- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing is simple and consistent. 1 hour lesson - $45 Most clients pay with a check the first of the month, but I am very flexible.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I usually begin by asking questions pertaining to the student's experience prior to our meeting. Then, we talk about what music you are interested in. It is most important for me to know what kind of experience you wish to have with music. A quick example, many students wish to dedicate their time to learning how to read classical western music notation, but other students come in with their phones and simply play me a song on their phone, and we work together to create an arrangement of that song that is compatible with their current skills. There is no one kind of piano lesson for me, it is entirely modeled after the student's interests.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was trained in Music Composition at The Juilliard School, and received my Bachelor's in Music in 2014. I have been privately studying piano as well since I was 13. I began professionally teaching after I graduated. I worked for Musipire Professional Music Education in Queens for about 2 1/2 years before moving to The Bronx in 2017. Since then I have worked privately in the Bronx, Uptown Manhattan, and the Fort Lee area.
