I chose not to teach adults. I don't think it's wrong to teach only the ages that you feel most comfortable with. I personally work best with children, and that's my specialty.

I know teachers who prefer to teach adults but not children. To each his/her own. I say let each teacher decide for himself/herself which ages he/she prefers to work with.

Also, I wish to point out that when I lived in TX, I received a few calls from men who supposedly wanted to take piano lessons, but the way they talked made me feel very uncomfortable. Since I was home alone most of the time, I didn't even want to let them know where I lived, much less let them in my house! I followed my gut instinct, because my gut instinct is usually not wrong.

I, also, have a policy not to teach adult males. It's a safety thing.
I have had very good experiences with female adults and it has been very rewarding. The secret is to have the same standards as you do for children.
