Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $22.00 for a 15 minute lesson (4 and 5 year olds only); $45 for a half hour lesson; $65 for a 45 minute lesson. I require a 24 hour minimum cancellation notice so that I can use the time for make-ups.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I schedule a free initial meeting/lesson in which we may do some things with the keyboard especially if the student has had lessons before so that I can gauge their level and observe their technique. Mainly though we will talk generally about how the online lessons work, how to set up for the lessons; the kind of things we will be doing in the lessons, the musical interests and goals of the student, practice expectations and the like. I will also introduce some of the software programs I use with my students including and especially the internet Midi program I mentioned in my profile which allows student and teacher to play each others electric keyboards remotely. If the prospective student is a child I may present a music riddle for them to solve!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As mentioned in my profile I have studied with various music professionals including professors at local universities and have been teaching piano for 40 years.
