Registering for Private Lessons is contingent upon teacher approval and space available. Please use the Request a Private Lesson button to make an inquiry. Online registration is not available for Private Lessons.
Private lessons are offered, but space is limited. Typically, a child who is beginning between the ages of 5 and 6, we encourage the child to enroll in our Let’s Play Music classes. If the child has previous private lesson experience, the parent and teacher will decide if private lessons are a better fit for the child. The student (and parent if student is young) must be committed to daily practice and the student must be ready for the rigor of private lessons. Placement will be determined during an interview with the student and parent (if applicable).
The students are invited participate in two recitals each year: winter (late November or early December) and spring, (late April or early May). There is a recital fee of $25 due in November and April.
Tuition: There are 48 lessons throughout the calendar year, Please take note that tuition is divided into 12 equal monthly payments. Make-up lessons are given at the discretion of each individual instructor.
