I'm having the first lesson with a new teacher this weekend. She's a professor at a conservatory. A while back I asked my cousin to find a violin teacher for me, just to have an option, and she did. They were classmates at conservatory and are still good friends. I'm not sure how much she told her about me... not much I suspect. And we've so far only talked very briefly on the phone to set a time for the first lesson. She's not asked what level I'm at, how many years I've played or what I'm playing now.
So the question is, how do first lessons normally go? Am I supposed to play for her everything I'm learning now? That'd take longer than the lesson. Plus I don't really want to redo the works I've done so far. So if she starts pointing out things with my current repertoire, can I say I intend to learn something different? Would that be very rude? Shall I take the whole stack of music scores of things I've recently played and potentially want to learn with me?
Sorry if it seems all very trivial. I'm nervous and keep going the details through in my mind.
