- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It's not complicated - if you come to me, instruction is $40 per hour. If I have to spend time and gas driving to and from your house, I'll add a little for the trip. Let's talk and figure out what's reasonable based on where you live.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always had dual careers: music and training. I love playing and performing music and training people, so it seemed logical to combine the two! I created a group in 2012 to provide guitar and musical instruction to intermediate students in the Marina del Rey area. There are a lot of beginner guitarists out there, and Thumbtack allows me to set up lessons and teach them in a relaxed, supportive setting.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I provide private and small-group guitar lessons. Skills include beginner and intermediate chords, right-hand strumming positions, understanding how scales and chord progressions work, ear training, songwriting, creating solos, chord inversions, etc. I customize classes and update handouts to match feedback I get from my students.
