Private Lessons
This section is for those curious about taking lessons and teaching lessons. Here is a list of subjects and lists that need to be taken into account in this subject. As a student one must know what he is getting into as well as the instructor. 

Both jobs need to be taken seriously. Taking lessons is a passing on of experience and knowledge from one person to another. The student must understand that the instructor although getting paid for his instruction, is by no means being compensated properly for his experience and knowledge. An instructor has to want to teach and a student has to want to gain the knowledge of the instructor. This is a relationship.  If one of the parties is weak or is not doing his part, the student will not learn and the instructor will be frustrated and will lose interest in the student.
