I'm currently teaching in the western 'burbs of Chicago. As far as lessons go, I teach what my student wants to learn (and for young, beginner students, the things that student's parents would like for them to learn as well - note reading, etc..). I don't teach what I think they should learn. Oh sure, once I get to know where they want to go, I can offer tons o' stuff that I know will help him/her get to where they want to go - but first and foremost, I want my students to enjoy their lessons so much that they actually look forward to going! :)
