A friend and piano teacher colleague of mine, Marie Harris from Utah was recently featured on KSL, a local news station. She talked about what to look for in a music teacher.
I wanted to share the link with everyone as she gives a lot of good tips to help lead parents in a positive direction.
She discusses the importance of instilling a ‘love’ of music throughout a child’s music curriculum, how to seek good teachers, the parents role before making a commitment (so important!), communication, questions for parents to ask and how participating in ongoing professional development for the teacher is important.
Here is the link to the video clip:
