When you are searching for the best piano lessons for your child, it can be easy to think that the best teacher will be the one who has played around the world and with many famous orchestras! Not so! The best teacher is the one who fits your child’s personality , at least at this stage in their learning.
Always try and meet the teacher before signing up for lessons, that way you can see if the relationship is a good fit. Look at the communication, does the teacher look your child in the eye? Are they genuinely interested in what they say? Do they seem like they might be able to share a joke as well as take learning seriously?
Don’t rule out a new piano teacher just because you think they may have less experience than others. It is far better to have an enthusiastic and engaged new teacher, than a teacher who is completely stuck in their ways and offers rigid and “boring” lessons.
Why not attend a recital? Good teachers hold these often to give their students a chance to perform. Go along and ask other parents what their opinions are! Then you could ask to have a few trial lessons.
Check out when the teacher holds most of her sessions! Depending on the age of your child you need to think about when they will be at their most receptive! If your child is younger, then fitting in a music lesson at the end of the day might be a little to much for them.
