April is such a patient teacher. She really focused on helping me reach my goals. We learned at my pace the things that I was most excited to learn!! I even participated in a live public performance playing guitar 🎸 it was an amazing to go from not knowing how to play to being a mini rockstar.Jul 15, 2019

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For live performance or DJ gigs, I typically charge between $300-500 depending on amount of guests and how long I am playing for. I bring all of my own equipment so it’s easier on the host. For lessons, I charge basically $1 a minute, (for example, $30 for 30 minute lesson) but also offer discounts for multiple lesson purchases. I also don't charge extra if our lesson ends up being 35 minutes instead of 30 (for example). I'm very flexible.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?With music gigs, it’s all about the customers wants and needs for the event. What kind of music do they want to hear? What type of event is it? The overall energy and audience attendance? All these factors come into play when creating a set list to perform or DJ. My most important goal at the end of the day is to make sure my customer is 150% satisfied with my work. I strive for excellence in every musical project or performance I’m a part of. With music lessons, I start by getting to know the student's goals. I want to learn why they want to play the guitar or drums, and try and get them from making the fret sound or holding the stick correctly, to building chords or playing a simple beat within a few lessons. I am very much goal oriented - if there's a specific song or playing style the student really wants to learn, I'll do my best to teach them it.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been playing drums for 20 years, and guitar for 15 years. I have an associates degree in Audio Engineering, and I am also a performing musician. I have been in several bands throughout my career as both a drummer, guitarist, and DJ.
