This is my first post :)
Basically, I'm a high school senior applying to music conservatories for violin performance this fall, and I just scheduled a trial lesson with a highly respected teacher at a competitive school.
I've never had this type of lesson before, and I have a few questions:
1. What would such a teacher expect from me in terms of preparation?
2. How should I prepare/ what things should I put on my checklist to make sure I'm not showing up and embarrassing myself?
3. Are there any specific things I should or shouldn't say/do that aren't obvious no-no's?
4. Are there any particular questions I should be sure to ask?
Any answers or general tips would be appreciated. I'm not experienced with these type of lessons, but I really want to leave a good and professional impression.
