If you haven’t come across dropbox yet then you are sorely missing out. DropBox allows you to have a 24 / 7 memory stick floating around in Cyberspace installed on every computer & iPhone you use both locally and / or in the cloud. If you haven’t given it a look here are my top 5 reasons why you should. You’ll never go back.

You may say: “But I always do that and I make due.” Or “I don’t need to plan, because I can figure it out as I go.” You may also say that you have not yet reached your goal. If you are talking about an ongoing task, you will realize that the task is much more difficult than it would be if you had a plan.

There could be many reasons why your child has decided to quit learning their musical instrument. But one reason that you should consider first is the teacher. If your child is enrolled in group lessons, sit in the back of the classroom and observe. Don’t go out to run errands. Stay there and see how the teacher is instructing the class. Is she teaching in a way that you would find fun and interesting? If the answer is no, then your kid probably doesn’t think so either.

Manage to be well organized at all times. Make use of labels and folders to make your job easier. Segregate all the paper works as soon as you can and develop a systematic lesson plan. This way you will not loose track on the things that you should give more attention to.

If the child is between 6 and 12-years-old, I would enroll her in private instruction. She will get the most out of the one-on-one attention. If you have it in your budget, you could enroll your child in the Suzuki class for a year, which meets once a week, and then also enroll her in private instruction once a week. This would give your kid the best of both worlds because the teaching methods are different. After a year of the Suzuki Method, I would just keep your kid in private lessons going forward.

Once you understand which part of the music you want to play you then can better target the books that you will need to get to study this particular type of music and this type of guitar. It is not difficult to narrow it down but making the decision in your mind makes it that much more final and starts you on the road to a specific journey which you should try not to deviate from. Although all guitarist eventually can play at least a bit of the other styles, you should start your learning with a very specific goal in mind.
