Greetings, Students, Parents, and Prospective Students,
All of you know me as a private studio flute lessons teacher. What you may not know is that I also have three children who study musical instruments. Over the last decade while my children have been studying, I've learned about what it is like to be on the other side of the teacher-family relationship as a parent. Like you, I have some little pet peeves about some of the inconveniences that parents and caregivers face.
One thing that I find particularly difficult is that, when traveling to the teacher's home or studio, I don't know what to do with myself for the hour, if the teacher does not have a waiting area for parents. I can wait in my car, but this is not a good option during very hot or very cold weather. I could wait in a local coffee shop, but this adds to the cost of the lesson (you have to pay for your coffee!), and I do not want to add any unnecessary costs for our hard-working and committed parents.
To that end, I'd like you all to know that not only do I have a comfortable waiting area at both the Belleville and the Montclair locations, but I also have free coffee, tea, and WiFi, so that you can use your waiting time well.
I welcome all prospective students to come and give everything a try. Don't forget, the introductory 30-minute lesson is FREE, and for current students, you will recieve a FREE one-hour lesson if you refer a friend who signs up for a month of lessons. Studio, In-Home, and Skype lessons are all available for your convenience.
Best wishes, and keep making music!
