Choose a Teacher

You’ve chosen your instrument, and the genre (kind of music). Now what? How do I FIND A MUSIC TEACHER? You’re in the right place.

A good teacher is worth their weight in gold. They will help you to discover if your choices are right for you.

7  THINGS to do, ask, consider:

  1. Talk by phone. Ask their level of training and experience.
  2. Ask them their expectations, and tell them yours.
  3. Ask for references. Two is good.
  4. Ask for their cancellation policy.
  5. Ask for their payment policy.
  6. Ask about guests sitting in on lessons on occasion. (FYI: Most will allow it occasionally, but probably won’t encourage it on a regular basis, as it’s distracting for the student.)
  7. Meet ’n Greet, and trust your instincts. If it’s not a good fit, then move on to the next one.

SOME adults choose to self study in the beginning, but we feel the benefits of one-on-one training far outweighs any expense. Getting a great groundwork for learning is the MOST important thing, prior to any self study program. Learning on the web IS an option, especially once the groundwork has already been laid.
