for the student.
Practicing correctly, sensibly, makes perfect
Just practicing makes permanent
This I do know!
If I only get a nudge here and there it's perfectly allright with me..I'm not claiming to know anything
Ok, there's a student..he want's to make pudding.
I say...well do it then
He says..what do I use?
I say...I'm sorry kid, I don't know if I'm honest...but here, go learn in what ways you can serve it! (music theory) oh, and pay me my money
But yeah, setting up a new way of teaching is useless if I can't convince myself..
So I'm going to try and do that and run thoughts and ideas by you guys
It's not a matter of life and death, it's also something I enjoy investigating
