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.
