Professional Private Guitar Lessons are Better than Cookie-Cutter In-store Guitar Lessons
One of the most important things when selecting a music teacher is selecting the right music teacher. Getting along with your music instructor is one thing, but the quality of the lesson they deliver is equally important – not anyone can arm you with the tools for success in the music world. From my experience, I have found a private teacher is much better than music teachers found at stores such as the Music Exchange. There is more consistency – instructors at stores can be there today and gone tomorrow, leaving you frazzled and confused. Whether you’re looking for a music teacher for yourself or for your child, there are some imperative things to consider in the process. Here are some tips – time to get picky:
- Research their background and qualifications
- Examine their teaching experience
- Ask for references
- Check out their lesson plan
- Agree on policies regarding fees, cancellations, etc.
- Try out their teaching style
- Make sure you are comfortable and get along with the instructor
- Set goals and make sure you instructor helps you reach them
