Your first lesson is free. I offer a trial lesson for free so that prospective students can decide if they’d like to enroll.

Availability and Scheduling

When I schedule a new student for weekly lessons, I take into account several things: the distance to the student’s house, travel time from the previous student’s house to the next student’s house, and other factors. Your lesson may be scheduled for 3 pm, but it could also be scheduled for a time like 3:10 or 3:15 pm, based on travel time for me as the teacher. I will be straightforward and specific about the lesson time when scheduling the lesson with the parents.

How the Lessons Work

I teach lessons exclusively in students’ homes. In a typical 30-minute lesson, we will go over the student’s songs, music theory homework, and do fun exercises to reinforce the student’s musical growth. We will also play musical games that involve rhythm and music listening. I write down the student’s weekly assignments in a notebook for the student, provide any incentives the student has earned, and conclude the lesson.
