I hired Mr. Grether to teach my 8 year old to play acoustic guitar. I liked the fact that he took the time to talk to my son in an effort to getting to know his learning style which will come in handy. My son was comfortable and had only nice things to say about his experience during this first lesson.Sep 13, 2018VerifiedPGrether private music lessons's reply

Michael, Thank you for taking the time to post a review! It definitely was a pleasure meeting you. I look forward to starting lessons with you! Paul Grether
We have been doing lessons for just over 1 month with Paul for our 12yr old son. Paul has been extremely flexible and it works well for our schedule with him being in a different time zone we can do lesson later than local shops offer and in our own home. Paul is very patient and takes time to review with the parent what needs to happen for the student to progress so it doesn’t waste time and money. He offers an online lesson plan and is readily available if you run into questions. Excellent experience thus far.Jan 4, 2019VerifiedPGrether private music lessons's reply

Kara, Thank you for your 5 star review!! Paul Grether
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Price Rates vary by duration of time for lesson, plus a small travel fee depending on your location, since some lessons are mobile. If we are working together by phone or internet, the pricing may be different from a mobile lesson. A lesson time and day would be scheduled and will remain the same from lesson to lesson. If scheduled lessons are not cancelled and I arrive at the home, there is a $25.00 charge for that missed lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?An intake appointment is arranged to see how to best meet the needs of the individual. It is there where a plan is discussed with the individual to make certain they are receiving what they need. Then instruction is carried out on a regular scheduled basis.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been playing the piano for well over 50 years and the guitar for nearly 40 years!
