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 For Kids

  • 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 $130 (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.

Adult Lessons

We now offer adult lessons.  These are at the same rates but will be billed monthly in advance.

  • 30 min – $65
  • 45 min – $98
  • 60 min – $130

We start with 2 trial lessons, usually a week apart.  This enables you and your teacher to build a rapport, work on something and see how it’s going.  After that, we move to monthly billing.


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 rate of $65/per 30 min 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.
