Jessica is very patient and good with my kids (ages 9 and 7). They were excited to return.Jul 1, 2016Verified
Dr. Pacheco (Miss Jessica) was my son's first piano teacher when she was a PhD student at University of Georgia. She was patient, understanding, and inspirational. She customized lessons for my son and he enjoyed being with Miss Jessica for private lessons, group lessons, and music camps. Miss Jessica was also a very caring teacher. Before she left last summer, she made sure that we found a good piano teacher. When she came back to Athens for commencement last December, my son made a carnation garland for her and had another piano lesson with her. We miss her.Jun 12, 2016
Jessica was my son's piano teacher for one year. She was a fantastic teacher, really dedicated and helpful. My son likes piano, but is an active boy. Jessica recognized this and figured out a way to engage him through stimulating pieces and exercises. He learned a lot during his year with her and enjoyed performing new pieces. We were all sad when she had to move.Jun 7, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I usually charge $50 for the hour of piano lessons or accompanying. Prices may vary according to the amount of driving I will do for teaching, or the amount of music to learn (at short notice) for accompanying. Please check my website pachecojessica.weebly.com for more information.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have an interview with the customer either on the phone or in person to explain studio policies and also evaluate the level and experience with music of the student (in order to better plan my lessons).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Doctorate Degree with a major in Piano Performance and a minor in Chamber Music. My doctoral dissertation was in music theory, and I also had training in Piano Pedagogy during both my Master and my Doctorate Degrees.
