I’ve accumulated decades of learning techniques that I’ve used myself and for my students. Playing an instrument requires talent, like so many other things, but we must remember that it requires 99% skill.
Talent is something you have. Skills are something you learn.
I like building relationships with my students. Teaching is teamwork, even though the team is just the student and teacher.
Lou promptly answered my messages and was readily available. Very professional, extremely helpful and super reasonable with prices. I am definitely returning as a student and I highly recommend him.
Savage music mentoring was by far the best mentoring experience I’ve had. If you are serious about singing so is Lou. No sugar coated conversations just real facts on how to improve.
Lou is great! He is an amazing musician and teacher. He has taught my son guitar for a few months now and I'm impressed with how motivated my son is to practice after each lesson.
Lou is the only teacher that we have had that my kids really look forward to his lessons They are able to play the music that they want using his help and guidance.
First I ask them the question, “So what do you already know about this instrument?”
The answer is nothing or something. Nothing is easy. Something means I need to know what that means to them.
For instance: A student says he’s played cello for 8 years. Does that mean he took up cello in 6th grade but doesn’t play anymore? Was he ever any good at it? Does he still play now, or is the cello sitting in the closet? It’s often unclear until the end of the first lesson.
I’ve been a professional, performing musician since my teens. Orchestras, bar bands, ethnic ensembles, rock bands, RnB bands, jazz groups, church choirs. A little of everything.
That all happened before, during and after having gone to music school. I’ve gone to 3: Berklee in Boston, Edinboro University in Pennsylvania, and Cleveland Institute of Music, where I got my degree.
My fees are $35/30 min, $50/45 min, and $70/60 min. I normally charge by the month, but can flex according to students’ needs.
