When comparing the price of lessons at other schools, we recommend that you consider some of the following: Are the teachers experienced, or are they new to the field? Are they up to date on modern music and education, or are they stuck in the past? Does it really help you to have lessons in your home, or does going to a separate location actually make the lessons better?

Online lessons

Using the same teachers and concepts of our in-person lessons, we are also happy to offer online lessons for students who for one reason or another cannot come to our studio. Lessons are offered in 30, 45, and 60 minute intervals, and scheduling is at the discretion of the teacher and student. Lessons will be conducted using Skype or Facetime.

Available lesson intervals:
30 minute lesson: $33
45 minute lesson: $48
60 minute lesson: $65

Group lessons

The group setting is ideal for adult beginners who are looking for a stress free, fun environment in which they can learn about music as well as interact with other interested adults. We offer group lessons in ten week semesters starting the first week of March, June and September. Each class of the ten is an hour long and consists of between 4-6 adult students. Beginner and intermediate level classes are both offered depending on enrollment. Beginner classes will focus on technique, note reading, ear training, and duet and group playing. Intermediate level class will continue the education given in the first semester while adding more repertoire based on the interests of the students. End goal is to give students a start to their musical interests in a non-traditional setting. Although group participation requires a certain amount of input from every member, no students are forced to perform in front of others if they do not want to. Many opportunities are provided for students to learn in "private" (ie with headphones at a keyboard or practice at home) as well as in the group setting. Group lessons are designed to be a safe place for beginner and intermediate students to learn and have fun with music.

$200 per student for ten week session
One hour long weekly class
Class size is between 4-6 people.
