Private music lessons – whether for piano, voice, strings, or band instruments are a great way to expose your child to music and ensure that they get one-on-one help. Students that study privately not only progress faster on their chosen instrument(s), but the skills and discipline required for music also improves academic and athletic performance.
Finding a Music Teacher in Kentucky
Finding a qualified and reputable music teacher can be a challenge, however.
There are lots of people offering piano and voice lessons who have little to no formal music training and can barely perform beginner pieces! Additionally, teachers should be able to teach correct technique (whether hand position, breathing, bowing, etc.), useful practice strategies, and demonstrate style for different compositional styles (Classical, Romantic, etc.).
If your teacher is unable (or unwilling) to teach all of these concepts, then you need to look for a different music teacher!
All the music teachers listed below are KMTA members and are dedicated to delivering quality and professional music education to all Kentuckians. You can read more about KMTA’s mission here. These teachers provide music lessons on a wide variety of instruments and can be found all over Kentucky.
