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

We start by showing them how to use their hands with their instrument, finger numbers, positions.  Then we introduce reading music.  Theory is included in every lesson.  We use standard curriculua and proceed in an orderly manner.  We also introduce songs the student is interested in playing as extra-curricula.

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

Most of the teachers have music degrees and also education degrees.  We all perform in our free time, such as being on our church's worship team.  We total many years of music teaching experience.  At least half of us play or sing in groups that are hired to perform around the Midlands area.

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

$20 per lesson or $86 per month (4 or 5 lessons)

How did you get started teaching?

The owner is from a musical famliy and has been involved in music sine a preschooler.  Love of music runs deep, along with a gift for teaching and love for chidren.  It's a match.

What types of students have you worked with?

Most of our students are average people, but we have a high number of students who are on the autism spectrum.  Teachers are kind and patient with special needs students.  We also  have quite a few gifted students we love to work with and find ways to challenge them.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

At our last recital several students played pieces they themselves had composed.  I don't know if anything is more rewarding for a teacher than that.

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

Come to us!  We cover all the areas a student needs to become a successful musician.  We are disappointed that many other teachers and studios in the area neglect technique and music theory.

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

Does this teacher teach more than plain playing?  Will I learn theory? Technique? Expression?  Will the teacher let me get away with poor timing or will I be corrected?
