Also, what are your opinions on these which I found in a phonebook? 1)Conservatory of Musical Arts 2)CrossRoads Music 3)Guitar Guild & Academy of Musical Arts 4)The Laboratory I chose whatever had noticeable advertisement (a picture, with a description of services). I would consider The Laboratory least because it is the farthest from where I live, although on second thought, I wouldn't be having lessons everyday. I realize that I could overlook worthwhile teachers this way, but it saves time because most list only name, location and phone number. 1)-claims to have instruct all instruments for high schools students, but neither trumpet nor brass is listed -I'm considering it because it has "a faculty of 35 professional and degreed musicians." 2)-has lessons for most instruments -it's close to where I live 3)-instructs all band instruments, in addition to others -gives the following information on lessons: $95 for four private, weekly lessons which are 30 minutes -pricing is on monthly basis -payment is due at first lesson, or before second lesson; you will be removed from scheduling, otherwise -one make-up lesson/month for cancellations, given adequate time beforehand 4)-I wrote it down because it had what I call "noticeable advertisement"
