FAQs


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

Since every student is different, we tailor the lessons to meet the student's needs and learning styles. We believe in developing the musician as a whole. Students study music theory, technique, stage presence while building confidence in their playing.


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

Teachers have a Bachelor's degree or are in the final year of completion. All teachers participate in continuing education and professional development on a ongoing basis. Our teachers have anywhere from 4-21 years of experience in teaching.


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

Briargrove Music Arts charges a flat-rate tuition year round. Most of the time, students receive four lessons per month. Quarterly, a fifth lesson occurs for which we do not charge extra. In the month of December, students will receive three lessons for the month and there are four lessons given in January. Tuition remains the same as we keep the same rate all year round.


What types of students have you worked with?

We teach students of all ages and backgrounds. We take students on piano as young as four and a half years old.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We are quite fond of our community performances. Our last two have been at Assisted Living communitites for the elderly. It brought great joy to teachers and students to share music and watch our senior audience really enjoying the performances.


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

Take the time to talk to the potential teacher about expectations and goals of both parties. Look for a teacher who is an effective communicator and has experience teaching different ages and levels as each one has specific needs. A "One size fits all" does not work most of the time. Young students need to be guided and taught how to effectively practice.


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

Be able to define your goals. Work toward realistic goals. Be prepared to attend lessons on time, regularly. Keep in mind that in order to reach your goals you will need to be diligent in your practice (a good teacher will be able to help you with targeted practice). Make sure you are ready to commit to that part.
