Picking The Right Instructor-

  It's About Chemistry   For most students, music is about having fun, living your dream, and discovering your music. You'll want to be paired with an instructor that understands where you currently are and can relate to where you want to go. When you begin, you may not even know where you want to go  and that's OK. Your instructor should be able to help you take small steps that help guide you and help you see the picture of what you want to accomplish.   The chemistry between the student and the instructor is really important. There should be a natural respect and friendliness between the two. There are many styles of instruction, so find someone that fits your personal style. Some people learn better with a more disciplined instructor that pushes them. Others learn better with a more laid-back, assertive style. Be honest with what works for you.   A key to good instructors is not only their musical aptitude, but their attitude as well. A good instructor will share in your success and help you through the rough patches. He or she will challenge you to get better while giving you insight, tools, and training on the best way to improve. They are there to help you achieve higher skill levels and maximize your potential while providing constructive feedback that leads to continuous improvement.   Remember, however, that private lessons are a two-way street and the relationship should be mutually beneficial. Instructors will expect you to uphold your end of the bargain by practicing, trying hard, coming to the lessons prepared. They cannot make you great. YOU make yourself great. They are there to encourage and challenge you, but ultimately, your success is going to depend on your own motivation levels and how much you decide to apply yourself.  

A good instructor will generally have these attributes;

  Have positive feedback from other students Have a degree in music, working on a degree, or several years of performing experience Enjoy the style and genre of music you wish to learn Be a good listener Focus more on you, and less about themselves Helps you discover your strengths Help you set high, yet attainable milestones Be clear on what is expected of you each week Hold you accountable for practicing and continued growth Provide you with timely and specific feedback Use technology to help keep track of lessons and monitor your growth Offer the option for you to perform at a recital Help you get excited about learning and staying involved with lessons Be constantly growing themselves-musically and as a teacher   Here at Naperville Music, our educational staff can help you select an instructor who will meet and exceed your expectations. ​Call or Email Today- Your First Lesson Is FREE !
