How to find an instructor that is right for you

Discuss their teaching style with them before scheduling any lessons. Ask for the names and phone numbers of some of their former students and/or try to find other people who have worked with them in the past.

After you have completed your instruction, the PATC Board welcomes your comments about your experiences (both good and bad). Your feedback will help us maintain the integrity and usefulness of this list.
