Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I offer a free first lesson, much like an interview so that I can explain my process in detail, learn your goals and ambitions with music, and help you set benchmarks for yourself.
I then personalize a lesson plan for you that shifts with your learning style and speed.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have an Associates in Arts and Music, and am currently furthering my education towards a bachelor's degree in music composition. That is coupled with over 10 years of musical performance.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Normal Rates are as follows:
$40 for a half-hour lesson
$50 for a forty-five minute lesson
$60 for an hour lesson
pricing varies based on frequency, duration, and difficulty of lessons
Discounts are offered to students who are genuinely serious, have consistent and good attendance, and/or buy lessons in bulk.

How did you get started teaching?
I began learning music when I was the age of 9, ever since I have had a desire to learn and have aspired to teach in a professional capacity.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students of all ages and skill levels, ranging from 4-78 years of age to 0-35 years of guitar experience.
Day 1 beginners are just as welcome as an expert trying to sharpen skills.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I've recently concluded lessons with a teenage student who has been studying under my guidance for 7 months, (roughly 25 lessons). She can now play any song that she wants with ease and it warms my heart any time that I hear her playing what she wants without needing me to hold her hand.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make certain that you have a personal instrument that you care about and are excited to learn on. (I can provide recommendations free of charge)
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What should I be looking for out of my lessons; what are my goals? Also, how long am I able to realistically practice daily? Practice is key and will do more for you than any tutor or teacher could on their own.
