FAQs


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

My approach to teaching has always been to put the students needs first.  On lesson one I will assess any skill you already have and how we can building on this.  If you have no skills yet, that's okay too.  We will start with learning all the keys, notes, and chords, take homework with you so the next week will progress to the next step.  You've be surprised how many people think they have no ear for music when they really do, with the right teacher.  


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

PhD in Psychology 2007

Masters in Business Administration 2004

BA in Music 1984

45 years experience playing and singing music of all genres.  


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

It depends on how long the sessions are.   One hour, at my home studio will cost about $40 and 30 minutes will cost about $25.  Of course if I travel to you this price will increase depending on how far I have to travel.  I live near Woodlawn Lake.  


How did you get started teaching?

I started playing 50 years ago, when I was 11 year old.  We were poor so the cost of lessons was an issue.  I learned on my own and progress playing by ear for server years.  When I got into college in the 80's I decided to pursue my passion in music.  Over the past 50 years I've played in bands, taugh choir and bands and I've many young and older students.  I actually got started teaching while I was in college to support family while finishing my degree in music.
