FAQs


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

The student takes a first free trial lesson where he/she meets the teacher.  Parents may sit in the lessons if they choose.  The private lesson begins with the basics of note symbols, rythm, tempo, technique, and leads to full music reading and eventually public performance at one of our 4 recitals per year.  We have many adult students, as well as children of all ages.


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

Our teachers hold a college degree, many with Masters, and have experienced success in music performance and teaching experience.


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

We have 3 registration packages, which is discussed with students and/or parents at the first free trial lesson.


How did you get started teaching?

All of our teachers have a deep passion for music and the arts.  Most started as children learning their primary instrument, and reached professional success once graduating from college.


What types of students have you worked with?

Children age 3 to Adults.  Some have special needs, as well.


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

Look for the healthy balance of fun and learning.  Learning a musical instrument is a journey that should be enjoyed along the way.  Also, it is important to have an outlet for performance more than once or twice a year.  It's simply not enough.  Look for programs that do recitals 4 times a year.


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

What instrument are they passionate about, whether it's piano, voice, guitar, drums, violin, etc.  The practicing is much easier if they are passionate about the instrument.
