Lesson Fees

Trial Lessons

If you are just starting with me,

The first and second lesson is $65 (payable by cash or check).  

The fee covers the lesson and materials I will give you.   The first 2 weeks is where we decide whether there is a good fit mutually.

After that, lessons are payable in advance by semester.  If you are joining mid-semester, the fee is prorated.

Why semester billing?

I make a commitment of my time for your child and provide all the materials, music.  By committing to a 3 to 4 month session, we can accomplish a lot – dependent on student participation.  All lessons are private and customized towards your child’s interests and abilities.

Spring 2016 ends on June 18 2016- recital day!

Summer 2016 Semester

The Summer semester will begin on Thursday June 29 and run through Thursday August 11, 2016.

  • The semester tuition for private lessons is $400 per child plus a $50 materials fee which includes all materials, sheet music, books, and tools.
  • You will need to own your own instrument.  I can make recommendations.
  • This reserves your time slot with me.
  • There is no recital in the summer.
  • See more info on the summer here.


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 my students who take part.
  • Here’s an article about Why Music Recitals Are Like Life Skills 101.

Waiting List

I rarely get openings and I’m extremely grateful to have such a wonderful community of students and families.  The best way to stay informed is to register on my waiting list.


Upon signing up for lessons, you will receive a username and password for a student account and a parent account where you can make payments, see the lessons schedule and receive lesson notes, music files and sheet music.


You can pay securely online with your credit card or PayPal by logging into your account.  Alternatively, you can pay in cash, check or credit card at the lesson.

Upcoming Fall 2016 Semester

  • Starts on September 8, 2016, the first day of school
  • Holiday Music Salon – date and location to be determined
  • There is no recital until Jan/Feb of 2017
