  • Friendly, amiable, well-versed in theory
  • Prioritizes his own time, not yours

Had been taking lessons here for a few years, mostly to learn music theory. By all means the teacher is a fine player and knows theory inside out. But it's one thing to improvise, quite another to teach the subject. I don't get the impression he has a prepared lesson plan when he does arrive at the normally scheduled time.

Every week I'm expected to respond to emails from this guy, asking me if I can come in at a different time, because he had a no show or a cancellation. Pretty obnoxious, right? And I've since given up on asking questions of my teacher via email. His time is way more valuable than mine, I guess.
