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

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!

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

35 years as a high school band director and music teacher in New York State.

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

$120/month which breaks down to $30 per half-hour lesson.

How did you get started teaching?

Attended the Fredonia School of Music, located at the State University College at Fredonia, NY.

What types of students have you worked with?

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.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

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

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

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

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.
