About Our Teachers
Every student is unique, so it's essential that you find the right teacher for you as an individual. That's why we set out all the key information about all the music teachers in Cardiff and South Wales, allowing you to make an informed choice and feel confident that you will be learning from a skilled educator and musician. South Wales Music Lessons allows you to compare teachers like-for-like, taking into account each tutor's location, syllabus and lesson rates to find the perfect teacher for you.
Whether you're arranging music tuition for yourself or for your child, it is important that you can trust your teacher to deliver an enjoyable and rewarding course of lessons which is structured and coordinated to get the best out of the student. That's why we offer detailed profiles about every teacher, as well as their background, teaching facilities and syllabus.
It's good to talk...
They say a good teacher stays with your for life, but a bad teacher can, too. You should spend some time talking to your tutor before deciding whether they are the right teacher for you personally. Ask them about their own musical background and what it is that they love most about playing and performing. Many teachers offer a free trial lesson, which is a great way to get to know each other without any pressure or obligation.
What makes a good music teacher?
A good music teacher should be inspiring and passionate about music, but it is always important not to mistake a good musician for a good teacher. A good music teacher will be as enthusiastic about your playing as they are about their own, whether you are a professional or a beginner. Your teacher should have a clear idea of what they are going to teach you long before you arrive for each lesson and, while they will adapt their syllabus to suit your interests, you should expect them to cover the fundamentals and stay on track, whatever material you are covering in your lessons.
As you build a working relationship with your new teacher, you should expect them to be friendly, patient and encouraging. They will help you to set and meet achievable goals for each year of your tuition. Most importantly, a good teacher will always put the safety and wellbeing of students first, adhering to the Student and Teacher Protection Code at all times.
