- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $100 per hour, though I’m willing to consider other pricing if needed.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I initially meet with new students to find out a number of things: their level of proficiency, their musical ambitions, their learning style, and how I can help them become the best cellist they can be under the circumstances. Over time I adjust my approach as I see how things go in actuality. Communication is key, so I try to keep the relationship I have with students open and free so that I can better serve their needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 40 years of teaching and performing experience, in addition to a BA in music performance from the University of Illinois and a Masters degree from Boston University. I’m the author of How To Get To Carnegie Hall, a weekly music practice schedule.
