Some of you may have noticed that the aspiring instructors forum has been renamed to "Student Instructors" - this is because we want to kick this whole part of the forum into high gear!

So accordingly, I'd like to instroduce our new Student Instructor Coordinator - none other than our good friend:

SMELLS

Chris has been doing an awesome with the Virtual Band section, so we thought he would be great to help get things moving here too.

So what is it? Well a student instructor in GMC terms is two things -

- A student who is writing lessons for other students
- A someone who is learning to be a GMC instructor

Both are very relevant here - we want to give students a chance to share their knowledge with other GMCers, and to earn the rank of "Student Instructor". In addition, Kris will be watching this board very carefully, and if standards are high enough, the very best stand a chance of becoming GMC instructors - we want to grow our own talent smile.gif The old title didn't really refelct this new philosophy, so we have had a rename and a relaunch to get things moving.

We will be accepting all types of entries, from written through audio only to full video. The emphasis is on quality no matter what the medium, and our student instructors will have an honoured status at GMC - as is always the case, we believe that outstanding contributers should be recognised for their hard work, and what better way to contribute than to help teach other students?

So, if you have a killer lick, or have recently mastered a hard technique, why not make a leeson out of it and post it as a lesson for others to learn?

As we aim to keep the standards high, we will be building a whole Wiki page out of this section, and we will highight the coolest lessons, and individual instructors - there will even be a slot or link for this on the front page - GMC will be putting its best foot forward, with our student instructors leading the way!

Thanks for taking this on Smells, and I'm looking forward to seeing some awesome lessons roll in!

what??? .... I never agreed to this?? laugh.gif joking of course! laugh.gif

Truly honoured to take up this exciting challenge, this is going to be an awesome oppotunity for us to share knowledge to the rest of the community! and hey ... who knows with some hard work and effort ..possibly a home grown instructor plucked from one of you .. wow! how cool!!

New guidelines will replace the exsisting ones we have on the board at the moment, I will be posting them soon after this smile.gif Have a good read as this is going to determine the level thats expected.

As soon as its possible (hopefully the next week or so, time allowing) I`ll post a lesson (or two) I`ve been working on lately to help get things underway biggrin.gif

I cant wait to start seeing some of the lessons come through, the standard is going to be high!, this is an oppotunity to really stand out and show us the cool things you have learnt and can teach us, so go get your cameras, fire up your recording gear, and lets see them lessons! biggrin.gif

Also, I`d just like to thank Kris & Andrew for the support and encouragment they continue to give me, thanks guys smile.gif

Edit: and of course all the instructors & members that have shown their support also, you guys truly ROCK!! thanks biggrin.gif
