#beginquote# Pete I agree with you and feel the same way. She teaches music to public high school students and has a son who is around 11 I think. Believe it or not, she wants to eventually to teach privately, but if she operates like this, her students will take their music and leave. I've stayed with her over the long haul because she is an excellent teacher, we work well together and her fee is reasonable. I have asked her now and then to set up a schedule and stay with it but it doesn'y last for long. My lesson was changed from this past Sunday to Wednesday 10/3 4:30 - and who knows, so I've just about had it. Thinking of speaking with her yet again at tomorrows lesson but don't know how to speak with her without sounding "my way or the highway" - and finding a good teacher is tricky. About two years ago she just stopped teaching, never found out why. Went to another teacher who sat behind me and never said a thing - for all I know he could have been working the crossword puzzle. His thing was Bartok's Mikrokosmos (couldn't stand those exercises and all the major and minor scales). So guess I'm hesitant to jump in the water again. Julliard has a list of their graduates who teach - Thanks Pete and everyone for your support - good to have friends. #endquote#
