Over Irene S. M.
1) During my first lesson I usually spend some time talking. I like to know what is the student's connection to music, what does he/she like to listen to as well as his/her interest in learning music theory, reading and improvisation.
This way I can adapt to their needs accordingly.
After that I bring a short song/piece. Ideally I already know the level of the student in general terms, but if I do not know this I choose a song which is easy enough for a beginner, but which can also be the starting point for more advanced music making if the student finds it easy.
Usually this song/piece brings up key topics about the technique of my instrument/voice, for example: how does breathing work, what is the range of the student, how to articulate on the recorder etc. I finish the lesson with a suggested homework for the week, I choose something from what we learned in the lesson that takes just 5 minutes a day practice.
2) In order to motivate the students to practice regularly I explain that learning an instrument or developing ones voice is like sports: regular practice, even if it is very short, makes us progress much faster that long practice once in a while. I also design the homework in a way that it balances new material which can encourage self-exploration and already mastered material.
This way the student can enter a certain flow in their daily practice. I try to ensure that the homework is an active an inspiring part of the next lesson, so that they experience the benefits of practicing.
