Kids (elementary to Jr. High) tend to learn quickly and absorb new knowledge easily. They adapt easily to a structured approach with milestones in learning chords, songs, and techniques. They have more time to practice. Therefore it is best to arrange a weekly schedule for the first 3 months.
I've had many dedicated students get "hooked" on guitar after a few months and end up practicing for hours everyday because they enjoy it so much.
Adults sometimes have had previous experience in playing the guitar. In these cases we agree upon a study plan that builds upon existing knowledge to strengthen music fundamentals, and gain confidence in learning songs and new concepts.
People in this group often want to learn more advanced concepts and song arrangements. I have had many adult students tell me they have made breakthroughs simply because they had someone they could relate to and who could demonstrate things that always had always been confusing to them.
Seniors are often looking at way to re-start their playing as a life enrichment to retirement or as a therapeutic way to enjoy their free time and perform with friends. For many older adults learning or "re-starting" the guitar where they left off is the fulfillment of a a long time desire. After a lifetime of work it's time to be a kid again doing what you've always loved. Imagine learning to play songs by The Eagles, James Taylor, Eric Clapton, Simon & Garfunkle, and hundreds more.
