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.

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. This is by far the most affordable way to learn!

In-Studio: $100 per month, for four (4) 30 minute lessons or $220 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)

In your home: $130 per month, for four (4) 30 minute lessons or $260 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. 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.” 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?

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.

If it is late, and you have not otherwise contacted me to make arrangements, I assess a $5 late fee. This is per week, or any part of a week.
