Teaching Style
Most piano teachers vary from one another somewhat in their instruction methods, so consider a teacher's style before choosing to take from him or her. Teachers may vary in class type -- whether they offer private lessons or group lessons, or they may vary in teaching philosophy -- like the Suzuki method versus a customized method. Consider what learning style and class type you best work in and choose a teacher whose methods align.

Additional Opportunities
Piano lessons are a great way to learn to play. However, many piano teachers offer additional piano-related opportunities for a more well-rounded experience - like social gatherings with students, piano recitals, or field trips to see the Camarada Chamber Music Concerts. Consider whether you simply want to learn to play, or whether you're looking for more from a piano teacher, then choose accordingly.

Music teachers vary from one another in cost, so set a budget and look for a teacher accordingly. Check with teachers you are interested in to ensure there aren't any additional costs associated with taking lessons (e.g. extra books, equipment like metronomes, etc.) Piano lessons should simply enhance your life, not cause any added stress!
