Where I teach, students can apply for scholarship. For students who do not have a scholarship, talk to me in advance, before lessons begin as far as meeting whatever needs you have. Advanced notice helps and time of year. Early fall and right before summer.
Lots of listening to their needs and concerns. Focusing on goals that they have and just having fun with music! I do ask that students consult me before they purchase an instrument or accessories.
