After a quick playing assessment and discussion about a new student's goals, we start working on whichever areas I believe they will see the most immediate benefit. This typically means cleaning up right and left hand technique, going over highly efficient practice methods to greatly cut down what is ordinarily a time consuming learning process, and giving the student material to study based on their interests.
Fifteen years of teaching experience, backed up by two decades of studying privately with some amazing teachers, and tons of real world experience as a studio musician, producer/engineer, and performer.
I have two standard lesson formats. The traditional being once per week at the same day and time for one hour at $70/lesson. This can be held either in my studio in East Setauket NY, or over FaceTime/Skype.
The other lesson format I offer is 20 minute FaceTime/Skype lessons for $25. This is a guided practice session, similar to working with a personal trainer at the gym. It's a great opportunity to really dig into a single concept and take it to the next level. While I've found this lesson format to be highly beneficial for anyone, I designed it for students who had very busy work schedules, and even have several people who take this type of lesson from their office on their lunch break!
I've always naturally been a teacher. Even when I was young, I would take on a teaching role with other kids in whatever activity we were doing - skateboarding, games, etc.
In my late teens I was gigging a lot, and people started asking me for lessons after seeing me play. I did this casually for a little while, until getting invited to teach at a local music store. While I did enjoy the years I spent there, it soon became obvious that in order to give my students the very best I had to offer, I needed to have my own lesson studio.
In fifteen years and well over 10,000 lessons, I've taught hundreds of clients at all skill, age, and experience levels. I work with touring professionals, local gigging artists, and absolute beginners who have never played an instrument before. The youngest I typically teach is 5 years old, and I regularly have students just starting out in their 50s and 60s.
Look for someone who understands the learning process, knows how to adapt to each student's needs, and is a full time teacher with their own studio.
