- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
-30-minute lesson: $30* -45-minute lesson: $40* -60-minute lesson: $55* Books: usually a one-time cost of $9-18 depending on the student's age and level. I typically recommend starting with 30-minute lessons for beginners. If 30 minutes becomes to short of a time span to accomplish everything you/the student would like to get to, we can discuss increasing the lesson length.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Before starting lessons, I need to know 3 simple things: -the student’s age -if the student has any musical experience (it’s completely fine if they don’t!), and if yes, do they already have a set of books they have been working through -if the student has access to a piano or keyboard to practice
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I took six years of private piano lessons, and was trained classically during these lessons. I have also taken multiple college courses in music theory and music performance. I have been teaching private lessons since 2007, starting as a part-time gig. In 2019 decided to teach full time because I love teaching so much more than I wanted to climb the corporate ladder! That year I worked part time at a music academy in Southern California, and was able to shadow some incredible teachers and enhance my teaching skills there. In 2020, I decided to start my own studio. I started with three students. That number quickly grew, and holds steady between 40-50 students that I teach on a weekly basis.
