Does the Nigerian Prince Need Piano Lessons?

The other day I mentioned on Twitter that having been a piano teacher, I get the occasional spam email fishing for some personal info. Thought I'd share the latest one--this one's pretty typical. Perhaps I should start teaching private grammar lessons instead ;)



I'm Mr Kelly Freeman during my search for a music instrument lessons teacher that would always take my Daughter (Lara) and I found your advert.Your advert looks great and it is very okay to me since you specialize in the area I am seeking for her. My daughter will be coming to the United States of America before the ending of May for 2 Months. She is just 14yr Old and also a beginner,I want you to help me teach her music Lessons during her stay in the United States of America because i will not want her to less busy, i want her to engage in something to keep her busy during her stay.

So, kindly let me know your charges cost per week in order for me to arrange for the payment before she travels down to your country.I would also like to know if there is any Text Book you will recommend for her as a beginner so that she will be reading privately at home after the lesson during her stay.

Please Advise back on;

(1) Your charges per 1 hour twice a week for 2 Months?

(2) The Day and time you will be available to teach her During the week?

(3) Tuition address?

I will be looking forward to read from you soonest.

Best Regards,


--Yeah, I'll get right on that!
