guitar teaching job interview...what to expect?

So im pretty pumped, i got called for an interview at a local studio to teach lessons and possibly organize bands (normally teenagers). ive had interviews before for jobs totally unrelated to music, but i have to assume that this is going to be a different experience altogether. im hoping a few of you hear teach lessons and im hoping for your advice.

what should i expect? im going to bring my guitar in the likely event that they will want me to play something, but is there anything else i should be prepared for? what questions are typically asked? also how should i dress? i have literally no collared shirts so i was hoping a plain black t shirt and jeans would be okay, but im likely going to buy something nicer tomorrow.

thanks for any info you guys got for me.

I don't see how it would be damaging. I got called C-dog for a number of years despite not being a dog. I turned out alright.

I can really only comment on your qualms with how you're dressed. I'm sure a casual outfit will suffice for the position, but I'm sure it can't hurt to wear a short sleeve polo or something. And if you're teaching lessons at a studio and organising bands for young people, they'll probably have concert days so they can show their parents what they've learned, right? You'll probably need to be well-dressed if that is the case for that day(s).

And, depending on the circumstances, you may be asked to wait and be seated in additional chairs.

Yes. There are many kinds of chairs. Some have arms for which to relax your arms on. Some don't. There is a good probability of there being chairs with arms at your interview.

Also, you can expect the interviewer to be sitting in a rolling chair. A rolling chair, as the name implies, is a chair hat has wheels for which to roll on. They are usually used as a convenient way to move to another part of the room without having to get up from the chair itself. These are also known to have arms.

Now would TS do this in addition to expecting the expected, or is it implied that he should not expect the expected instead and focus mostly on the unexpected?
