A Chat with Stringer Music
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My services as a “certified” piano instructor means that I hold a pedagogical certification along with my bachelors of music degree in piano. Very few instructors hold these credentials. Each lesson is at least 30 minutes in length.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I have an extensive library of piano literature to complement the required material that the student must purchase. I use various method books for students depending on the students level of proficiently. Most materials that a student must purchase is under $30.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I am a professional performing artist with over 40 years of experience. About 20 years ago I decided to go back to school to be trained to teach piano and voice with real credentials. Nothing gives me more pleasure than teaching others how to learn to play piano or sing. Seeing growth is awesome.
What do you love most about your job?
Taking a student from where they are, whether it is a beginner or an advanced artist and seeing them grow with a talent that turns out to be lifelong skills.
