6. Dr. Starr Violin, Viola, Cello, & Piano Lessons
New on Thumbtack
New on Thumbtack
"Hello! My name is Jared Starr and I have a passion for teaching the violin, viola, cello, and piano. When I teach students, I strive to shape them not only as musicians, but as overall people. Whether a student is young or old, music lessons can benefit them in a variety of ways. As a musician, they will develop a keener musical ear, the ability to read music at different levels, the aptitude to perform for groups of people, a strong sense of rhythm, effective practice techniques, and an overall love for the therapeutic influence music has. As a person, they will develop discipline in achieving goals, self-motivation, consistent vigilance in developing new skills, and the chance to explore their own personal creativity. From my own experience, music has not only brought happiness to my life, but has helped me excel in all of my endeavors educationally and occupationally. My Education and Experience My education as a musician and teacher has been vast. I currently hold a Doctorate and Master's degree from Florida State University and a Bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University both in violin performance. My teaching experience includes teaching positions at Florida State University, Brigham Young University, and the Montgomery Music Project in Alabama. I have also developed private studios in Florida, Alabama, Utah, and Kansas since I was a freshman in high school. In all of my teaching locations, my students have significantly varied in age and ability. I have taught children as young as four years old and adults as old as 65. Among my students, I have taught levels ranging from beginning Suzuki lessons to music majors playing solo Bach and major concertos. Hence, I have discovered the importance of teaching every student a bit differently depending on their personality, level, work ethic, and overall goals as a violinist. Lesson Rates Private lessons take place at my studio at my home in the Camelia Gardens town home community in Tallahassee on a weekly basis at with rates at $25 per half hour lesson and $50 per hour lesson. I require payment at the beginning of the month for the entire month of lessons to ensure that students are committed to lessons that month. Music has been a huge part of my life and I love sharing what I have learned with others."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

What is CPR training?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

What is first aid training?

With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

  • Asthma attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Choking
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • External bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Poisoning
  • Neck, head or back injury
  • Stroke
  • Seizure

First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

What can you do with a first aid certificate?

People with a first aid certificate are trained to respond quickly and appropriately in life-threatening situations. Although a first aid certificate alone isn’t enough to secure a job, it can make you more attractive to certain types of potential employers. When you have a first aid certificate, you’ve proved that you know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and handle emergency situations like choking, heavy bleeding, a heart attack or stroke, or anaphylaxis. Most parents prefer babysitters and lifeguards with first aid certification. Many professionals, especially those who work with children, are required to have first aid training, including teachers, coaches, counselors and therapists, firefighters, and social workers. In addition to adult and pediatric first aid plus CPR and AED courses, you can take first aid training specifically designed for babysitting and child care, for health care settings, and for swimming and water safety situations..
