Class is in Session: Finding the Right Music Teacher

Sooner or later, and no matter where you are in your musical journey, we all could use some guidance.

Last week, Luke kicked off the breakdown of Muze’s “10 People Musicians Need on Their Side” series by helping you learn what to look for when shopping for the right producer. But, before you can even get into the studio… you have to know how to perform!

So, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, I decided to ask a couple of teachers how it’s done!

Erin McLendon and Caitie Thompson are performing artists and the co-founders of Music on the Move Studios. Based in Nashville, Music on the Move is a female-owned business which helps artists grow their careers through educational and performance opportunities. Those opportunities include private and DIY lessons – Erin teaches voice, while Caitie instructs students on a variety of instruments.

I sat down with Erin and Caitie to learn more about the role of a voice or instrument teacher. In the process, they helped dispel common myths, while showing the correlation between learning proper technique and building confidence.
