I recently got an e-mail out of the blue from a lady in France needing a bassoon teacher for her high school son who will be in NYC for 2 months soon. This was sent to me by BridgetoMusic.com.
I was wondering if anyone on this forum has had experience with this BridgetoMusic service - I e-mailed the lady, giving her my lesson fee, and asked if her son is playing a German or French system bassoon. She never answered that question, but wrote back that she needed to know my personal contact info, so a business friend of her husband's will write me a check for the FULL amount (2 lessons a week for 2 months). Since I don't know my schedule (freelance) for the 2 months mentioned, I wrote her that I would prefer her son contact me when he gets to the city, and that he should pay me per lesson, in case there are times when I will not be available, etc. Waiting to hear her response.
I'm hoping this is all legit, but I'm a bit wary of a stranger contacting me out of the blue from this service. I'll appreciate any advice from anyone who has had experience with BridgetoMusic.
Thanks in advance for any future response.
