    He was very patient and worked with my daughter to rediscover what she enjoyed about playing violin.


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

Bowing  is ninety percent of playing, so that's  where we will start. Simple folk tunes are easy to remember and improvise on. Scaled and chords come next, but as you learn more tunes, they fall into place.

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

I taught students at several public schools and private institutions for several years.

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

😃If you come to me, lessons are twenty dollars.If I go to you the lessons are thirty dollars, as long as we are still in the five boroughs.

How did you get started teaching?

People who enjoyed my playing asked me to teach them or their children, or friends.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught pre-schoolers, Third through seventh grade, high school, and adults.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently my band, "The Ebony Hillbillies," and I, played several times at a private elementary school in Brookly, NY. The students there were able to receive personal attention on each of our instruments. Great fun.

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

Find someone who will start with the basics, and allow you to have some fun.

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

I think that students should understand that no matter what instrument you decide on, it will take more than a couple of weeks to achieve your goal, and that should try to give it your best for a while.
