$350 per musician for the first hour, and an additional $250 per musician for each additional hour. Small and large ensembles are also available. Repertoire can be tailored to the unique needs of each event upon inquiry.
I love teaching music; by which I mean by that I provide knowledge and tools for a person to develop their musical skills. I find a personalized approach for each student to understanding and developing with their instrument and the musical elements at hand. That said, sometimes there is a well-worn path that leads most directly to desired results, and so in that case we’ll take that one. For whichever person is seeking a further understanding of music, I hope to always be able to provide some useful insight for their own musical journey.
I teach guitar, voice, and ukulele lessons for learners at all levels, and offer beginning piano lessons. Single lessons are available at $60 for 30 minutes, or $100 for 55 minutes. No one will be turned away for a lack of funds. I require that students maintain a regular lesson schedule. In my experience, this helps the student focus and deepen in their learning much more quickly and effectively.
I believe that perfect practice makes perfect, but also that improvisation is the platform on which all musical identity is formed; that said, you will only get better through time with your instrument, whatever it may be. In regards to practice, I’ve found 3 essential building blocks for every musician; regular practice, focused practice, and play. These 3 things are the foundation of my curriculum and I have found that those who practice this excel steadily and surely in their music.
Cancellation must be made 48 hours in advance. Cancellations made in less than 48 hours ahead of time will be charged a fee of 25%. Cancellations made in less than 24 hours ahead of time will be charged a fee of 100%. If you send me a email or text message or voice mail in regards to a cancellation, then I have probably not received it; if I do not confirm having received your communication, then to my knowledge the event is still booked, and you will still be liable for any applicable cancelation fees.
