Gift Screen grab 3

Occasionally I get asked about lessons as a present for someone’s Birthday or Christmas, so we have been providing gift vouchers for those requests over the last 10 years.

I just wanted to share with you, the new updated voucher that we have produced.  Pretty smart, even though I say so myself.

Vouchers can be bought for a certain amount of lessons and the card tells the recipient how many that is, not the amount of money that you have spent.

Different designs can be printed.

Lessons can be 30 or 60 minutes long.  The Student then contacts me to arrange a suitable time for those lessons.

Lessons can be Face to Face or via Skype or Facetime, whichever suits the student.

The cards have space for you to personalise them, and are posted to you for giving.

If you have someone who has expressed an interest in learning, then this is a great way to surprise them.

My number is 07736 471 861 or dave.saxteach@yahoo.co.uk

I look forward to hearing from you

Feel free to share this post with anyone that may be interested.

Yesterday I met up with my first new local student in Ryde.  Like me, she moved to the island only 3 weeks ago, and wanted to restart having clarinet lessons.  She has been playing for about 10 years and has reached a good standard, but took a break recently with moving house and looking for employment.

We had a good lesson and spent a lot of it, just getting her lip back into shape and working out how each of us work.  We are arranging further lessons in between Christmas and the New Year, and I am looking forward to helping her carry on making good progress and having fun at the same time.

The remote lessons via Skype and FaceTime are going well and the signal here is very good.

Someone said  recently that it is the  modern equivalent of Short wave radio school lessons that used to happen in places like the outback of Australia or Africa, when people lived to far away from schools to travel.

I think this is definitely the way forward, as it allows you to work with the teacher that you want, rather than having to work with someone purely because they are local, and for some students it means being able to have lessons rather than struggling on your own if there is no one local.IMG-8967

What do you think?  Why not get in touch to see if I can help you?

 

Best wishes
