Spread the Word

To those of you in my area. (You know who you are, and you probably know how to contact me.) I have been giving it some thought, and I've decided to start teaching piano from my home again. I haven't done that for a while, because I felt I had too many little disruptions to be able to provide a quiet, learning environment. However, things have changed somewhat. Most of my children are old enough, now to be able to stay clear of my piano room for a time on their own. I have made a bargain with my oldest daughter to keep the others out of my hair. She will make one dollar a lesson, to do so. We REALLY need to extra income, so any help you might give to spread the word would be appreciated. FYI, I have an Associates Degree in Music Education, with piano as my major instrument. (Yes, believe it or not, I can actually play pretty well. Any flubs you may have heard from me in public are mostly due to horrific nerves.) I can teach beginning, intermediate, or semi-advanced piano. My lessons will also include simple music theory as we go. I plan to teach out of my home, and there will be recitals twice a year. Anyway, if you, or anyone you know of (in my area) would be interested, I'd appreciate the referral. And as I said, I'm not big on putting my contact info on the web in general, but if this applies to you, you probably already know how to get ahold of me.

Thanks a million!

how much are you charging renae? i know a couple of people who are going to be at loose ends when the current edwardsville ward piano teachers bail. and i'm sure they can get in touch with the other students from their prospective teachers. let's get this party started!

Renae said...

I'm looking for $12 per 1/2 hour lesson. Wish me luck!

Brad Carter said...

Good luck, Renae! That's about the same price I payed for lessons for my two kids. Too bad I'm thousands of miles away or maybe I'd start them up again.

I just finished reading every single word in your blog. Thanks for the entertainment!

Renae said...

Every single word?! Dang, I don't even know what to say to that. I feel honored. I hope you didn't die of boredom.

"Renae for Dummies"

That sounds like the mail order service you used to get married, Bruce.

Bruce said...

I might be interested for Shannon- I don't have a piano though?? What could I get her to practice on?? A keyboard?

Renae I wished that I lived closer and I'd ask ya to teach me. I didn't get to continue with piano lessons after middle school and I've always regretted it.

Hope all is well with ya'll.

Love, dana

Thanks Renae, Liz, Bruce, and Brad... Wow I feel like bursting out in song. Perhaps an emo-funk cover of Can You Feel the Love Tonight! Is Brad a Sever? He sure sounds like one! :)
