Starting off as a self-taught musician was a wonderful thing for me. I fell in love with idea of making melodies from notes on our keyboard at home. Upon joining band in elementary school, and then beginning percussion in high school, I was able to get away with the little music theory knowledge and playing ability that I had. But, as much as I would recommend getting involved with music, watching YouTube videos, etc., my playing ability never reached a higher potential without the help of teachers, instructors, and advisors. These people will help you set goals, monitor your progress, adjust lessons to meet your needs, and shape you into a well-rounded, innovative musician.
One of the things I love most about lessons is the ability to adapt to each student and provide materials and knowledge necessary to push them on the path toward their goals. Goals play a big part in my teaching. Students will be able to set clear goals with plans to practice towards them, and these are monitored on a weekly basis.

In most cases, Iessons are available for $15 per half hour lesson, or $25 per hour lesson. The rates may vary depending on where the lessons will be held due to travel expenses (i.e. student lives in a different city); however, I try my best to maintain this affordable rate. Lessons are offered weekly, or bi-weekly depending on preference. In some cases, students may want to do multiple lessons a week (i.e. two half hour lessons). Although this is harder, it is possible in certain settings, and will require additional planning.
These are never a problem, but for good measure, I keep it in writing for the sake of students and parents.
