Re: Becoming a music teacher posted by Last Minute Musicians posted by Last Minute Musicians
Although I run an online video course called Learn Jazz Piano Online, I have to say that there is no substitute for a real teacher in the room with you. When I work with my students we use two pianos, and I'm giving them the experience of playing along with another musician.
As far as qualifications, because I teach jazz, there is no formal qualification necessary although it does help that I've been working as a pro keyboard player for over 40 years.
Similarly, I worked on many musicals as a Musical Director but there was no course to prepare me. Nobody showed me how to do it. I had to learn for myself.
Lastly, and this may sound obvious, but to be a music teacher you have to love teaching. It should never be something you do because you're not playing. There are many wonderful musicians out there that make terrible teachers!
