What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I typically charge $100/hr. This can vary based on location, setup time, and additional preparation. I am willing to work with all budgets.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
To ask a lot of questions, and to use my experience to help a customer achieve what they really want.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was classically trained via private instruction on piano for 10 years. Self taught on guitar and percussion. Worked for Guitar Center for 3 years where I became certified and gained a vast amount of product knowledge and concepts.
I've produced and recorded a number of solo acts in the area in my home studio, which has allowed me the opportunity to become familiar with audio engineering.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
In 2009 I quit my day job as a network admin and started playing shows. It was rough at first but I slowly built up a solid list of venues and connections. By 2010 I was completely supporting myself from performance revenue.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Restaurants, bars, wedding planners, private party hosts, businesses.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you watch live video of a musician. Sometimes a studio recording does not match what you will get live.
