- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I know that $65/hr for one-hour lessons, $50/half hour, $250/month seems steep for drum lessons. The reason for those prices is for the fact that not only do I deliver high-quality lessons, but I provide coaching and custom curriculum that is tailored to your goals, but I also teach relevant techniques that are used in current professional standards, as well as mentorship, guidance, and leadership. I have a lot of real-life experience in this business and life experience in general, so I am here to help. No situation is too much.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our first lesson is an introductory lesson. I want to hear about YOU. I want to hear about what you want to accomplish, what are your goals, what do you want to do? Not all students want a book thrown at them and say "learn this." I'm about teaching to the student, not to the curriculum. I will tailor-make the situation to your liking to keep you engaged. Life is hard, drums and music is fun. Going forward, the way the Covid lessons will work is, I will set up a Zoom link that you'll access. From there, I will film weekly videos that we go through every week and talk through it in lesson. As part of the package, I film the videos in the week between lessons, and then I create a Google Drive folder that you'll have access to at any time for your practice. It's part of the added value of the course, real time instruction with 24 hour access to all materials.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 25 years of professional experience in multiple genre. I have over 18 years of touring experience that has taken me all over North America. I have played clubs, large clubs, arenas, theaters, and ampitheaters. I have been featured in Drum! Magazine, and I hold several endorsements. In terms of my electronic music production, my solo project, JD Lion, I have accumulated thousands of streams on Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, and SoundCloud. I am currently signed to Independent Ear Music Group, and I have released an album and EP in 2020.
