    Not many teachers can say that they are an active teacher and performer; fewer of those can say that they maintain their own private studio at the end of their public school day. That being said, I think what really separates me as a teacher is not my many hours of teaching, but rather my dedication to my students. I teach outside of my public school job because I feel that music can be a powerful and underrepresented force in a student's public school education. I strive to help students realize musical concepts in ways that inform both their musicianship, and their concept of learning.

Four Things to Consider When Choosing a Piano Teacher in Philadelphia


Taking piano lessons is a great way to learn an instrument and develop your musical skills. Individualized piano teachers can help students ensure that they're on the right track to success, and they can answer any questions students have along the way. However, there are countless piano teachers in Philadelphia on Lessons.com, so how does a student know just which instructor to pick? If you are looking for piano lessons or classes in Philadelphia, check out the list below. It contains four important considerations to help you narrow down the selection of piano teachers and select the instructor that is just right for you.

Location
You might be excited to take piano lessons when you sign up, but incorporating them into your daily schedule week after week may start to feel difficult. So, in order to ensure the utmost convenience for yourself, pick a teacher in an area in Philadelphia that's easy for you to access. You don't want to sign up for lessons in Fishtown if you live in South Philly.

Teaching Style
Piano instructors often vary from one another by their teaching style. Many teachers like private lessons, while others teach in groups. Some piano teachers follow schools like the Suzuki method, while others approach teaching from their own personal philosophy. Think about what kind of lesson experience you want, as well as what type of learning style best suits you, then seek out a teacher that offers lessons or classes that meets those needs.

Commitment Requirements
Learning piano is tough, and it can require a lot of time and effort outside of the time you spend with your teacher. Many instructors also have rigid guidelines about what they expect out of their students. Think about how much time and energy you will realistically have to give to piano, and choose a teacher whose requirements you know you can meet. It's not fair to you or the teacher if you are not able to practice or give as much as he or she asks.

Additional Opportunities
Piano lessons and classes are great for learning, but some teachers offer additional opportunities, including piano recitals, outings and social events. Consider if you're simply interested in learning to play or whether you want more from your piano experience, then select a teacher that offers those things.
