    Cool, now who would you AVOID and WHY? That actually may be a better start in my search...

    Actually, BigDub is out of commission for a bit. He is in recovery at this time, undergoing rehab for an injury he sustained of recent. Our kind thoughts are with him for a speedy recovery. In the meanwhile, my posts will only be half legible

    On the good list include Jason Klobnak, a.k.a., DrKlobz here on TM. You can check out his web site , jasonklobnak for details. I've been working with him for about 6-7 months and have learned alot.

    I'm guessing you should avoid people who don't know "a freakin scale or chord". ;-)

    Nope, never.

    It is also my personal belief that there are things that we cannot virtualize.

    Practice monitoring is perhaps possible, but I define lessons as something more intimate. There is a difference between giving tips or real TEACHING.

    If I consider what gets worked on most when I give lessons, I can say that it is impossible even with an HD connection to get enough info to TEACH and see what the students body and breathing are doing.

    I am sure if we start collecting real data that the performance of online lessons would very easily be "put in its place". If the student only wants tips, then I guess it is only an issue of whether someone wants to pay for them in this way. The whole concept does not fit with my knowledge of the human body, mind or soul.

    Yep, technology has not yet developed holographic imaging and/or biometric attachments the student must wear during lessons. I concur the best lessons can only be given live ... person to person.
