About six months ago, I was giving a friend $25 Alexander Technique lessons. He bargained me down to giving him half lessons for $12.50. And this guy was my most difficult student. He didn’t want to do many of the things I suggested. He argued with me through much of the lesson. He took phone calls. He didn’t do the homework assignments.
By contrast, those students who’ve paid my full rate of $100 a lesson were easy to work with. They listened to everything I said. They did everything I asked. They got the most out of the lessons while many of my cheaper students didn’t get much out of their lessons because they didn’t respect the work as I was giving it away to them at such bargain rates.
