- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing as follows: 30 minute lesson: $25 45 minute lesson: $40 60 minute lesson: $50 No fees involved. I do teach from a curriculum which I may require you to purchase at some point during lessons. I do offer discounts for larger families with multiple students.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first thing that I do is to try to understand where a new student is coming from. This includes asking about their background with their instrument and music in general. Secondarily, I'm also interested in their goals and aspirations. What is it that brought them to me? Finally, I will evaluate their skill level and potential difficulties. From here I am able to ascertain a general direction in which to proceed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
