Bring an open mind, and the ability to be teachable. Be humble and cooperative. Don't worry about what she's teaching you as to how relevant it is to what you personally LIKE. Especially when first learning. That's very important. Take the first 6 months of your life as a guitar playing student, and commit to what you are being taught before throwing in the towel on that teacher.

When I get a new student, the first thing I do is get to know them, their motivations for wanting to learn, an idea of what they'd like to be able to do, and then go over what they will be learning, and any advise or encouragement that I can, to let them know I understand what its like to be new at this, and then assure them that if they do as I say they'll get there.

My average student has been there for over 2 years.

Best,

Sean
