comment Steel-string parlor guitar - effect on tuning stability when changing string gauge?
A good service will include lots of things - clean, fix any worn frets, (search online, lots of guitar techs describe in detail what they do) but what's important to you here is checking the machine heads (repair or replace) and getting the truss rod adjusted right (which is the only way intonation can be influenced in the absence of an adjustable bridge).

Tensioning: tune, then put your fingers underneath each string and give it a good tug away from the body. It will go flat. Retune and repeat until it doesn't go flat.

comment Is it possible for a left hander to learn guitar right handed?
What do you mean by "crossing fingers"? It seems to me that playing the mirror image of a F/Fm/B/Bm are all easy enough shapes to achieve.

comment How do I connect my bass to my Macbook pro for effects processing?
music.stackexchange.com/questions/2032/… then? music.stackexchange.com/questions/11167/… -- but it seems to me the first answer in the dupe tells you what you need -- a USB audio interface.

comment Howto: Electric Bass Guitar - Home Recording
cheapest option I know of, the Griffin iMic. No frills, but does an OK job of being a USB audio input for computers that don't already have one.

comment How do I connect my bass to my Macbook pro for effects processing?
Welcome to music.se. Please search the site for existing answers before posting questions. This question has been answered several times. It's worth noting, there's nothing about a bass that makes the answer different than for an electric guitar. Nor is there much difference between a PC and a Mac in this respect.

comment How to teach music
All 10 kids at once, or one at a time? How many hours a day will you have with them? What previous musical experience do they have? What style of music do you have in mind? What previous musical experience do you have? Are you talking about solo performances or group performances? Will there be a concert at the end?
