Pool Lessons in Pennsylvania - 12-10-2007, 05:57 AM

I was wondering if there are any really good teachers or players that give lessons in and around the Harrisburg area? I would be willing to travel farther for lessons also. And would anybody have any idea what their rates might be.
Thanks, Jo

Karen Corr teaches out of Pete Fusco's room (The Spot) in Trevose, PA (Near Philly). She charges $100/hour. Jim Rempe teaches out of his home in Lake Ariel, PA (Near Scranton). He charges $125/hour with a 2 hour minimum. PM me if want more details or contact information.

PA Lessons - 12-10-2007, 07:31 AM

For more affordable lessons you could head about 1 hr over to NJ (if your up from the drive) and get lessons from:

Ed Hodan, Joe Frady, Al Lapena anyone of them for under $80/hr.

(Just telling you what I know in the area)

I don't know if he gives lessons or not but I thought Eddie Abraham was from PA. I never heard of him giving lessons - but I wouldn't see why not.


Ask around and good luck.

For those prices you could take a flight and go see Mark Wilson (St louis) or Stan Shuffett (ky) and still have money left over.

I traveled to Harrisburg to get lessons, leaving would be counterproductive!

Danny 'kid delicious' Basavich lives in souther jersey. I think it Manchester or Brick. He is not far from Philly. I believe he is charging $200 for a 3 hour lesson. You could meet somewhere. If you want a great lesson on fundementals when Scott Lee is in your don't miss out on a chance to grab him. I took a lesson from Frady once and wasn't impressed. Nice guy, but, we were not on the same wave length. Hodan is good. I don't get the impression he is very interested in teaching. I think he would rather play. He lives in Freehold NJ.

For some of the best lessons you could get anywhere I could get you some information. I took lessons from a local gentleman who has as much if not more knowledge of the game than anyone in central pa. Great lessons and extremely affordable. PM me if interested in a phone number.

Thanks
Dave

I'm pretty sure DiamondDave is talking about Fred. Yes Fred it the best teacher around here.

If you are in the Harrisburg area and looking for lessons. He's the man. Very well respected player in his younger years and has an abundance of knowledge. Anyone can pm me also that would like Fred McCann's phone number.
