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

1) pre-lesson 1rst Interview---we meet!  You get to see where I work, travel time to get here, location.  I have a questionaire I usually fill out concerning your goals and wishes as a student.  You are also introduced to my expectations as a teacher.

2) Organization:  voice folder is explained, handouts concering warm-ups, practise expectations and tips.  A record book is provided to each new piano student.  Books are looked at,and selected according to the students interest and age/experience level.

3)  We begin with short list of songs, gradually increasing.

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

I have been a pianist since the age of 6-12 years instruction prior to college.  I graduated UNL School of Music with a Vocal Music Major K-12, and a Piano Minor.   I have taught privately for 38 years and performed/directed many productions, recitals, programs, and musicals.  I have a great deal of "onstage" experience as well as a singer/actress.  I take advantage of all continuing education opportunities, workshops, seminars, and conferences.

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

I teach standard lesson length of 30 min. per weekly scheduled lesson.  This monthly fee is $70 per month, payable in advance at first lesson of each month.  45 minute lessons are offered for an $85 fee.  Voice and piano may be combined in a 45 minute time slot.

How did you get started teaching?

I fell into it quite naturally as an at home job when my children were little.  I had just completed 10 years of public school teaching, ready to try something new (but musical!) and have more time at home with my family.

What types of students have you worked with?

All types and all ages!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Attending the All School play on of my students wrote and directed.  It was outstanding!

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

Make sure there is a rapport with one another, that you like and trust this teacher.  Also that you meet them with plenty of questions--a good teacher has heard them all!  Share your dreams and goals with them.

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

What are some of your short-term goals?

What are some of your long-term goals?

What are you (the student) willing to do to achieve them?

What needs or support do you need from the teacher?
