TakeLessons, the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, shares a list of helpful questions for students in their quest for the perfect music teacher match.
Online PR News – 13-January-2012 – – Pop music reigned at Wednesday night’s People's Choice Awards, with Katy Perry, Demi Lovato and Maroon 5 earning the top music-related awards as voted by fans. We’re not surprised, seeing as Katy Perry recently tied Michael Jackson for having the most #1 singles from one album.
For those hoping to become the next Katy, or simply earn first chair position in orchestra, it takes hard work, dedication and a commitment to practicing to get there. But many beginner musicians who learn on their own end up adopting bad habits from the start. It may take the expertise of a professional music teacher to help correct those habits.
Music lessons are a very personal experience, and finding the best teacher is often half the battle. TakeLessons (http://takelessons.com), the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, took the opportunity to share a list of helpful questions for new students to consider when searching for that perfect teacher.
The following is an excerpt from the list:
"- Does the teacher have credentials to teach?
- Are there any videos of the teacher performing or teaching that you can watch to get an idea of their style in teaching or performing?
- What level does this teacher teach up to? (Beginning – Advanced)
- Does this teacher work best with adults or children?
- Is this teacher connected to a reputable affiliation?
- How many years of experience does he/she have playing? Teaching?
- Does the teacher have group lessons and individual lessons available?
- Is there any type of Money Back Guarantee if it isn’t a perfect fit?"
