What do I need to consider when choosing an instructor?

Popular classes are Piano, Violin, and Drums and teachers provide lessons for all of those around Plano Texas. Many kids start (including mine who have been learning Guitar and Piano) from a young age and have been consistently practicing and learning for months and years.

Research shows there is also a link between learning to play an instrument and the development of parts of the brain for kids too!

There are a number of options for you to look at when choosing a teacher. Meet them and learn about their personality, experience, approach, and qualifications.

Our Top Tips for choosing the best School or Teacher

We tend to ask our friends and other parents for the teachers that they use and like for private lessons!

Learn as much as you can about their teaching style and make sure it works with your child and how thye want to learn music.

Spot the signs if it appears that a child isn’t ready to learn to play an instrument, or to play music, or if learning to play an instrument becomes a chore for parents who have to repeatedly encourage their child to practice.

There should be some type of “love for learning the instrument” before you put any time or financial investment into it.

Before you book any Plano music lessons near me, check their fees to ensure they are within your budget.

Check if they need their own instrument at home and how much practice they expect between lessons.

We often hear from local parents that they are looking for a teacher who will come and teach in their home. If you have the instrument at home, that can work well if they have the flexibility to travel to you. You should definitely ask!

However in some cases, like teachers who provide piano lessons, we have found based on our research, that many teachers prefer to teach using their own piano at their home or at a venue they choose, as they can trust that the Piano is fully tuned and serviced so the notes sound the way they should.

If you are a Mom of a new drummer, you may want to go to another venue for drum lessons, purely to avoid the noise in your own home!

One of the benefits of receiving a music education from a young age is that even having some music theory really switches on parts of the brain that are more receptive to understanding math concepts, so it’s a win-win all round.
