About this pro
Very friendly and very knowledgeable. But when the next student came, I was asked to pay. Np. I went to car to grab checkbook and my violin had been moved out of the way and set on top of case. I actually didn't like my violin being touched. The next student had already started by the time I came back. As it being my first lesson, I expected to be told what to practice, how well I did, and to discuss the 1st lesson. But I walked out the door with nothing more being said and I was never contacted after that lesson to discuss further lessons or what I should practice. I understand now that teachers move from 1 student to the next, but my current teacher makes sure to finish with the first until moving on, even if she's running late. I still receive my 30 min session.May 8, 2018VerifiedCarolyn B.'s reply
Sarah I am sorry that your case got moved by the next student. He is new to the violin. I usually plan to give extra time for the first lesson, however at the end of your half hour, the next student needed to start his lesson on time. As I have many students, I try to teach them on schedule. I am always happy to answer any questions students may have about their lessons. If you would like to call me or send me an e-mail I will do my best to help you. Best wishes to you on achieving your dreams of playing the violin.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I teach music by the hour and the half hour. Most beginning students request a half hour lesson. The more advanced students will want to take a full hour of lessons. Some people who are traveling further to my studio take a full hour lesson. I usually teach students a lesson each week for continuity. My prices are very consistent with what most experienced private teachers charge here in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Lessons in Los Angeles or New York tend to be much higher. You are getting the value of all of my experience as a teacher, my training with university professors, and my professional help for Phoenix prices.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Even though I have a Doctorate in music, I have recently taken four college classes in music education to finish my Arizona Teaching Certification. I also did some major professional development this summer at the Colorado Suzuki Institute in order to gain more knowledge of how to teach very young beginners. I am always learning new ways to teach music better.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was inspired to become a musician at a young age by hearing the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. I knew by the age of twelve that I wanted to be a professional musician. I also had the opportunity to work with the finest teachers and conductors in California. When I had the chance to take lessons from a musician in the Los Angeles Philharmonic when I was a freshman in college, that sealed my decision to make music my career. My high school counselor said that with my grades I could go into any field, but I chose music because it is what I love best in life. It is like breathing air.
