Our 7 year-old, Jonah, was thrilled with his lesson. He came home with new ideas to practice and spent some time showing off what he had learned.Jun 21, 2017VerifiedPiano Lessons by Judy Babcock's reply
Thank you! I enjoy working with him!
Judy is a very patient and understanding piano teacher. I learned so much from her in my first lesson. Have scheduled weekly sessions ongoing with her.Apr 1, 2017Verified
Judy has been great with my son. He's really enjoying the piano. The lessons are short enough to hold his attention and keep his interest- while still getting some good practice in!Aug 11, 2017
The whole family all my kids liked her .An awesome piano teacher in Gresham.Jun 14, 2016Verified
I am enjoying my lessons with Judy. I have only had 3 and it is not as easy as I thought it would be. She has a lot of patience. I hope to learn a lot from her.Oct 31, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Fees are based on time used for the lesson. Most lessons are 30 minutes in length, and the fee for that is $30. Some people prefer longer lessons, so 45 minutes is $40 and an hour is $50. For children younger than 6, I begin with lessons that are 15 minutes in length, for a fee of $15. As they are able, the lesson time is lengthened by 5 minutes at a time, with appropriate adjustment of fees. I do provide lesson and performance books at a 10% discount.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If it is a student who has had no experience, I introduce the student to my baby grand piano and show them how it works. Then, we begin with the appropriate lesson book. I use one set for young children, and another set for older beginners. The books I use gradually introduce the student to all that needs to be learned to become proficient. For very young children (the youngest I have taught have been 4 1/2), after the lesson is finished, they are allowed to play whatever they want, and they can also watch the hammers hitting the strings.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I began lessons as a child, continued in college, and now continue to study with a professional pianist with a master's degree from the Moscow Conservatory. I also have colleagues who either play or teach piano, and have discussed issues with them.
