Beginner Piano Lessons are available in Birmingham, AL | Chelsea, AL at a summer special reduced rate of $50 for the introductory month for a limited trial time, effectively as of June 1st, 2011.
I called my friend and he said it would be $35 per half hour for house calls (more if out of range), and Chelsea is out of range for him it seems, since he’s moved to the Crestwood area. So anyway, I thought I would offer an affordable counter-deal (sort of a summer special), which is Fret Zero piano lessons for beginners for an introductory trial month rate of $50 the first month with no obligation to continue. After people’s first month if they decide they like the lessons it goes up to the normal $100 a month.
About me as a piano player:
I started playing around when I was 15 or so. Up until recently I was taking lessons with a classical pianist by the name of Patrick Williams (son of John Williams, but not the famous composer). I’m 28 now. I enjoy playing on the piano at church and would love to share my knowledge of the piano with others who are looking to get into the instrument. I’m not a stuffy teacher. Guitar is my primary instrument, though I also play piano, ukulele, baritone ukulele, and bass guitar quite regularly.
This deal would have certain driving restrictions of course and lessons would probably be at a nearby church. I’m sure there will also be time restrictions with this as well, but if people are free to meet earlier in the day as they may be in the summer, it should work well. There may be a registration fee of $10-25 per semester, depending on the church / location.
Anyway, if you or your friends are interested in this offer, just have them call me (Zac) at (205) 910-8053 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will check with the pianist in my praise & worship band when I get a chance to see if he might want to work with me offering lessons as well.
Students would need Alfred’s Basic Piano Method, Book 1 and of course access to a piano and / or keyboard. The kids can get the children’s version and the adults the adult version. Also, as the piano as two clefs, the bass clef and the treble clef, some flash cards may be helpful for study. You might also want to check for some free or cheap music apps on your smart phone if you have one. A lot of modern keyboards have a built-in display of the notes being played with both clefs though, which is super helpful. Some keyboards even light up to show you where to play.
Don’t end up like this:
