FAQs


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

Start with description of a scale, getting to know the shapes, then how to make chords from notes in the scale, and the functions of different chords in a piece of music. 

Depending on what you want to focus on we can go onto learning songs, or improvisation, different styles, etc.


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

Been teaching lessons for 6 months mostly to friends or friends of friends. Also an education officer at House of Commons Coop!


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

$15/hr because I'm still learning the best way to teach!


How did you get started teaching?

I've been playing music for almost 15 yrs and I realized that I love showing my friends how music works; so they understand the components of any song, so they can learn and experiment for themselves and then we can play together!


What types of students have you worked with?

Friends and acquaintences :)


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I traded Bass Guitar lessons for lessons on figure drawing and faces and it's a awesome new hobby/obsession! <3


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

Learning some theory can go such a long way towards putting all the pieces together and making music make sense so you can learn effectively, even on your own!


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

What kind of things do you want to learn? Do you enjoy learning enough to keep practicing on your own??
