How can I choose ONE TEACHER at a conservatory WITHOUT OFFENDING OTHERS?
I feel so relieved that I finally got accepted to a conservatory I want to go. There are several teachers I am interested to study with. People suggested that I should have a trial lesson with them. But how can I not to offend teachers who I do not choose? After having a lesson and tell her/him "sorry I decided to go to other teacher"? A noted teacher could be a famous violinist and powerful judge at international competitions but not necessarily a good teacher. If I offend that influential teacher it would make my life difficult. I am now afraid how to start this process. But I really want to work with some teacher who is helpful to improve my technique as well as to start my career in the professional music world.
I appreciate it greatly if somebody can suggest a good way to do this.
