I have DS 10 and DD 6 who will be starting piano lessons. We met with 2 teachers today and are trying to decide which one to go with. Teacher A is in late 20s, relaxed (less strict), charges $3 less than Teacher B, lesson will take place at a church. Teacher B is in late 50s, more experienced, also teaches voice lessons, strict, lesson will be at her house.
During the meeting with teacher A, we mostly talked, she watched my ds play piano a little bit.
During the meet with teacher B, she actually taught and went over the book my ds had for maybe 5 minutes. My ds seem to like teacher B but dd likes teacher A (because she is relaxed and young).
Teacher A will use books by Faber, teacher B will use Bastien books in addition to Alfred books we have.
Does it matter with the age of the teacher? I feel like more experienced teacher will be great but then I don't want too strict teacher either.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
