The most essential thing is a natural fit between your child and the teacher. Set up a meeting between your child and a prospective music teacher. Don’t do all the talking. Let your child speak for herself.
Look for simple things. Does this teacher
- Make eye contact with your child?
- Seem genuinely interested in what your child says?
- Draw your child out?
- Have a sense of humor?
Humor is invaluable in dealing with children. It’s better for your child to have a lesson that includes laughter. After all, your child is a child.
Ask your child these questions:
- How did you feel when you were working with her?
- Was there anything she did that made you uncomfortable or confused?
- Would you like to see her again?
Some Music teachers in Dubai, especially the younger ones, may not have much experience. Ironically, it’s the teachers just getting started who often have the least experience teaching beginners. Keep an open mind about them, though. A young, enthusiastic teacher who’s willing to invest wholeheartedly in your child may be your best choice. Nothing is better than an experienced teacher, but nothing is worse than a teacher who is also rigid, exhausted, bored, or burned out.
One effective way to find out about a Music teacher in Dubai is to attend a recital by her students. Whenever possible, Melodica invites prospective parents and students to come and hear our students play.
