Finding a Music Teacher

Once you've found a music teacher through the RCM National Music Teacher Directory database, consider a trial lesson so you and your child can get to know this very important person in your child's music education.  Here are the Top 10 questions to ask them:

  1. How many years have you been teaching?
  2. Where do you provide lessons – your home, a studio, or in your student’s home?
  3. How many students do you teach, and at what levels?
  4. What kind of instrument(s) do you provide?
  5. Are you a RCM Certified Teacher?
  6. Do you teach private lessons, group lessons or both?
  7. Do you include the study of theory in the yearly lesson plan?
  8. Do you encourage parents to observe lessons or participate in practice sessions?
  9. What types of short- and long-term goals do you set for your students?
  10. Do you encourage your students to prepare for festivals and/or RCM exams?

Inclusion in the Directory does not constitute an endorsement of specific teachers. Students should consider their needs carefully in selecting the teacher who is right for them.
