About this pro

We are a family run business.  Kathy Willow runs Willow Music with her 2 sons.  Together we have over 50 years of experience!  We think of ourselves as a "music club" for kids who are into music.  We provide private lessons, and plenty of opportunity for collaboration.  We love to go out into the community and use our music to brighten the lives of others.

At our studio, we teach piano, flute, percussion and drums, jazz and music theory.

We love what we do!  We love our families, our students, and the ability to spend our days making music with them!

FAQs


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

at the first lesson I will evaluate the student and determine which method book would be best for him/her.

We will go over how lessons work at our studio, and the importance of practice at home.  I will introduce our studio challenge for the year.

With beginners, I use a lot of games to reinforce concepts, and get them making music as soon as possible.


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

I have a bachelor's degree in music and have been teaching for over 30 years.

I am a board member of the Palm Beach County Music Teachers Association


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

We are a tuition based music school.  Lessons are charged per semester, at a rate of $32.50/30 minutes; and $65.00 for an hour.


How did you get started teaching?

It is what I always wanted to do, and I began teaching before I finished college.  I was able to open my dream studio in 2008, and am fortunate to now work together with my 2 talented sons!


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages/levels.  I begin at about age 5, and have students into their 80's.  It is important to know the goals and interests of each student so that they can be guided to reach those goals.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently took a group of students to an assisted living facility to play for the residents in their Halloween costumes.  Both the kids and the residents loved it!

I was also able to perform at the Florida State Music Teachers Association Conference in Miami together with one of my sons.


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

1.  Make sure you find a teacher you are comfortable working with.  Meet with the teacher before you commit to lessons.

2.  Understand that you will get what you put into music lessons.  The more you practice at home, the faster you will master the instrument.


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

1.  Why do you want to learn your instrument?  

2.  What type of music are you interested in playing?

3. How much time do you have to invest this pursuit?
