Our 5 year-old has improved a great deal while taking lessons with Amy. She has made it fun and has personalized her lessons to his interest and developmental stage. He now has a better posture while playing and has started to read music.Apr 11, 2018

Piano Lessons (for children or teenagers)
My 10 year old granddaughter had a wonderful first lesson with Amy Long! Miss Amy is talented and creative. Her enthusiasm is contagious! By using a variety of techniques including placing notes between bar lines on the floor, to naming all the notes on the keyboard,and figuring out basic melodies, we came away excited and looking forward to next week's lesson!Jan 5, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For individual instruction, I charge $50/hr $40 per 45 minutes, and $25 per half hr. I also do group classes; if you're interested in a group class please contact me to discuss scope of work and pricing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first lesson is always an introduction to the student's learning styles, aesthetic preferences, and current technical level. Of course, new students should also use the first lesson -- as an introduction to me and my teaching styles! I tend to ask a lot of questions. We will also get right to work! If the student is completely new to the field, or has not brought previous work, we'll dip into my library to find appropriate, interesting material at the right level.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Current member of the San Diego Master Chorale. Past accompanist for church children's music; current substitute accompanist. Several years of past experience as church children's music director. Several years of church choir director experience. 6 months experience teaching after-school general music appreciation to kids ages 4-5. 6 months experience teaching after-school drama classes to kids ages 5-11. Opera program in college (voice performance). Since I'm a performing musician, I have to keep up with repertoire, theory, and technique studies for myself. When I learn something new, I make sure my students learn it, too!
