Sorry to tell you but at the music stores in my area thats what every teacher makes.I get even more for house calls which I also do and its not BS regardless of what you think.Besides,almost all the students that have taken from someone else come to me lacking some part of learning to play that I dont get so my conclusion is they are not getting all the info they should be and thats about 95% of them.
What I do have is years of experience teaching and playing all types of music and teaching each student at their ability for progress.Unfortunately the older the students get,the more they think they know it all so teaching them young is the best way to to get them in the game while you make a living.This is always what you want,You make the money and they get the best available instruction.Everyone wins!Besides you completely misread the info in my post and how could I recommend anybody like you anyway.$65 an hour not half hour dipswitch!
