About this pro

Hello!  My name is JoVia.  I own Sounds About Write, LLC which functions more than a school of music.  I have a small staff of professional musicians/teachers that I work with who are available to teach you how to play instruments, write your own songs and record/mix those songs. What you want to acheive is up to you. We believe that music is a healing tool.  We encourage all of our students to not only learn how to play instruments but to also learn to write/record their own songs in music software to share with family and friends.  This depends, of course, on what the students wants to learn.  Let us know what you are looking for. 

(Our site will be back up in a few days, sorry for the inconvenience).

We enjoy watching our students accomplish tasks week to week.  There's nothing more joyful than a student who loves playing their instrument.  Our teachers are very patient and talented. Visit us at sawmusicschool.com

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, we want to know how much the student knows about their instrument in the beginning.  From there, we will figure out what the student needs to get to the next level.  Through out the lessons, we pay attention to technique (and recovery) to avoid injuries like carpal tunnel or muscle overuse syndrome.  


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

The majority of SAW's music instructors have Bachelor degrees in music and are also currently working on their PhD's in music.    You can read everyone's bio on the website.  Here's my personal website: joviaarmstrong.com


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

We prefer to allow our instructors to set their own rates since they all have different experience.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

It may feel difficult at first.  Stay consistent with practicing (everyday for at least 30 minutes) and it will get easier quicker than you know.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should probably think about:

- What genre of music you'd like to play on your instrument?

- Which brand/model instrument you should buy if you don't own it already?

-What do colleges expect at auditions?

-What colleges fit your musical goals?

-What do you want to accomplish by learning how to play an instrument?  And/or learning how to record your own songs?
