I am trying to find a place to deduct my music lessons that I have taken this year. I am a private music teacher and they should be a business expense?

In the past, when I have gone into a tax accountant, they were able to place this deduction in a way where I could maximize it. I'm not quite sure where I should put it through Turbo Tax

You can deduct the expenses in Other Common Business Expenses. You would click on Other Miscellaneous Expenses at the bottom of the page, and enter the description and amount. of the expense.
