Finding a good, reliable, committed music tutor can be challenging in such an unregulated industry.

Music tutors range from bedroom musos that rock up late, stink of grog from the night before, taught themselves with bad technique, have no idea of structure, don’t have a program, shirtless, shoeless, “awesome dude, I can get $20 bucks cash for chilling out with a kid and jamming” types; to exceptional musicians with poor communication skills; to professional, educated, dedicated, talented, experienced, caring, qualified tutors; with a wide variety in between.

Like every relationship, you don’t really know how it will pan out until the honeymoon period is well and truly over, but there are some good places to look as well as a few questions that can weed out the amateurs from the pros.
