My half hour rate is $20, my 45-minute rate is $30, and my hour rate is $40. I usually recommend half hour sessions once per week for most kids, and longer sessions for teens and adults.
I individualize all of my lessons based on a student's age, skill level, and musical interests. I am constantly trying to adapt to my students' learning styles, so that I can always teach in ways they can best grasp. The first session allows me to formulate a good plan for teaching the student, and lets the student make sure they think I'm a good fit to teach them. Oh...and the first session is free! :)
I've always loved playing music, and after living out some of my own dreams as a musician, I became inspired to teach others and help instill the same passions in them that I have. What started out as a few lessons in between tours quickly turned into teaching over 40 students of all ages each week.
