Guitar and Piano teachers have it easier as there are a lot more
students willing to get lessons on it and those instruments aren't
taught by a band director in the local schools.

experience - not just because you offer to do it!!) to hand select
you as their students teacher, then you will be getting students on a
regular basis - not until then.
