Hello Jimmy, I'm really sorry you didn't enjoy the lesson. I know you traveled far. But do you think one lesson is fair to come to a conclusion? Can you please elaborate on any concerns so I can address them. I'd by happy to give you some free lessons, as I've never had a bad review, anywhere in my life. Check out Patient Lessons on Guitar, Bass or Piano on Facebook.
As a mature student and absolute beginner to piano I took my first lessons with some trepidation. I have found Bob to be very enthusiastic, supportive and helpful; and very good at explaining underlying musical theory concepts, not just the mechanics of playing piano.Jun 8, 2017VerifiedRobert C.'s reply
It's been a lot of fun teaching you. Consistency is the key!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Generally we start with shorter lessons which are more economically priced at $30. As we progress, depending on the student, we spend more time reviewing and playing together and we expand the lesson to 45 minutes to an hour. I only charge $5 more for the extended lessons, but the student has to earn my additional time. My rates are very reasonable for someone with my credentials. I offer family discounts.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Practice comes first. I am dedicated to practice on a daily basis. I constantly research the psychology of music, I look in two areas. One area is how to be a better teacher and how music study effects the brain. Music students do significantly better than their peers in all academic areas.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was inspired by a great teacher who taught me how to work professionally as both a guitar and bass teacher. I worked my way through college playing and teaching music. I learned a great deal about teaching from him, and wanted to teach music. However, I add ear training as a natural part of my lessons. It is something everyone should have from the start and was amazed at music college how much better my ear became.
