Dave Reffett, instructor here at The Real School of Music, is being featured with George Lynch on the cover of Gitar Plus Magazine. Congratulations, Dave!
This week, Dave Reffett explains how to choose the right instructor. Ultimately, a music school's goal is to not only teach how to play an instrument but to also inspire.
He says there are three things to consider when picking a teacher:
- Is the teacher qualified?
- Does the teacher’s musical style and influences match up with the student's?
- Is there good chemistry between the teacher and student?
