Episode 139 - Be A Good Student
Taking private lessons can be a wonderful learning experience or a complete waste of time and money. Much of it depends upon what you do as a student.
In this episode I share ten tips, gleaned from my observations with my own private lesson students over many years, that I think will help you make the best progress when taking lessons. Many of these ideas are important whether you are taking private lessons or studying on your own with videos and books.
Don't forget that you can save a pile with the discount coupon code found in my free eBook The Ten Jammandments Discussed. Download it free here.
I also mentioned Jackson's Christmas Songs for Mandolin eBook. You can get it here. Trust me, when Aunt Sally comes to visit this Christmas she doesn't want to hear you play Salt Creek! She wants to hear some Christmas tunes!
