This might be a bit off topic but I think it's necessary to phone people back as soon as possible, even if you have a wait list.

Wow Barb! That was a wild one. Lucky thing that you didn't have an opening!

I had a couple teachers state to me that they weren't taking students and had a waiting list--and ending the conversation without asking if I'd be interested in being on the waiting list. I thought that was a little weird, and kind of another way of saying that they didn't want me as a student.

That makes me think a good initial filter for piano teachers answering or returning calls about open studio spots may be to respond that they'll need to be put on the wait list for the time being. If all goes well, the following day, a spot may just magically "open" wink.

I called, emailed and left messages at a so called "piano studio". I was anxious about starting lessons, and only had Google to help me. I never got an email, call or anything back. I found the company on Twitter, and sent them a message there. They rudely replied about how busy they are and to just send an email with my information.

This was March, and to this day no response *rude*. I make sure to talk about their company loudly to anyone who cares to listen.
