- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
$30 per 1/2 hour lesson; $40 for a 45-minute lesson and $50 for a 1-hour private instrument lesson house-call. It is the same for remote lessons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first thing is usually scheduling. Once we figure out a day and time that works for both of us, we are set. Some new clients request referrals or testimonials to verify my work history, which I am happy to pass along. I have many very satisfied clients who are more than happy to share their experience with me, with you! Occasionally, we have to try a few days and times before we get settled into a regular spot but that usually doesn't take long and then the time is your indefinitely.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
