I've given private guitar lessons at a local music shop for many years now, and recently started teaching English in a regular classroom. Which leaves me pulling my hair out. I started teaching as a teenager, and aside from receiving music lessons at the shop, I have no REAL education in music. That is not to say that I am not a schooled musician; in fact I know more than most. And, I'm REALLY good at teaching guitar; one of my students is playing Randy Rhoads solos note for note with local cover bands at 14 within a year of picking up the instrument from studying with me. I've been toying with this idea for a while: would it be possible, since I already have a secondary ed degree, to teach music instead? I realize I'd need to get some more schooling, but since I've only focused on teaching English, I'm not really sure where to start. Any idea what type of programs I should pursue? See, I'd like to teach music, maybe not so much in a classroom setting, but rather continue teaching privately for a reputable music school (or perhaps eventually open my own) as opposed to catch as catch can lessons. I realize the pay would probably be less and benefits might not be so great, but I feel much more pride in it and find it more rewarding with my guitar students than I've ever felt teaching in a classroom.
