    Fair - responses often did not cover, or discuss questions asked & answered on initial request.



FAQs


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

We treat our students as individuals. We work around their individual tastes and personalities. We use a balance of fun, technique/theory, and practice etiquette to achieve the fastest and best results


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

All of our teacher's have music degrees as well as vast performance experience in many different genres. We all have 10+ years of teaching experience but are all relatively young. We understand what it is to be a great teacher and a great performer and how to convey that knowledge in a way that is accessible, relevant, and applicable


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

Lessons are normally $30 a lesson but we offer a discount to lessons.com students of $25 a lesson. We also offer a FREE intro lesson to see if we are right for you


How did you get started teaching?

All of us are full time teachers and performers. We don't have day jobs. Music is, and has always been, our love and passion! We were all born to do this and don't think there was ever another option in our minds other than playing and teaching music.


What types of students have you worked with?

We have a very diverse student body. We have just as many adult students as kids,ranging from 5-85 yrs. Many people who come to us having never touched an instrument as well as seasoned pros who have hit a wall and everything inbetween. Stylistically, we have it all. Students who are fans of Rock, Country, Classical, Blues, Jazz, Metal,Rap, and any other style you can think of, we have it and can teach it! We have students who are blind, deaf, have A.D.D, as well as other physical or mental handicaps.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our last recital for many reasons. Because we tend to keep our students year after year, we saw some great improvement, some very difficult pieces performed with confidence and grace, as well as many new faces sharing their gift and hard work for the first time. I love seeing the sense of accomplishment in the students as well as the joy/pride of family and friends.

Even though recitals are completely optional for students, we had a great turnout and went from 2 programs last year to 3 full, back to back programs this year!


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

Try a Free lesson to see if you like it. There's no sales pitch. We won't try and convince you to sign-up. You'll know if you like the fit or not. No pressure, nothing to lose


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

How long does the teacher normally keep students?(if not for long, they probably aren't that good). Are you able to teach what I like? Is it a professional environment, like a school/studio or is it some weird guys basement? Can I talk to current students? Are there reviews online?
