I LOVE teaching ADULTS piano. They usually are capable of understanding the math behind the music. I'm not a good fit to teach children, but thanks for your interest.
You are probably one of the most inspiring and driven mentors i've had the pleasure to learn from. Even if it was only for one and a half hours. I will make use of the piano at home, and continue to excel. I promise to keep you updated on my progress.
FIRST, I have to determine what kind of learner they are...whether they are visual, auditory, or physical learners because that helps them to learn how to play comfortably.
I taught myself...and it just isn't normally done that way so I've been told by a few famous pianists like Andre Previn and Alexander Toradze, to name a few.
I charge $60/lesson. My lessons normally take about an hour or so, but I'm not a clock watcher.
It's simply my true passion in life...not in it for the money!
I've taught mostly adults because I've found that most children don't have the attention span needed to learn classical music. They should be out playing with their friends anyway!
Find someone who KNOWS music and is passionate about it...without passion, you're souless.
Hmm...well how about the questions they should NOT ask their teachers like, "How long will it take to learn this piece?" or "How long should I practice?" Everyone learns differently and you're not a robot.
