    Dom,

    You the best teacher, I ever had, hands down. I still have notes you scrawled for me all those years ago. You're the best.

    Cheers
    Seth Shapiro

    This is so true Dom. The greatest teachers I have had loved what they did and had the patience and knowledge to teach me. I have the same approach and I think it's also very important to understand "how" people learn and not put everyone in the same box. That's why teaching a class takes experience and skill since you have so many different levels and learning styles all together. But inspiration is truly the key, whether is is from your own example or others. Today there are so many musicians going into teaching just to make money but their heart is not into teaching. Hopefully they will recognize and attempt to learn how to teach and find the joy and fulfillment that it brings along with playing their instrument. Thanks for a well written and well needed article.
