I teach at the pace of each student. I'll go as fast as they want to go, or as slow as they need to go!
35 years as a high school band director and music teacher in New York State.
$120/month which breaks down to $30 per half-hour lesson.
Attended the Fredonia School of Music, located at the State University College at Fredonia, NY.
Students as young as 5 years old, up to 80 years old. Have worked the entire range of abilities, from very proficient performers to high-functioning autistic.
Our students perform at an annual Music Showcase in May of each year. It is optional participation, but the numbers and quality of participation grow more each year!
What are the credentials of the teacher? Be prepared to pay more as the teacher's credentials show more education. A standard rule of thumb:
Music Doctorate - up to $100 per hour of lessons
Music Masters - up to $75 per hour
Music Bachelors - up to $50 per hour
Music Associates - up to $40 per hour
No Musical Credentials - up to $30 per hour
The biggest question I ask is: what are your goals? I will approach lessons differently if you just want to learn basic piano skills, for example, than I would if you want to perform competitively as a virtuoso.
