    I think some people actually teach to make a living for themselves. I assume it's not your full time job.

    Hollingworth is also spelt wrong in your signature! :wink:

    sorry if i offended anyone

    i know a little about music and all i want to do is give something back to those in the community who help me turn from being a Manchester scally to an Adult with family Morales if there is anyone who would want my services i wouldn't charge

    I have had peers such as Kevin Ackford and BM Gordon Kirsopp teach me and without their help and guidance my life would have gone a different way

    I wasn't having a go, but it seemed like you were slagging off people who charge people to teach them. Great if you don't charge people, but I know a lot of people who make their living from instrument teaching and it doesn't mean they want to make a "name" for themselves because people pay them.

    Agreed, I teach to suppliment my income so I can put petrol in my car to get to band. I don't want to make a name for myself and in actual fact I really enjoy teaching the odd student that's interested. Makes a difference from school sometimes!

    You really need to think before you post. I don't how others feel but you're startingto give me a really bad impression of both yourself and your band. You are not the only person on this forum who teaches kids for free and who's band has turned around in the space of 18 months because you have a good conductor but you are the only one insulting other people from the dizzy heights of your soapbox. GROW UP!!!
