Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The process for working with a new student will vary per instructor, but each of them share some basic priciples. We always assess the students current ability and knowledge, then figure out what their goals are. We want to know if they are just looking to be able to strum a couple chords, play in their praise band at church, or shred in their friend's metal band. This allows us to put a plan in place that will help the student reach their goals. We keep the lessons fun using the music and songs that students know and recognize while weaving in the fundamental knowledge and technics that they need.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We have a dozen instructors on staff that have a wide range of teaching experience. Some of them have music degrees, and some have been teaching for 15-20 years. All of our instructors are highly qualified and have a passion for teaching.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
We offer weekly hour lessons at $50 each or half hour lessons for $25 each, and payment for the month is due at the first lesson of each month.
What types of students have you worked with?
We have taught all types of students including very beginners, a retired person looking to learn the blues, to even people playing every weekend in a band that just want to refine a certain aspect of their playing.
