Find a Music Teacher

How to find the right music tuition for you

Music tuition is usually available through school, or your Local Education Authority's Music Services.  However you may prefer to find your child private music tuition.  Choosing the right music tuition can be a hard task if you have no pointers or no musical experience yourself.  There is currently no law in the UK regulating private music teachers; anyone can set up as one. 

How to choose the right teacher for your child:
• Ask other parents if their children have music tuition; but remember all children are different
• Local music shops or libraries are good sources of information and advice
• The Incorporated Society of Musicians has a register of teachers with a recognised professional qualification, a reference and teaching experience
• Check how long they have been teaching
• Ask to have a 'one-off' taster or consultation lesson to see how your child gets on
• Is singing or movement part of the lesson? This can help with younger children.  How much fun do the pupils have?
• Do they belong to a recognised body?
• Be sensibly alert to child protection issues

For older children the following considerations should be taken into account:
• What is the teacher's view about entering pupils for examinations, competitions or festivals?
• Are pupils encouraged to compose their own music?
• Do they provide advice on practising?
• Do they introduce their pupils to a different range of musical styles?
• Once the pupil has mastered the basic techniques of each style how far can they choose what kind of music to play?
• How do they keep the parent informed about the child's progress? A weekly report or more informal feedback?
• Does the teacher play with the child?
• What is the teacher's view on the teaching of notation and music theory?
