All Melodica teachers have university music education and performance level mastery of their instruments. A strong grounding in music theory, teaching methods, and large repertoire of teaching material is required of all teachers.
Before recruiting a teacher, we assets teachers on their reliability, references from colleagues and students, annual thorough background checks, as well as their inter-personal skills.
To match students with the right teacher we keep a complete record of strengths and specialties of each teacher. Techniques, genres, pace of teaching, age groups of students, and experience level of students, are among the factor we document and consider about each teacher.
