Colin is super helpful, responsive and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend working with him!Nov 14, 2018Verified
I'm a very beginner guitar player and booked lessons with Colin. He was very patient and made it easy for me to work through some of the more challenging aspects of learning to play. He has a very kind and gentle manner which made the process less intimidating. highly recommended!Oct 2, 2018
Colin is an excellent teacher! It's a pleasure to take guitar lessons from a New York working pro who also has 'chops' as a teacher. Five stars. Highly recommend!Oct 2, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $50 an hour for lessons which is paid on a monthly basis so that I know the student is committed. If the student gives me 48 hours to cancel I can make up the lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to talk one on one with my potential students on what their specific musical goals are. I ask them who there favorite artists are. Then we start playing to see where there musical level is. Then we start with chords and scales and how it applies to the songs they want to learn.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been studying and playing music all my life. I attended the prestigious fine arts high school The Interlochen Arts Academy, then received my undergraduate degree in music from Columbia College Chicago. I have also played on numerous records, played hundreds of live shows in Rock, Alternative and Classical.
