How did you get started doing this type of work?
Over the years I would help friends and family out with music. I'd show them the "ropes" and eventually realized I really enjoyed it. I decided to get into teaching more officially in 2010.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Styles of teaching can vary a little from teacher to teacher. It's important that you have a teacher who is on the same page as you. I would encourage anyone who is under me to seek out other sources if they think it's not working. It's the utmost importance that a teacher helps you reach your full potential. To be fair though, the responsibility mostly falls to you, the student, for increasing in skill; because a teacher can only show the way.
