for 45 and 60 minute lessons)
30 minute lesson: $140.00
45 minute lesson: $180.00
60 minute lesson: $220.00
In order to make progress, regular attendance at lessons is required. If a lesson must be rescheduled for a significant excuse, 24 hours notice is required; otherwise, there will be no refund for that lesson, and the lesson will not be rescheduled. Make-up lessons will be scheduled at the convenience of the teacher and the student, but should be rescheduled as soon as possible.
Regular practice is essential. Each teacher will assign specific work to be accomplished for the next lesson. Parents should assist younger students as much as possible, therefore, parents are always invited to lessons. Practice with your children. It’s important that they know this is important to you, and that you, too, have expectations of their progress. It is highly unlikely that a student will ever “have nothing to practice.” Help us to teach them effectively by taking part in their education. Be sure to attend their public performances, both through the Center for the Arts and any time they have an opportunity to perform publicly!
