Maybe use books. Simpler, then you dont have to make lessons up. I wish I originally did that. Also don't expect a consistent flow of money. There's always something that goes wrong in some way.


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

The most important thing at the beginning is to maintain their interest levels. One way is by a blend of learning from books, and songs. Learning new stuff will improve self-confidence and learning songs with help keep learning relavant to them.

yes, I currently teach and the most important thing for the young kids is maintaining their interest in what you're doing. They have such short attention span you have to constantly keep engaging them.
