What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I continue to practice the art and play regularly. When I host recitals, I will learn, memorize, and perform a piece along with my students. It is a great example of what they can aspire to but it also sharpens my skills as well. I also believe that other activities can relate or be applied to the piano so I participate in community choirs but also offer my services as an accompanist for solo and ensemble competitions.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common job I provide is teaching piano for my clients. I teach both children and adults. My youngest student is early elementary and my oldest student is in retirement.
Additionally, I also act as a piano accompanist for the Solo & Ensemble competitions that are held in the month of February
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask your teacher of their qualifications and experience. Also ask the teacher about the cancelation policies, curriculum, and requirements. Some will have additional fees for recitals, books, etc.
