- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Hi Friends, I offer the first 2 lessons free to give everyone a chance to decide whether I am a good fit for you. I charge $30 for half an hour, $45 for forty-five minutes, and $60 for an hour. However, I am sensitive to any families suffering financially and am willing to talk over with you the price that fits your budget. Look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Esther
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Typically, I offer the first 2 lessons free so that every new customer gets a fair chance to see if my teaching fits his or her expectations. In the first lesson, I like to ask my new student to play something he or she has already learned to play. I ask what he or she would like to learn and how many years of lessons he or she has had already. In this way, I look for each students' strengths and build confidence through them. I like to make the lessons fun so that the week of practicing is challenging and the next lesson something to look forward to. I try to make every lesson a new learning experience so that new ground is gained each week. Music is meant to bring joy, and the joy itself brings inspiration. This was my experience, and I make it my aim to share this same delight that music has brought to me. I emphasize theory, sight-reading, ear-training, technique, and repertoire.
