Story by Kristi Dawn
I found myself teaching piano, voice, and guitar lessons after a friend asked me to teach their son. That was 22 years ago during the summer of 1993.
I love this work because I get to help people be better at something they love, whether it’s for fun or part of their career. I help people reach their dreams, soothe their soul, and have the courage to challenge themselves.
A combination of musical skill and my drive to be and learn more makes me great at my job! A good teacher never stops learning. She always wants her students to go beyond what they thought they could ever accomplish.
If you’re looking to hire a music teacher, the decision on what teacher to hire is not a small one. Doing a trial lesson is great, but often you need several lessons before you’ll know if it’s the right student-teacher fit.And if you’re a new pro getting started on Thumbtack, I’d say the same thing. Like anything, finding new customers take time. Starting anything new is a process and requires patience.
Thumbtack has helped my business with clients and learning over time about pay-per-click marketing. I am proud to be a small business owner because I give a personal touch to my clients. I give a high quality level of music lessons for a reasonable but competitive price with great customer service.
