I love to watch students progress through weekly lessons. There is nothing more satisfying for me than to see the student learn and progress.
Very personable, knowledgeable and suggests ideas to motivate you to play more musically. Always excited to teaching me during the lesson!
I establish a starting point and the student and I will discuss a learning plan from there. I recommend time honored traditional methods and use Suzuki and Traditional repertoire

I do not have a preference. I will work out payment details with the student and family. I encourage ages 12 and older to have a 45 minute lesson. My fee is $40. For students aged 6-11, a 30 minute lesson is recommended. My fee is $30
After earning a bachelor's degree in 1984, Mr. Laskey began teaching strings and band instruments in public schools in Souderton and the Norristown, PA school districts. He has been a music educator for 35 years.
Mr.Laskey has taught ages 8 through adult. He taught at Montgomery County Community College, Chamber Strings and String Lessons. He retired from public school teaching and his adjunct position after 35 years. He is building a private studio now!
Mr.Laskey is very excited to welcome students to his home music studio! He is particulatly interested in students that want to progress.
Students should at least own a beginning level instrunent to get started. Students should be willing to practice at home. Younger students will work on traditional and/or Suzuki repertoire. Older students will work on scales, etudes and time honored string solo repertoire.
Students may choose to participate in Zoom music lessons now and possibly switch to in-person lessons in Mr. Lasjey's studio once it is safe to do so in person.
