Gotfong Music Lessons

Coming soon somewhere on Washington St. is something new! (near 4th or 5th on the east side.. forgot to note the address). Not a nail salon or dry cleaner, but music instruction! In their studio or in your home. A novel idea that will probably leave many Hoboken residents dumbfounded. Huh? Piano? Drums? What do you mean? OMG!

I tried setting up a drum set in my spare room a few years ago. Wasn’t a very smart idea when the girl living below me sent her 6’8″ bruiser boyfriend up to complain. He could probably have used my drumsticks as toothpicks. I immediately sold the set and turned that room into a massage studio instead. Much better way to relieve tension.

Actually, Fong is a last name of Chinese origin (suprise!) and the rent isn’t as high as it might seem (happily, another suprise). At 20 lessons a week (averaging 4 hours a day for 5 days per week), our costs are recouped and we’ll actually be further ahead than in the D.C. area we’re relocating from.
Sorry, but we don’t offer tuba lessons on fire escapes–yet.
(As for the window artwork, thank my 7 year old; it was our second day in town, the weekend of the Hoboken Arts/Music Festival. My husband rolled his marimba out on the sidewalk in front of our studio window and played for 3 hours to a very great response. It was all we could do on 1 hour’s notice.)

How many music lessons do you need to book to afford rents on Washington St. I think if this guy spent 16 hours a day, 7 days a week, he wouldn’t survive with that location.

Go ahead and slide this into the doomed category.

If this sign is any indication of the quality of music lessons, there might be a slight problem.

I am very interested in Tuba lessons on my fire escape… is there a city ordinance against this?

Is there relevance to that name, Gotfong? I am a music idiot, so if if there is meaning behind that, I am curious to know.
