Hi Guys - 

I am wondering how you all teach reading music to young guitar students (age 5 and under). Guitar is a challenging instruments, and teaching to read notes on top of that can be overwhelming for young students. 

I tend to teach reading without an instruments first.. Once they can read one octave (G to G), I ask them to play with an instrument. 

I'm curious how you guys teach.
