As stated in another thread, I'm going in for my second lesson tonight. I'm pretty happy with the guy that's teaching me; he's about my age, seems genuinely enthusiastic about his job and gigs professionaly as well as teaches. At this point in time, I have no buyers remorse for signing up with the first guy I came across.
I live in a town that has two music stores, so more potential instructors. We also have a private university in town that has a really good music program. My thinking is that perhaps I shouldn't limit myself to one instructor. Maybe I should switch it up every few months to keep the enthusiasm level high and avail myself to different methods. It certainly can't hurt, I think and a person can never have too many connections.
I'm not sure, though, that this is a good thing from the instructor's point of view. Like I said, I'm happy enough with my current instructor so far. I know a lot of you teach, so I'd appreciate your council. Do students work with you for a couple months, then take a break, or do they sign on for the long haul?
Thanks in advance,
