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

I first get to know the student and find out his/her goals for studying the new instrument.  I then assess the new student's skills and determine where to begin in terms of curriculum.  I discuss with my student the agenda for a typical lesson. I also discuss practice and encourage my student to practice as much as possible on a daily basis (even if it's only 10-15 minutes). I answer any questions my student may have and then we begin the first lesson.

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

I studied music at Indiana State University.  I have been teaching privately since 1994. I regulary play all 4 of the instruments that I teach.  

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

I charge $20 for a half hour, $30 for 45 minutes, and $40 for an hour.

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching when I was still a college student at the urging of one of my violin and viola teachers.  She had too many students, so I took on her overflow.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages (from 7-68) and all abilities (beginner to advanced). I have taught gifted students as well as students with special needs.

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

Talk to the teacher. Have a conversation about what you are looking for and how the teacher teaches and what approach he/she will use when teaching you. The conversation will tell you quite a bit about what your lessons will be like.
