I like to allow my students to direct me and let me know what it is they want to learn. It is a much more rewarding way to learn when the student finds out they can actually play many of their favorite songs. I like to find ways to incorporate theory lessons into music that is relevant in the students life. Ie. 1) Most Led Zeppelin songs are built around blues progressions, 2) Bands like Radiohead and Coldplay emulate composers like Wagner and Mozart and Bach 3) Nirvana relates to Jazz improvisation and inside/outside playing techniques. 4.) Many popular songs on the radio follow a I IV V chord progression. When you show a student how music knowledge translates into the music they are close to, they become much more excited about learning the language of music, and that is what I aim for.
