When I teach I put heavy emphasis on basic music theory skills. I believe this helps students in their future development to learn things on their own. Techniques are important on the instruments, but learning how to practice is equally if not more important. I like to cover a variety of music into lessons, and ultimately like to let students play what inspires them.
