Music Composition Lessons
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My base rate is $70/hr ($80/hr for in-home lessons). See "Lesson Fees" on my website: gloriamerlehuffman.musicteachershelper com lesson-fees
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first lesson is a get-acquainted session in which each of us develops a feel for the other's personality. That determines how we'll interact. I always assess a piano or voice student's level and ask what types of music are preferred. In order to be sure the foundation is laid for the type of visual work I emphasize at the piano, I work on and assign some elementary keyboard visualization exercises, no matter what the student's level is. This is to ensure that we'll be speaking the same language regarding keyboard patterns, which are critical for my approach to teaching music theory. Composition sessions are more free-flowing, but with structured guidance and exercises to match the student's abilities.
