: Hello there everybody.I need help with something;however,only those with kids might be able to help with this one(although i respect ANYONES opinion.)
: My son is almost nine.He is showing an interest in music(i started on bass when i was ten.)I bought him a bass,and have started to show him some things.
: My question;should i teach him myself?I can definitely get him started,but if he decides to continue,would he be be better off with another teacher?I feel that even though he shares my name,his own musical voice may not develope(he may become a clone of dad.)
: Some people have already said get him his own teacher.What do you guys think?
: Peace,and keep on groovin'!
I have been there, my friend. I taught my son at first, and when his curiosity blew up into a full time love for music, I sent him to a teacher. Today he is a music major at UGA, and is one of the most incredible guitarists/bassists/drummers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Whatever you do, don't frustrate the lad with his music... do whatever it takes to help him fall in love with music... whatever style he likes.... you will not regret it.
