A criticism of free and subsidized private music lesson programs

Posted on: August 17, 2013

  1. It discourages students and parents to find any way possible to afford lessons with a good teacher. Almost no really good teacher will teach such a student, unless the student contacts them directly.
  2. It devalues the teachers both inside and outside the program
  3. It takes away potential students, especially on instruments there are few students interested in taking lessons
  4. The best teachers will not work for free or low fees
  5. It discourages people from asking questions to the teacher
