How did you get started doing this type of work?
Delian music is a family business that has been around for a very long time - since 1947! My mother had the business from 1967 - 1977 when i took over the business. I decided to help out my mother when my father passed away giving up a career as a paralegal, and have not looked back. It is gratifying to know that in some large way, i am making a wonderful contribution to a person's education through music. I don't feel education is complete without music education because of the many benefits associated with music lessons. We are very proud of that and the fact that we have been around for sooo long!!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We pride ourselves on being an "old-fashioned" music store - the kind where you can get your instruments repaired, strings put on your guitar, your violin tuned and finding that piece of sheet music you need for your daughter's wedding. In addition to our staff of 12 in-house teachers, we also send teachers out to after school music programs in the area - the inglewood unified school district and several charter schools. Because we are not a chain nor a megastore, we are able to offer those special little services that you just cannot get at a larger music store!!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have two teachers that are particularly talented in teaching children with autism. Guitar and piano.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you check out our website, you will find several articles on how we teach. In short, we have 3 types of teaching: 1 - for children focusing more on theory and practice; 2 - for the student who wants a little theory and more fun; 3 - for the adult who does not have time to learn all theory - but just that one song. We cater the lesson to the students specific desires. We also have all of the lesson books, teaching accessories and inexpensive instruments for sale all under one roof. - "one stop shopping. " what are you waiting for? Give us a call!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
We have a selection of teachers. If one is not a good fit, we have more to choose from!
