How to Pick a Teacher

A good teacher should guide you toward your musical goals. Ultimately, he or she should be a good musician, a good teacher and someone you like working with. Budget is often a consideration, but how spot-on the teacher is and how much you practice are often the deciding factors. The bottom line is, are you getting what you want and is it worth the money?

Your lessons should be productive and fun. Lessons are the most fun when your goals are being addressed directly, rather than getting caught up in any personal agenda the teacher might have, which could be good or bad for your progress.

Though brief, here is a workable approach to finding a teacher:

  1. Decide on what you want to do. If you’re not sure, a good teacher could help you figure it out.

  2. Research. Ask friends, check out music stores, go online. Find out what’s available in your part of town, or out of town if you want to try correspondence lessons (very workable, by the way). If you see live music, talk to one of the musicians you like and see if he or she teaches or has a recommendation. Find teachers with potential.

  3. Communicate with prospective teachers and find someone who seems to click. Do they know what they are doing? Do you like their approach? Do you feel good after talking to them? (If you feel worse after talking to them, move on!) Are they interested in your personal goals? Do they communicate with you—or talk at you?
    Pick someone and START! And if that teacher doesn’t work out—find another!

Since there are many approaches to teaching and learning, it could take a handful of lessons to see if things click—or it could take only just one. You’ll know when the time comes.

Welcome to the adventure!
