As an older adult, I again wanted to take instruction on guitar. Something I had not since the age of 12. I started a search using Lessons.com and luckily was matched with Drake Descant of Descant Music & Art. Within a day, Drake responded to my. I was provided with options on how I could again resume lessons. I proceeded with the next step and completed an on line survey tailoring a lesson plan that I would benefit by. Drake was able to accommodate my busy schedule and provided a quote that was fair and equitable. Prior to any commitment, I met with both Drake and Dan who is now my instructor. Both were enthusiastic and willing to reacquaint me with the guitar. I was concerned that as an adult, perhaps my time to learn an instrument had passed. Much to my surprise, I have learned so much and believe I am progressing under Dan. He is extremely patient and flexible by allowing me to decide what I would like to practice and learn. His guidance has been invaluable. At this time, I am subscribed to half hour lessons, at some point I would like to extend this time to one hour. My half hour with Dan absolutely flies by in no time at all. I am so happy to have made this commitment and I am having fun with it. I am going into my third month of lessons and look forward to each week. In closing, I would recommend Descant Music & Art to both the young and young at heart who are contemplating learning an instrument.
My daughter has been taking lessons from Drake for a couple years now. He has a wonderful and patient way of making the learning fun!
I had taken lessons form Drake when I was young and had returned to take lessons from him 10 years later. Drake provides a comfortable atmosphere for learning. He is very understanding and attentive. I would recommend him to anyone willing to learn of any age.
Every student is different, therefore we all try to find the right direction to go with each individual student. We try to assess the current level or figure out exactly what the student wants out of the lessons and go from there.
All of our teachers have college degrees in music and have lived lives of music.
For a weekly HALF hour lesson, the monthly tuition is $100. For a weekly HOUR lesson, the monthly tuition is $180.
Any additional weekly lesson is 20%. This also applies to multiple family members taking lessons.
There are no silly registration fees. The only additional costs are for lesson/method books and instrument rentals (If need be).
