SELECTING THE RIGHT TEACHER

What should I consider when looking for a music teacher?

 

  • Musical education - Has the teacher successfully completed certification in their area of musical expertise?

  • Level of experience - Have they taught students at your level?

  • Personality - Do you (and/or your child) get along with the teacher?

  • Studio atmosphere - Is the teacher's studio neat and inviting?  Free of distractions?

  • Type of program offered - Does the teacher provide instruction in the style of music you're interested in?  Do they offer preparation for exams, festivals, and recitals? What are their expectations for practicing?
