Piano Lessons (for children or teenagers)
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
$90 per month for half-hour piano or voice lessons weekly. $180 per month for 60-minute voice or piano lessons weekly. $135 per month for 45-minute piano or voice lessons. $160 per month for 2 students in 1 family taking a half-hour each. I charge a materials and music fee of $30 once per year which covers everything needed for lessons. The monthly tuition is based on 48 lessons per year spread over 52 weeks. There are 4 weeks off, consisting of Thanksgiving break, winter break, and spring break.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to have an informal first lesson in order to get acquainted with the new member of my musical family. We talk school or work, interests, hopes and dreams, etc. If the student is a beginning pianist, I explain and show the workings of the piano and then introduce them to their first lesson book. A student who has studied before is usually evaluated and placed in the appropriate book over the first two or three lessons. Beginning voice students are introduced to basic technique through warm ups and simple songs. More advanced students also are evaluated and exercises and repertoire chosen for their level of progress. Students are welcome to bring any music from school to their lessons when they need help.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I hold a bachelor's and a master's degree in music, both education and performance, and certification to teach public school music K-12 in New Jersey. I practice daily and belong to several online groups which discuss all aspects of teaching music and belong to the National Federation of Music Clubs and The Orlando Music Club. I have my master's but I have many textbooks and reference books on hand for research.
