I’d teach for free if I could, but I have bills to pay. I like to keep things simple, and here’s the structure I found most beneficial to my students.
Online: $90 per month, for four (4) 30 minute lessons or $180 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. This is by far the most affordable way to learn!
In-Studio: $100 per month, for four (4) 30 minute lessons or $200 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. (Limited availability)
What does it cover?
Your tuition reserves your time with me. It is yours, and yours alone. 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.” I also provide most of the music you’ll need at no additional cost. If you’re an online student, you’ll have to print it, but most often, I do provide it. However, more advanced students will have to purchase concertos, and other solo repertoire.
When is it due?
All tuition is due on the first of the month. I allow a 10-day grace period, after which a late fee of $5 per week, or any part thereof, is assessed.
I can send an invoice if you prefer, and they are sent between the 23rd and 25th of each month.
How do I pay tuition?
I accept PayPal, cash if you’re in person, and if you’re a tech-junkie like I am – even crypto-currencies.
Sure! If you set up automatic payments, I offer a $5 per month discount – saving you the hassle of remembering to pay tuition, and me the time of sending an invoice.
I offer a discount for paying ahead for 2 or more months – 10% off your total tuition for the each of the months you pay ahead.
Cash at the first lesson will also net you a $5 discount.
