"Should I be concerned about getting an older teacher for my son to start lessons with? Does that suggest they have more experience?"
Anna, Orlando, FL
Thanks for the question Anna! Age has little to nothing to do with knowledge and appropriate teaching experience. If you want to make sure you are getting a proper educator make sure you are using a music company that only hires professionals with a minimum of a bachelor's degree. Someone could have been "teaching" for many years but without the proper background may not have the pedagogy to help children and adults start out with the correct support to allow them to thrive in the future.
Keep asking questions!
