Every student learns differently, has different levels of experience and has different goals as a player and a musician. Getting to know my students and understanding these points are always my first goals when starting lessons with a new student.
I have been teaching music lessons since 2006 both independently and in lessons studios. In 2007 I moved to Boston and acquired my degree from Berklee College of Music. There I graduated with a BAA with a dual major in Guitar Performance and Contemporary Writing/Production.
My lessons last at least 1 hour, take place in my students homes (I travel to you) and pricing varies depending on distance from my home. Starting price is 60$ per hour lesson.
Previous to teaching, I started working as a secretary at a local lessons studiowhere I also studied. My responsibilities included managing schedules and booking lessons for all teachers at that studio (at most up 12 teachers) for weekly lessons. I began teaching in that studio during my senior year of high school.
I've had the pleasure of working with a varierty of students of different ages, experience levels and backgrounds. I've worked with students as young as 5, who's parent's wanted to expose their child to music at a young age, and as old as 70 years old, a man who had a always played but wanted to sharpen his skills upon entering into retirement.
Just this past summer I am proud to say that I sent 5 of my private students off to college for music at Temple University, Full Sail University and Berklee College of Music!
Depending on your skill level and what you are interested in learning, know what you'd like to get out of lessons when looking for a teacher. For myself, and fellow musician friends who also teach professionally agree, a student who is clear on what they want to learn make the best students. That's not to say that a love and genuine interest in music isn't enough. Make sure you feel like you gel with your teacher. A comfortable honest repoire always yeilds the best results.
Although it is important to set goals and know what you'd like to learn, students and parents should know that they have enough time to dedicate to their instrument. It is a study and a discipline. Practice time is of the utmost importance! My best experiences teaching have always been with students who spent the entire week practicing what we covered at the previous lesson and who come in with lots of questions and ideas on that subject.
