I have always kept my tuition at or below the average local “going rate” because I want to make music as accessible to students as possible. I know that, given my specialized skills in teaching children, I could charge more – but I don’t. I can’t. I just can’t bring myself to price it out of the reach of all but a few. When I was young, my mom couldn’t afford lessons – so it wasn’t until I was older, and had a job, that I had any private lessons. Heck – I’d teach for free if I could, I love what I do! That said – I still have to pay my bills.

Cost

Online: $85 per month, for four (4) 30 minute lessons or $160 per month for four (4) one-hour lessons. The occasional 5th lesson day (sometimes there are 5 Fridays, for example), I include at no extra charge.

What does it cover?

Your tuition reserves your time with me. I won’t give it out to anyone else. It also pays for the time I spend preparing for your lesson. For each private student, I spend about 30 minutes per week preparing their lessons – I don’t just show up and “wing it.”

When is it due?

If I don’t invoice you, and you’re in-studio or I visit you, it’s due at the first lesson of the month.

If I invoice you, I send it around the 25th of the month for the upcoming month. It’s due the first week of that month. For example, In October, I’ll send an invoice around the 25th, and it’s due the first week of November.

If you send it yourself, it’s due the first week of the month.
