Best advice for aquiring a music teacher would be:
1. Have a Greet and Meet in their music studio.
2, Ask for qualifications.
3. Ask lots of questions.
4. Ask for references from other students.
5. Ask what music association - guilds - unions ect. which they are associated. Past or Present.
6. Ask about the studio policies.
7. Also, ask about the purchase of your instrument.
Is the teacher interested in each individual?
Are the lessons in line with the needs of the student?
How long has the teacher been teaching?
Does the studio policy allow for MAKE - UPs?
