About this pro

We provide quality lessons by people who know the instruments they teach.  Our goal is to provide students with the musical instruction they need, not just the instruction they'll pay for.

We are centrally located in Worthington, with ample parking, and well within walking distance to several public schools.  Located on High St, we are easy to find and easy to get to.

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

Our first step with a new student is to find out their current level or experience so that we can adequately address their needs.  We then discuss availabilty and schedule an initial lesson.  That first lesson is used to evaluate a student's ability first hand and assess what direction lessons should take.  When the first lesson is through we discuss the lesson with the student and their parent, when necessary, and schedule further lessons.

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

The owner of T&G's Music Studios has a degree in Violin Performance and performs regularly in the Columbus area in several Irish Folk groups.  

He has been teaching for over 10 years and continues to grow his own student base through outreach in the local schools.  His belief is that Private and Public Music Education should work hand in hand to provide students with a complete experience.

All the teachers at T&G's are people that the owner has interviewed and received recommendations on.  They are skilled and capable musicians that have passed his approval.

That said, the owner does monitor lessons and interactions to ensure that teachers and students are progressing and growing cooperatively.

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

Most lessons are 30 minutes long and cost $25.  Payment is made on a monthly basis.  Teachers determine what abscenses are acceptable, but missed lessons are rescheduled first before determining whether they are credited to the next month.  

How did you get started teaching?

The owner started teaching privately in college at Ohio University.  After he graduated he continued to teach while pursuing performance opportunities with local ochestras, wedding venues, and alternative bands.

Teaching is something he finds very rewarding.  A student does not need to aspire to perform professionally to want to play well, and it's a wonderful experience to provide another person with the skills necessary to enjoy music privately or through public performance.

What types of students have you worked with?

6 to 60, begninner to advanced, Classical, Jazz, Folk, Rock, individuals, and groups.  T&G's teachers have experience playing and teaching almost every style of music.

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

Personal connections are important.  If your gut feeling tells you to trust them, then give it a shot.  If your gut says "no", then move on to the next.  It's important that you trust the person you will be stuck in a room with for 30 minutes, once every week.

Also, be ready to work.  Teachers can't make you better, only you can make you better.  If you don't put in the time to practice what your teacher gives you then you will never make the progress you want.
