Kevin Keith - Piano/Percussion Lessons
About this pro
We received percussion lessons from Kevin Keith. He not only is an excellent musician, but he is a wonderful teacher. He is very knowledgeable in many genres of music, from solo literature, to band/orchestral music, to jazz. Of which, he shares his knowledge and experiences with his students freely. He is very hardworking and enthusiastic to ensure that his students get a quality education. He is great in communication, both with the student , in ensuring understanding of lesson materials, and with the parents on updates on how the lessons are progressing. He has a very patient and friendly disposition, that would allow anyone to feel comfortable in working with him. He has been a wonderful teacher and mentor for the past 2.5 years.Oct 4, 2016
Kevin has a very broad depth of knowledge in many genres of music. His high level of expertise leads to a highly specialized lesson structure. Mr. Keith's prior music experiences in vocal, wind band, orchestral and piano/organ performance have left him with a breadth of specialized skills that he passes along to those whom he teaches. I wholeheartedly recommend Kevin Keith!Sep 2, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$25 per half hour lesson. $30 per hour lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I give the student the option to have a trial lesson at first, to make sure that we are a fit for each other and that our time together would be productive. If this first lesson goes well, the teacher and student (or student's parents) will work to generate a regularly scheduled block of an hour or a half hour each week for the student and teacher to meet.
