Daily practice is essential to making music lessons worthwhile. Incoming students should understand that they are committing to practicing 6 days a week: 15-20 minutes for beginners, 30-40 minutes for intermediate players, 60+ minutes for advanced musicians. I give all my students a detailed assignment chart each week, with a step-by-step plan. Eventually they gain the tools to organize their own practice sessions by thinking in “chunks,” doing timed intervals, and prioritizing practice areas.
PLEASE NOTE: I will be taking a sabbatical for the 2016-2017 academic year for a special project. See you in September 2017!
Semester tuition based on
•$40/30-minutes for beginners or
•$50/45-minutes for intermediate students
•$25 materials/events fee per semester
•one free lesson per semester
There are no makeups for missed lessons, but in case of scheduling conflicts, students may use the “swap list” to arrange a swap with another student for that week. On the rare occasion that I have to cancel, I will issue a refund.
•$70/60 minutes payable per lesson
I am available for private lessons Monday through Friday from 12-8pm. Currently my schedule is fully booked, but new openings do come up at the beginning of each school year. Summer is a good time to take a few lessons and find out if it’s a good fit before committing to the full semester.
