Ted on Teaching “The Big 4”

“… the student has to know that he or she is working on something that will yield results. Even if at first, it comes down to them just trusting me to know, the progress will show, will show up if they’re putting in the time.  So ideally, they have to know what they want to learn, and that they will get it if they work hard enough.  My job is then to give them the tools for them to manifest the skill they are after. There it is. There’s my “ What They’ll Work On” setup, the ‘Big Four’ in this regard : What STYLE of Music, what FORMAT, which of course will require what SKILLS, which will in turn necessitate them learning what TOOLS ?”
