A: I have a BFA in music from Purchase College (SUNY) along with 25 years of teaching and performing experience.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons?

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

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

A: What is my motivation to play/take lessons? What are my playing/learning goals? How much practice time am I willing to put in?
