Waiting List

The best way to stay informed about openings is to register on the waiting list. (This is free and is the best way to join us.)

Trial Lessons

  • Usually held on consecutive  weeks
  • Allows you and the teacher to see if your child is ready
  • Allows time to build a rapport between teacher and student
  • See how your child is enjoying the process of learning and practicing
  • Fee for trial lessons $160 (includes 2 individualized 30 minute lessons plus all materials)
  • You will need an instrument at your home for lessons and practice.  See our recommendations.
  • After the 2 trials, we would mutually decide whether to join for the semester

Why semester billing?

We make a commitment of time for your child and provide all materials and music.   This includes any new sheet music we may purchase to match your child’s personal interest.  By committing to us, we can commit to you and accomplish a lot – dependent on student participation.  All lessons are private and customized towards your child’s interests and abilities.




September 2017 –  June 2018 Semester & Tuition

  • First day of lessons:  Friday September 8, 2017
  • $225/month automatic payment plan (September – June)

Holidays 2017-2018

We are usually closely matched to the NYC Public School schedule as announced by the Department of Education.  However not all are the same.  See below.  These days are no lesson days.

Summer 2018

  • Summer lessons booked individually at a special rate of $65/lesson.
  • This allows you to customize your schedule to your holidays.

About Recitals

  • There is no charge for attending Recitals though it is highly recommended and is a mini concert production.  There is usually a huge growth spurt emotionally, intellectually and mentally in students who take part.
  • Here’s an article about Why Music Recitals Are Like Life Skills 101.

    Hi! I am an opera singer and graduate of Juilliard Pre-College and then Oberlin Conservatory. I live in Park Slope, and would love to build up my studio more. Is there a way I could get on your list of recommended teachers? I’d be happy to meet with you/ sing for you if you would like.

    Thank you,

    Libby Shoup
