taffnus Posted January 12, 2012 Share Posted January 12, 2012 I have a dd8 who took 4 months of piano lessons last year. She excelled. We stopped due to various reasons and I'm feeling a very strong need to get her back in music lessons. She seems naturally talented and I hate the thought that I didn't offer her the chance to explore that. The problem is, we can't really afford the monthly fees, especially because we have a dd6 who is really wanting to do an activity as well. I have met a teenager who has offered to teach dd for a small fee. I originally said "no" because I was concerned that a more experience teacher would be better. I wouldn't want my dd to learn bad habits from inexperienced (young) instruction. I don't play so I wouldn't know if this girl is good or not. I know that she has a good instructor. So, would it better to have no music instruction or instruction from a teenager? :-) P.S. I'm not against teens teaching. I'm just not sure how to know if it's good for us in this situation.
