- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Lessons are $30/half hour (a little extra if more travel is involved) plus the cost of books/music. Performances depend on the type of gig (wedding, party, bar/restaurant) and the length of time you want me to play. Custom songs for weddings, anniversaries, etc. start at $500, and include a simple recording. Prices for live performance of the song, or more elaborate recordings are negotiable.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Meet them and address their fears or concerns (some people are a little nervous.) Have them show me what they know, and talk about past experiences. Ask questions about what they want to accomplish.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
While I do not have a degree in music ( I was an education major, and then a business major in college,) I have over 20 years of teaching and performing experience.
