FAQs


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

We set up the first trial lesson for 50% off. There are no commitments necessary beyond that point. We assess the student's ability, past experience and their desires for what they want out of the instrument. We then design a path forward that will guide them to getting what they want out of the instrument.


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

You can read about all of our individual teacher's biographies on our website.

How did you get started teaching?

My name is Eric and I'm the co-owner of Main Street Music. I started teaching when I was in college completing my degree in music education. I went into college thinking that I wanted to become a school teacher but instead found my passion with one on one instruction. Individual instruction allows the teacher to completely customize the lessons to fit each student's unique strengths and weaknesses. This enables the student to progress at a rate that is just unattainable in a classroom setting. I've been teaching for almost 10 years and I've loved every minute.


What types of students have you worked with?

Main Street Music provides lessons for students of all ages and ability levels. Whatever genre you want to study we can help you. We've also worked extensively with students with disabilities.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We've recently expanded our studio and we're now operating a space with 5 lesson rooms and 11 teachers. We're extremely proud of the progress that we've made and that our students continue to make on a regular basis.


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

Spend a little time thinking about what it is that you want out of the instrument. Depending on your goals the process of achieving them might be easily within reach or years down the road. Our teachers are honest with you about how long it will take to achieve these goals. Above all, the most important aspect of taking lessons is practicing on somewhat of a regular basis.


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

What instrument are you most enthusiastic about?

What styles of music do you like?

Do you have the time to practice regularly?

What day of the week is ideal to commit to for a weekly lesson?
