<p>S had a plan, worked out with his teacher, to go around and have sample lessons with one teacher per college or conservatory. S's teacher based those recommendations on people that he knows, or knows through reputation and thought would be a good match and strong teacher for S. At one of these schools that we will have to fly to, my D's best friend studies horn with a different teacher and strongly urges that S should have a lesson with her teacher, saying her teacher is a nicer and better, although not the principal at the orchestra as is the recommended teacher. D's friend is a horn performance major, although not as strong a player as S. Well, we all are aware that being principal may only be a matter of being available for the right audition at the right time, so that doesn't concern me at all. I do have some concern about traveling to a school to have sample lessons with two teachers. Can this be accomplished in a way that doesn't offend? Is that a risk not worth taking at this time? </p>
<p>I see no problem heading in after an acceptance, if offered, to take lessons with multiple teachers, but beforehand, I'm very confused as to whether this can be pulled off in one visit. And it will only be one visit before auditions. </p>
<p>Have people been able to accomplish this feat? Did that effect the offers received? </p>
<p>thanks for your input..
