It was quite odd with the wife in the kitchen babysitting and kids screaming while my child was getting lessons.Apr 29, 2017VerifiedAllen L.'s reply
Hi, Christina B. I think you posted your review to the wrong teacher. I wasn't teaching piano today. Do you have a student in my piano studio?
Allen Long is a patient, kind piano teacher who can relate to any age. My granddaughter (age 9) followed lessons of a college student, and Mr. Long was able to switch approaches seamlessly. He encourages listening and practicing between lessons and is very reasonable in expense.Jul 30, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I teach 36 lessons in a 12 month period. The yearly cost of lessons is divided into 12 equal payments. If the student cancels a lesson, I will look for a possible re-schedule. If I have no re-scheduling openings, the missed lesson is treated like a missed class in college. It is possible that the student may not receive all 36 lessons when a lesson is missed.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We meet for an initial interview. This is a get acquainted session and there is no charge.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BA from California State University at Fullerton (1975). I was a music major and took classes in piano pedagogy. I have a Masters in Music from Southern Methodist University (2005). I have had additional training in Southern Methodist University Institute for Piano Teachers (2014).
