David's Tip of the Day: Non-Harmonica Music Instructor, Part 4 (Preparing)

These are the things to have with you for your first lesson...

1) Printouts of the current songs you're working on (as well as maybe one you can already play well, so you can give them a taste of what you can do).

2) Download the MP3s (original and jam tracks) to your smartphone or burn a CD if that's more convenient (I have students bring their songs on a thumb drive, it makes it very easy for me to load onto my computer and use with my preferred programs).

3) Recording device... whether it's your smartphone voice memo app or a dedicated recorder like the Tascam DR-40 I use at my school.

4) Notes on what you want to work on
