PRIVATE LESSONS

Music for Life!   All are welcome!

Why taking lessons is so important to a student's development:  Music-making builds connections in the brain, students set goals and achieve them, they learn about and play really great music, learn how to express themselves, be a good human, and so much more!


Performance Opportunities!

Music Competition!

Recording Opportunities!

Group Lessons!

Joyful Music Making!

Judgment Free Self Expression!

 

Everything You Need To Know:

Private lessons are taught year round on a weekly recurring schedule. Average billing allows your monthly tuition to remain the same each month regardless of the actual number of scheduled lessons in any one month. 


Dates the studio is closed (see below) are taken into account in your average billing and are configured to assure everyone has the same number of scheduled lessons.


New students may begin at any time during a month with the 1st payment being prorated.


Please understand that when you are placed on the schedule, that time slot is reserved for your use. Therefore, students must pay the full monthly tuition regardless of attendance.Make-up lesson times are dependent on another time being available. Often these times are only available due to another student needing to cancel a lesson.  Open times will be available to view in your student portal, during the school year it may not be possible to find one; as a result, make-up lessons cannot be guaranteed. To help this process work, you must to give the studio advanced notice of your cancellation to make your regular time available as a make-up time for others.  No credits or refunds are given for missed lessons. 


The nature of summertime is more flexible, and we should be able to help you if some creative scheduling is needed. If the teacher must cancel a scheduled lesson, it will be made up as close to the regular lesson time as possible.Thirty days notice is required should you decide to discontinue lessons.


* Monthly Tuition:

30 minute lessons - $100.00

45 minute lessons - $150.00

60 minute lessons - $200.00


Individual lessons - $30 per 1/2 hour


As students progress, the amount of material we try to cover increases. Advancing students can benefit from and are encouraged to consider longer lessons.


* The monthly tuition can be paid with Venmo, or check.  For a small fee, you can also pay with PayPal or set up a monthly payment on a preauthorized credit card.
