For the people who have studied with these teachers or know people who study with them... Who do you think is the best teacher among these three: Cyrus Forough, Almita Vamos, or Desiree Ruhstrat? Why? Which one's most demanding or gives out harshest criticism?
I know that the Vamoses teach at the Music Institute of Chicago. Do you know any ways to contact either Forough or Ruhstrat?
I am thinking about auditioning for one of these teachers. Do you have any idea what they would typically ask you to play in an audition? scales, concertos, etudes, etc. Or do they tell you what to prepare before the audition?
Thanks!!! Any input would be appreciated.
