FAQs


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

First, I like to find out their musical interests and what they would like to play. Then, I move to proper technique for holding guitar and sitting. From my experience, I see a lot of neglect in addressing those issues which may result in difficulty with playing the instrument, and can even lead to hurting your hands.


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

I hold a Bachelor degree in music from Mount Holyoke College and a Master in Music degree from the Hartt School of Music in concentration in Music Theory. I also spent over twenty years on and off playing in rock, blues, and reggae bands.


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

The starting rate is $40.00 for a 50 minutes lesson. I provide all the materials needed.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching first simply by being asked to teach. I realized quickly that I really love to teach and share my music with others.


What types of students have you worked with?

I work with all age groups. I taught yound kids, teenagers, as well as adults. Right now, most my students are college age, but I also have my private practice where I teach older adults.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I enjoyed a recent remark from one of my students saying:

"I knew you will have a solution for that."


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

I would advise to interview the teacher, see them play, and maybe ask to sit on a lesson with other student. Definitely, hire someone with the degree and credentials.


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

The teachers like to know the students' goals. It's easier to plan the lessons that way and meet the students' expectations from the teacher when there is some kind of point of destination. 

Saying that you want to learn to improvise is too broad. There are different styles of music and different approach to all. Being precise is probably the best bet.
