What to look for in a piano teacher…

Personality
Find the right person

Your child will spend one-on-one time with this person for weeks, months and possibly years so make sure you find a teacher you like! Nothing is better than an experienced teacher, but nothing is worse than a teacher who is rigid. Find someone who is encouraging and funny; humor is valuable with kids. A piano teacher may become a role model and someone who is there during their teenage years as a confidant so make sure your child likes the teacher.

Experience
Have guaranteed results

Not all music instructors are experienced performers with a music degree but every teacher should at least have some level of experience. Ask about their musical background and keep in mind that a great performer may not have the qualities and social skills that make a great teacher. Someone who is patient, good with kids and can teach clearly will go a long way! A good sign is an organized teacher with a studio policy that includes information about payments, supplies and cancellations.

Convenience
Make sure it works for you

How far are you willing to drive for lessons? Factor in rush hour traffic, driving distance and gas. A music school might seem ideal at first glance but I recommend a teacher who comes to your house. Traveling teachers are very convenient since they save much of your time but they are rare to find and usually have a waiting list. Be prepared for a specific schedule as traveling teacher’s factor in driving time, traffic and parking. Expect to pay a premium for this service.

In Home Lessons

The best environment for learning

   The only advantage that a music school can offer is low-cost lessons. Low-cost means low-quality instruction which can cause you to progress slower and leave you frustrated.

   On the other hand, with piano lessons in your home, you will save time, gas money, and hassle! Also, the best way to master the piano is to learn on the same instrument you practice with. Learning on a teacher’s piano instead of your own can make lessons confusing, especially for beginners. Additionally, a great benefit of in-home lessons is that the student is already warmed up after the lesson providing momentum to begin practicing immediately. Practice leads to great results. Results mean money well spent!
