Learning to play a musical instrument can be one of the most enriching experiences in life. The pleasure of producing music for the delight of others, or for personal enjoyment, is a powerful gift. While teaching oneself is possible, having an experienced teacher who provides a structured program of advancement is the best way of achieving musical goals in the shortest time.
Music lessons can be a challenge, however. The cost and time commitment needed for getting to and from lessons can be as much of a burden as the lessons themselves. This extra burden of expense and can seriously detract from the enjoyment and progress of learning to play the instrument itself. And the time spent traveling back and forth from home to lesson could be much better spent practicing the instrument, rather than doing the commute.
The solution is finding a teacher who can do the lessons at your own home. For parents of children who are learning a musical instrument, this solution offers many advantages. The parent can be engaged with household tasks while the child is taking their lesson, rather than wasting time driving struggling with traffic and worrying about being late to the lesson , idly waiting for the lesson to end while chores at home are left unfinished, are all eliminated. At- home lessons can also be easier and less stressful on the child in the familiar surroundings of home rather that in a strange environment as well. Taking lessons at home means the child can associate music with his normal life and familiar things, making music a part of the family, as it were.
Eliminating the cost of travel, and time lost from other activities and needed chores at home lessons can be just more economical, and learning and practicing easier when music becomes part of the normal household routine, rather than the ordeal of a commute. At home lessons can make learning to play an instrument easier, faster and more enjoyable for everyone.

Why I work well with kids?
I have worked with many children in various age groups in my previous professions. As a sneaker salesman, and a merchandise sales man for a traveling musical, I often worked hand in hand with children to help them find and purchase things that fulfilled their desires, as well as their parents requirements. I also have much experience tutoring and teaching piano to my younger siblings and cousins.
