Eleanor is great teacher! That says it all.So happy I found her😀
I like to talk to the student about any prior experience with music. I always ask why they decided to take piano lessons. I think it's important to understand why they want to play the piano so I can best match my teaching style & choose materials that will best suit them.
20+ years of private & group piano teaching.
$30.00 per 30 minute lesson

After I graduated college I went to work for Baldwin Piano & Organ company selling pianos & teaching group piano & organ classes. It was so much fun I eventually opened my own piano studio.
I teach students from 6-86 that are looking to enjoy playing the piano.
I added a few Summer Workshops this year that were 100% online. My students loved it! We played music games, explored famous composers & I had some high school students do presentations on popular music composers. We even did a segment on cartoons & commercials with classical music. Everyone loved it so much we are adding them into the Academic year.
Take time to talk to the teacher. You have to like your teacher. A piano teacher should be someone that has fun, is energetic, and has a personality that encourages learning. A good teacher should combine solid piano theory & technic with fun!
The biggest question you should ask yourself is do you & the student have time to take lessons & practice everyday. The most successful students are those where the parents are involved in daily practice. In the beginning it's helping students practice but as years pass parents are needed to encourage & praise their accomplishments. Piano lessons are a big time commitment but worth every minute.
