    Dependant upon your experience and how you play depends on the answer. Of course none of us here know this. Basically you want someone who can work with you on your weak areas. Whether it be technique, air, tone, style, embouchure, etc.

    One that is passionate about teaching and can convey this passion to you to motivate you to practice.

    The posts above all state the one important truth, practice is a vital part and even the most gifted instructor cannot teach you the art without commitment to practice.
