Personalized attention to details..
never a dull moment..
My son hasn't been with them for very long yet, but we are very much enjoying the lessons.. Mr. Andrew gives extra time and really knows how to explain things to my son on his level, and the one time that he was unavailable, his teaching partner, Ani, was a real delight to work with - such a wonderful team.. David has actually been practicing his keyboard almost every day at home and his mom and I are delighted, except for when we sometimes have to tell him to put his headphones on!
(These answers are from Andrew..) step by step & deliberate - until I figure out how much the student is capable to working on per week..
I have a bachelor of music from Stetson University in Theory & Composition..
Yes. I usually charge $30 an hour ($15 a half hour / $45 for an hour and a half, etc.) plus $1 per mile if I have to travel to where the lessons are scheduled to take place.. I do make exceptions for those who have a strong desire to learn music (highly movitated students) who are short on funds to pay for the lessons..
Came pretty naturally.. my mother sat me on the piano bench when I was 6-months old..
All ages - pre-school to students in their 80's & 90's - both privately and through community education centers..
working as 'music director' for a local theater group of high school kids for a stage performance+
don't quit after the first lesson - give the teacher at least a handful (5 or 6) lessons before you decide to move on,, by then 'first impression' bugs should be worked out - remember that learning music is not going to be fun all the time,, serious effort and perserverance needs to be used in order to achieve anything that is worthwhile in this life..
Are they really willing and do they have the time to commit to starting a new area of study? The rewards will be there over time, but if the student doesn't really want to go through with it (i.e. it's the parents' dream, not the child's) then the chances of success fall off dramatically..
