I've never had a private trumpet teacher. I've had a couple of piano teachers. I'm just curious how helpful they really are. I'm a HS senior, and am considering taking lessons, but I never felt like I got anything out of piano lessons, so I'm hessitant. Is there really that much to be gained from private lessons? Can it not be made up for by peer evaluations and private practice time? I just don't want to waste my time and money, and I know theres some private teachers here, so I'd very much like your input. If you would identify yourself as a teacher or not, I'd appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
