Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For drum/percussion lessons, I charge $20 for 1/2 hour or $30 for one hour. If you live 20 miles or more from Southwest Houston, I will charge $10 extra. For magic shows, I charge $75 for a small event such as a birthday party at a house with up to 20 kids. For the kids stage magic show, I charge a minimum of $100 to cover the cost of my assistant. The price can go up if you need anything extra such as the hostess being sawn in half for example.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?In terms of music, my Dad is a drummer, and I started playing a drum set at age 6. In terms of magic, I was in the 8th Grade, and I had to do a science fair project. I went to the library to look up subjects, but I completely forsook the project when I found a book on magic.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Since my business is two-fold, I will give two answers. First, I gave percussion lessons to a 5th Grader for a year. Most 6th Graders go to Beginning Band, but he tried out for the Katy Junior High Band, and he made their second to top band as a 6th Grader. I give him credit more than myself because he practiced hard. I did my first kids stage magic show at a church in Katy in early June 2011 with an assistant, and the kids had a blast! That was a huge step forward for me.
