Well; as I said in the post title, I'm not father but, in my opinion; let your son learning by himself!!!. When he wants to get a teacher he would choose one; you, billy sheehan or jaco's memories!!!.
I'll tell you my story. When I was eight years old I had a lot of interest in music and my mum wanted me to go to a music school to learn classical guitar...Do you imagine what would been of my career if I learned guitar??¿?¿?!?!?. Yeah; I had been one more in the evil files of guitarists... :o((((
After four years I decided to pick up bass and start with those funky grooves and things like that!!. Now I love bass (as you all know) and I can't give it up...I've learned it by myself for four years, but the last two years I went to a good jazz teacher (but because I wanted to!!) and he helped me a lot.
Now I returned to my self-teaching period again and I'm developing in a good way!
Tim; I suppose that you'd love that your son was the best bass player but in my oppinion let he choose and give him advice from the most objective viewpoint you can...
Of course; this is only the opinion of a 19 years old boy
Enjoy life as it was your son's music!! ;o)
