Saturday Sessions: Del Suggs on teaching music, part 2

Del Suggs makes saltwater music, a folk infused style of work that’s taken him across the college circuit in the US, gained him airplay in Europe and Australia, and drawn comparisons wit. Jimmy Buffet and James Taylor. He’s also a respected teacher of both music related skills and leadership topics. Here’s what he had to say about what he learns from teaching.

“It's amazing how teaching a topic really opens your eyes to the content-- ideas that you skimmed before now jump out you! While it may be a truism, it's still accurate: the best way to learn something is to teach it.

Teaching is full of "a-ha" moments, when you see the light come on in a student's eyes and you know you've just connected them with the subject. It's really magical when it happens.”
