    Ron encourages you to learn at your own pace without a rigid structure. He is knowledgeable and has positive attitude.

  • Lydia Sargent

    He was patient with me. I told him what I wanted to learn and he based his lessons on that. He encouraged me to loosen up and not worry about making mistakes.

  • Kathryn Pasour

    I have learned so much from my classes with Ron. He offers guided instruction in a manner which helps you feel challenged but not overwhelmed. Ron brings a fresh perspective which keeps his lessons engaging while allowing the student to explore various media. I highly recommend his classes.

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

We meet first, a courtesy meeting, to see if we will be a good fit. We talk about the student's desire, why they want lessons, and their time commitments to insure their success.  We work in 2 hr sessions (with a moderate fee) and I offer handouts for at home reading and for processing what we learn in our sessions. We do weekly check-ins to make sure both the student and I are reaching the goals desired.

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

I'm mostly self-taught, which helps to guide beginners in ways that help them reach their goals with kess frustration, simple steps, to know what products to buy without wasting lots of time and money. 

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

My sessions are $20.00 for 2hr sessions for any medium I teach. While I'll share some of my own material at different times, each student must be responsible for bringing their own material to each session.
