private lessons

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by Youngspanion, Mar 21, 2005.

  1. I took private lessons from a music store with some teachers that taught in the stores tiny back rooms for 2 years. I paid 65$ per month wich guarenteed 4 half hour lessons, one per week with a 5th week (Free) if the month had it. Now I'm looking around for a new teacher. How much should I expect to pay and for how much instructional time? How do I know if I really can't use lessons any more?

  2. $65 for 2 hours is a good deal if you had a teacher who knew what they where doing. The going rate, depending on location of course, is anywhere from 20-70 an hour. Shop around, find the best, and settle for nothing short of exceptional.
