- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I attribute a great deal of the success I have with my students to having shared goals, and being a good match in personalities. This is why I request all prospective students to schedule a trial lesson. The trial lesson is 30 minutes, and is conducted just as a regular lesson. This gives the student a chance to see what the lessons are like, and a chance for me to assess the student's level, strengths, and areas for growth before we decide to work together. I use a variety of books and materials, and customize each student's curriculum. **All adult students are required to schedule a complimentary trial/evaluation via Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype to be considered for acceptance.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
