Lesson Rates

 

  • Four 30 min. lessons per month - $130
  • Four 45 min. lessons per month - $195
  • Four 1 hour lessons per month - $260

Tuition is due in advance by the 3rd of the month.  Some months have five lessons which make up the difference for months with holidays (like Christmas).  Music books and fees for activities like MTNA theory exams, etc. are additional and not part of tuition.  Lessons continue all year.  If a student should need to stop lessons, please give 30 days notice before the final lesson.

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

All levels are welcome.  Students do not need to audition to take lessons; however, those who have previous piano background will need to do an audition for "placement".  If a student has the time to make a commitment to practice, literature can go up into very advanced work (sonatas, pieces by Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, Bartok, etc.)

Young students with no piano background need to be able to sit and pay attention for 30 minutes and be starting to learn to read.  Knowing the alphabet and knowing the numbers and the concepts of addition and subtraction is a plus.  

SOMETHING TO PRACTICE ON IS ESSENTIAL!!!  There are many excellent keyboards that are perfectly good to start a beginning student (or even a serious student without the space for a big piano). Keyboards need to be touch sensitive. You need all 88 keys. A console to anchor the instrument is very good. A pedal like a real piano - not a flat "digital" pedal is very important.
