March 9, 2017 - Cabin Fever and New Student


The poor kids haven’t been out of the house in over a week…and all they did all day was clean.  The weather has been cold and windy the whole time.  We all are going stir-crazy again.  But it should clear up outside this week and we should be able to take another walk hopefully.   We’ll see, but these kids are handling this pretty well.  One day, when we’re traveling around the country in an R.V., they’ll be outside all the time…the whole U.S. will be their backyard.

Today I had a new student.  A guitar teacher’s dream student actually.  This kid has perfect rhythm, and he’s been working on his picking technique for 2 years with the only song he knows…”Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica.   This really has perfected his basic picking skills though.  Everything I taught him he was able perform within a matter of minutes.  He practiced slowly and evenly.  He also is interested in writing his own music.  And he is only 9 years old.
