I have always been under the impression, that all the adults that were good musicians in my life, that taught, understood the concept that everyone is unique and will learn (best) a certain way specific to them. However, in reality, what are the odds of me running into a teacher that would think and teach that way, or would simply try to work on me as if I was them, and they would attempt to fix all of my problems only the way they were able to fix theirs? What I'm really leading into is, what are the odds of finding a good teacher that will be able to help me specifically the way I need help? Or, is it REALLY better to do it oneself instead of hitting walls with a teacher that cannot help you because they only know what worked for them and it isn't working for you? In the end, if you are generally a smart person, why wouldn't doing it ourselves work? Who knows us better than ourselves? As long as one knows the bad habits, and proper habits, what is the need for a teacher really? Just some thoughts I hope you guys could help me with.
