Am I too young to teach lessons?
Date: December 28, 2014
I am a freshman vocal performance major at a university in Nebraska. I have taken private voice lessons since the age of nine (yes I know, a tad too young of a start), and I have classical and contemporary performance experience. I have an understanding of vocal technique that I have built upon for many years now, and my friends and family are urging me to teach lessons to kids in my area.
However, I would love some input on if I'm qualified for this or not. I would only teach a few kids (5-10) at a beginner level. I would be honest about my inexperience teaching, but my experience in regards to performance/song writing/recording/technique.
Essentially, my question is this - despite any experience I have, is 18-years-old too young to begin teaching private voice lessons?
