Customers rated this pro highly for work quality, professionalism, and punctuality.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The cost for lessons is a monthly flat rate. It is not determined by the number of lessons in a month, but rather the number of lessons over the eleven-month period of August through June.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to get to know my students' likes and dislikes and what music they like the most. Although lesson books are important in learning technique, etc., they usually don't have pieces in them that anyone knows. So I like to supplement with songs the student likes and wants to learn to play. The whole point is to enjoy playing music! This is what will last a lifetime.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees. Worked as a professional musician in New York City for many years. Have been giving private music lessons for over 30 years. Have taught music in public schools and music camps for children and adults. Have been the director of many choirs from children to adults. All of this training and experience has helped me become a quality educator.
