Just wondering how other adult learners like to learn their theory knowledge? How much info do you like presented per lesson, and what ways of learning it do you prefer?
Personally I find I like to be presented one whole system at a time (eg the pitch system, the rhythm system, the workings of the instrument), so I can understand how all the pieces of each system fit together at once. (Even if I'm not able to apply all that knowledge to my playing quite yet.) I think I also retain the info better when I see my teacher physically demonstrate the aspects he or she is explaining.
The motivation for this question is that soon I will be trying to teach adults, and although I can see that I won't be able to personalise 100% or to change my teaching style all of the time, I'd like to learn different strategies for giving information to adults as opposed to children.
