I have been taking lessons from Benjamin since the last one year. He helps you grow in the area that you are comfortable and interested in while introducing you to other important areas where you are lacking. He has exposure to different classical composers and can guide you with pieces by Bach, Mozart, Chopin, etc.
I start with scales, move onto Hanon, then pieces. I try to get the student playing pieces asap, no matter how small!

Look for the patient teachers, they are the best.
Level of ability aND how they'd like to set about practicing the piano.
