I Started playing piano when I was 7 years old. By my Jr. year of High School I new I wanted to be a Music Teacher and so I began teaching Private piano lessons. I continued teaching through college and after as well.
I primarily work with young children, although I have some young adult students. I prefer beginner students.
Of late I have been taking my grandaughter to her Violin lesson. In doing so I have found that I miss teaching.
Make sure the teacher has a love of children and music.
Do they have a love of music?
Are they willing to put in the time to practice.
How much practice time is the teacher expection them to do.?
