I really want to do the CTABRSM but it is so expensive. I can't even afford the instalment options. Do local education authorities offer any funding for instrumental teachers? Is it a worthwhile investment? How did you fund yours? Was it by yourself or with a loan or through LEA? I only have a few pupils and a poorly paid job but want to build my teaching skills and practice up. Any advice on how to go about getting funding? It'll take years to save up. Is it wirth the money?
