Question: What do you do when a student comes to a lesson unprepared?
Every teacher of every instrument has encountered this problem. The first time it occurs in your studio, you are surprised. The second time it occurs (with any luck, not with the same student), you are less surprised and really ready to take charge.
Coming Up: Some of my tuning pins keep slipping. How can I correct this problem?
