I just had my first drum lesson with Vince. It was a blast! He was very professional and patient which allowed me to relax and totally enjoy the lesson. Thank you!Nov 28, 2018Verified

Violin Lessons (for adults)
Only had 1 lesson so far, but both James, the owner, and Holly, the instructor, have made my experience so far remarkably easy. Looking forward to continuing on with my lessons!Sep 26, 2017VerifiedPortage Music Lessons's reply

Thank you for the great review!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have the standard pricing of $25 dollars for a half hour lesson and $40 for an hour lesson. Students get their first lesson free and promos vary by month.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Usually when working with a new customer I evaluate where they are at and work their custom lesson plan around that. I don't go from a stock premade lesson plan, every student is different so they should be taught differently.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?James is a graduate of the Atlanta Institute of Music. He has gigged professionally for the last 12 years and also has taught privately for 3 years.
