Lesson Information & Rates
Because each student has unique learning needs, I offer lessons in 15, 30, and 45-minute sessions as a student progresses in proficiency. Lessons are given in two "semesters" throughout the year: a 34-week schedule which runs simultaneously with the school calendar, and a summer semester with your choice of length.
School Year Semester:
(See Policy Statement for full details).
The School Year Semester begins in mid-August and generally reflects the local school calendar for holidays and breaks, totaling 34 weeks in length. Students will receive a lesson each week during this term. The total cost for the semester is divided into a registration fee and four equal payments due the first lesson of August, October, January, and March. Families with multiple children registered receive a 5% discount on the second child.
15-minute lessons: Total cost of $490
$50 registration fee and four payments of $110.
30-minute lessons: Total cost of $962.
$50 registration fee and four payments of $228.
45-minute lessons: Total cost of $1370.
$50 registration fee and four payments of $330.
The Summer Semester is taught during the summer months and is the perfect way to keep up your child's interest and ability. You can sign up for any number of lessons depending on your schedule. The full amount is due on the first lesson.
Recitals are an important way to build confidence and reward hard work. Students will be offered the opportunity to participate in a fall and spring recital each school year.
Knowing how far you've progressed is an important asset to becoming a better musician. In order to facilitate this, an evaluation of each student will be sent out at the end of the fall and spring semester.
