Hi guys, I have recently interviewed 2 good piano teachers and I am unsure which one to choose, one of them seems to be better in performance technique and has longer teaching experience than the other. But the other one is rather intelligent about proper practice methods and best ways to avoid bad habits etc. From your experiences have you ever switched between teachers and switched back, or had lessons with two teachers at the same time to compare which one is better?

No relevant experience I'm afraid.

I (as a beginner) would chose the one I feel more comfortable with. Definitely. Since they are both professional probably both know quite much and I really wouldn't be able to tell which is better from an interview. Maybe after a month of testing or so, or maybe not even then.

But this might not be as important to others as it is for me, and then again maybe you're a pro and you can actually evaluate them well and look for something specific... maybe giving some more background info would help and others could give some better opinion Smile

If you want to be a great performer go with the first, if you want to make absolutely certain you do everything by the book, go with the second. Razz

I would choose the first however as they will also teach you proper technique because you have to have amazing technique to look really good at performing AND hes more experienced.

The second is bound to be almost as good by the sound of it, or this wouldn't be a close decision you pose to the forum. So, in the end its all about who you are comfortable with as they both sound good. (But SO choose the first if you really want to be a great performer ) Wink
