Dilemma: Baby likes peaceful music. Mom and Dad like Nine Inch Nails.
Solution: Rockabye Baby
You haven’t fully appreciated AC/DC until you’ve heard “You Shook Me All Night Long” played by a music box.
This is awesome! Just the thing for my little girl!
I’m seriously looking at giving guitar lessons. My question is how
can i give effective lessons and still make it fun at the same time? My students will probably be from ages 8-18. I have been playing guitar for 20 plus years. Unfortunately I do not know how to site read music. Do you think this will be a problem in giving lessons? I know how to read tab, I know tons of scales and chords as well as songs. Any recommendations you may for an effective lesson plan or
just any tips at all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a bunch.
Awesome, Steve! Don’t let your lack of note-reading skills get in the way–I don’t read standard notation much, and was also concerned about this when I started. But my philosophy is, capitalize on your strengths, and as long as you’re up-front with your students about your strengths and weaknesses, there’ll be no expectations dashed. I feel like I give my students a great experience even if they have that piece of their education missing (note reading). It would have been a shame if I had let that discourage me from ever starting.
And you can always learn as you go. I’ve gotten much better at reading notation since I started teaching.
Here’s a blog entry I wrote about the business side of things:

Good luck, and let me know how it goes!
