How did you get started teaching?

My own early teachers were not the greatest, therefore I had to figure out a lot myself to make it to the conservatory and then make it as a performer. More about this here: https://waylandmusic.com/about-us/why-we-teach 

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages from 3 and up. We offer a warm welcome to all students - our outstanding teachers have many years of experience. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We have recitals to celebrate our students' progress twice a year. Whethere in person or on zoom, they are always wonderful events! They include students age 3 and up, playing everything from "Hot Cross Buns" to professional level repertoire.

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

There are three essential qualitites to look for, and I wrote about them in an article called "How to Choose a Private Lesson Teacher":

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

What their goals are in learning an instrument
How much time they will be able to spend each day/week
What they think their challenges are
What they are most excited about
