We suggest that if you are not a great pianist, you’re probably not a good piano teacher either.
How to teach a piano?
Pianists learn to play music, and pianists love teaching. There are countless hours of music, learning and practice in front of a piano. Many of the best teachers we have spoken with say that they like to start with a low-class piano teacher to teach the piano for two or three months at a time.
