Lesson Fees

[updated October 7, 2015]

Trial Lessons

If you are just starting with me,

The first and second 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.

Fall 2015 Semester

The Fall semester began on Wednesday September 9 and runs through Monday December 21, 2015.

  • The semester tuition is $897 per child.
  • This reserves your time slot with me.
  • There is a 10% early bird discount if you pay in full by June 30, 2015.
  • There is also a $35 material fee so I can buy the music and books your child needs.
  • Recitals are twice a year usually held in January and June.

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.

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.
