- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I mostly teach at my in-home music studio in Fairfax Va, however I will travel to select students for an additional $10 up to 15 miles away from the 22033 area code. No complicated pricing system. Simply the hourly rate, paid each lesson in cash, check or paypal. No formal commitments needed unless you would like to reserve a specific time slot each week and you only need to pay for one lesson at a time. Students do not need to pay for a block of lessons up front like most music stores.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First I start with a phone conversation to get an idea of what a particular client is looking for in terms of wanting to learn guitar. What types of motivation is driving them to wish to start to learn, followed by a brief discussion in the types of music that they would like to play. After comparing schedules we will find a mutual time to start for a first try a lesson, in which we further get to know one another and I assess what type of background a potential student might have in regards to music. If a student has had any prior learning with Guitar I will find out what skills they have to improve upon and if a student is a total beginner, I start them from step one to build the foundation to get them playing as fast as possible. i'll take an assessment of the types of style and learning method that each particular student seems suited the best for as well as understanding their specific initiatives in terms of how fast they want to be able to be playing at a certain level, and take into consideration how much time they will have to dedicate to practicing so that I can better help assist them in their time outside of our lessons.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a degree in Public Relations and minor in Music Education. I stay in tune with all the latest news in guitar tricks, and techniques and teaching methods.
