AAA Music Studio
2018 Top Pro
About this pro
My years teaching in public and private schools, from pre-school through junior college,have given me experience with people of all ages and backgrounds. My "3-P" approach (personal, practical, panoramic) centers on making each student's music education experience fit their own learning style and make a difference in their overall development. I provide music for weddings, funerals, and special occasion parties - alone or with a network of other musicians, both instrumental and vocal. I will strive to find a way to incorporate the music that you want for any occasion. I love working with students, 1-on-1 or in small groups, and seeing them develop the tools necessary to better understand and appreciate music. Many people don't get the chance to learn how much talent they have hidden inside, as they go through the school system. Private lessons allow me to help them blossom at their own pace.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The only complication might be where I travel to students' homes. Then it depends on where they live and how far I need to travel. The rates are basically: In studio: $25/half hr., $35/45 min. $45/hr. In home: $35/half hr., $45/45 min.$55/hr, within about a 20 mi. driving range
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically try to interview the customer by phone or email before the first lesson, so that I have an idea of what materials we'll need. I often loan instruments to new customers who are in the process of buying their own. I use the first session as an evaluation of previous experience and current interests for older students, and introduction to some basics, for total beginners.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm not taking any formal classes at this time ( I do have a BA in Music Education and a Masters in Music Performance) but am constantly reading up on the latest studies in educational research. I'm constantly reminded of the contributions that music education can make in a student's life, especially in the areas of brain development & activity.
