To ask a lot of questions, and to use my experience to help a customer achieve what they really want.

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.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I typically charge $100/hr. This can vary based on location, setup time, and additional preparation. I am willing to work with all budgets.
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.

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.
