    Hey, Thinking of changing my piano teacher, does anyone know how to find the BEST possible piano teacher. Someone told me to look on London College Music as they have a list of the best teachers, I looked and could not find it! Also What qualities do you guys think make the best piano teacher?

    I don't think it's really about the teacher, I went to a teach that had quite a good reputation but I didn't really like her, but I like my current teacher and I get along really well with her so I learn a lot faster and better now

    In terms of qualities I'd say inspiration is key - someone who makes you want to practice and want to get better. By 'London College Music' do you mean the University of West London or the RCM or RAM?

    To actually find a good teacher you have to ask around - build up some contacts. All instrumental teachers know each other and can point you to some good ones

    I'd say the only way you would know if they really are what they say is to have a taster lesson first. Its what I did for around five times till I found the teacher I liked!
    The way you know is when they tell you everything your doing wrong! I mean seriously you might think they're a bit harsh but the best teachers are honest and are telling you from experience! I had learnt how to play Claire de lune and could play the right notes but she introduced me in depth the other details I had been missing out! So if it is a wishy washy teacher, You'll get to know to play the notes but not the style I guess..
