I want to teach....
I'm a self-taught drummer with at least 15 years behind me on the kit. I've been considering teaching but I am not really sure how to go about setting up a curriculum for beginners. I'm the type of guy that listens to a song, figures out the part on drums, and then it's stuck in my mind but I'll be damned if I could ever write it out on paper because I do not read drum music (not very well anyway). So, the challenges before me are how to set up a plan (six month, 1 year...yada yada) to work with students. Do those of you who teach use a book that is on the market to teach from or to at least fashion portions of your lessons from?
Also, if any of you who teach would care to share effective ways to teach different concepts, I would love to hear your input. In my current job as a radar field engineer, teaching is a part of my job so I'm not foreign to teaching but I know that teaching drums is a lot different than teaching about military spy radar systems and so I bow to the expertise of you who teach and look forward to hearing your thoughts. Feel free to message me off the boards if you like.
Thanks and have an awesome week!
