Great article here, describing how to discern a good teacher from not so good.  Happily, I have been using similar terms to describe my own aim in teaching.  As the author says, the goal is to empower the student to achieve their own musical development.  I really like how he pegged that essential quality of good teachers.

In my own life, I have been fortunate enough to study with some great teachers, but I also appreciate those who have been not-so-great.  Those bitter experiences I have had are just as valuable for my own teaching, and have taught me the importance of listening and trying to help, without involving my own ego.

Anyways, it's a nice article.  If you are seeking an instructor, give this a quick read and then ponder the instructors available to you.
