I know what you mean! I had an ok teacher throughout primary school, but I didn't know he was medioka because I was 7 when I started! At the end of primary, I had to change, and I changed to a man who is our church organist who used to teach music at my secondary for many years! He is soooo much better than my old teacher because he has better teaching methods! E.g. Grade 4 is my next grade, but instead of diving in, he's learnt my weakness is scales, and i'm learning them slowly! I do not recommend online piano lessons, because you don't have someone watching you play and correcting your technique, or suggesting good music for your level etc... This man you're meeting sounds good, so give him a try! Good Luck!
