There is a wide range for private teachers that is often, but not always, determined by their experience. Other considerations might include whether they make house calls. We can even help find you a Mentor from SAMOHI who can provide free private lessons for current Elemental Strings and Elemental Band students.
It is important to select a teacher that actually plays the instrument! Often, it is also helpful to find a private teacher who is well-connected to the school district. They will know what opportunities might be coming up, and have a good relationship with your child's music teachers at school.
Chemistry between teacher and student
Not every teacher will be a good fit. Some teachers are more nurturing, others more demanding. Some focus on technique and fundamentals, others on having fun playing music. Some focus more on classical style, others on pop music. There isn't one right answer, but it is important to consider what YOU are looking for in a teacher.
