Finding the Right Piano Teacher

Aug 19, 2008
Finding a well qualified piano teach for yourself or your child is very important. The prospect of learning a new skill is exciting. Yet it can become a nightmare if you aren't learning from the right individual. Even if the piano teacher is a great player, they may not be able to teach people to do the same.

If you respond to an advertisement for a piano teacher you want to find out all you can about them. Schedule a face to face interview where both of you can ask questions. Find out how long they have been playing the piano. Ask about why they are providing lessons. You want to be sure they love the music and people rather than just looking for a source to generate income.

Ask what their teaching style is as well. They should have a full curriculum in place before they start advertising. It is important to realize that not every piano teacher will use the same methods. Therefore you want to find one that uses concepts that the student will learn well from.

If possible take a look at where the piano lessons will take place. You want the student to be comfortable. Sometimes it will even be in your own home which has benefits. It allows the student to learn and to practice on their own piano in the home. Yet not everyone has one yet and that makes sense. You may want to wait until you see if your child sticks with the lessons before you invest in such costly equipment.

Ask about how many students the piano teacher already has. This is important because you want to be sure they have enough time to commit to more. Discuss the length of each lesson and the cost. These are important issues because you want to be sure you are getting your money's worth from it. Some piano teachers won't accept late students as it can create problems with staying on schedule. Find out what rules they have in place and then decide if you are willing abide by them.

A good piano teacher will have no trouble providing your with references either. This can be other students that have been very happy with what they learned. If the piano teacher is new then ask for personal references. Those will be individuals that can provide you with information about the abilities of the teacher. References are a great way to find out more about a prospective piano teach so don't skip this important piece of your search.

It can take time to find the right piano teacher. Yet doing so will help ensure the student learns as much as possible. The learning process needs to be one that motivates them to continue moving forward. The desire to learn to play piano simply isn't enough on its own. There are some amazing piano teachers out there willing to share their knowledge. They are passionate about their teaching and it shows in all they do with each student.
