HOW LONG ARE LESSONS?  

Our group lessons are 50 minutes long. Private lessons are 30 minutes long. We recommend starting with group lessons. There are numerous benefits to learning music in a small group setting.

GROUP MAKEUP LESSONS

Missing a lesson now and then is inevitable. Group lesson students can drop into any of our regularly scheduled group lessons should they miss their scheduled group lesson.

PRIVATE MAKEUP LESSONS

Every private student who is currently enrolled in lessons has an account with LessonMate included in the price of tuition. LessonMate is a premium feature offered through a secure website where teachers create and post the students' makeup lessons. The teacher may include audio files, notes, PDFs and instructional videos. Check out this LessonMate video below for more information.  

DO I PAY FOR MISSED PRIVATE LESSONS?  

If your teacher misses and we don't have a sub for you, absolutely not. If you cannot make it to lessons, your teacher, during your regularly scheduled time, will compile a complete lesson for you via your LessonMate account included in your tuition. A link will be emailed to you. No missed lessons!  

DO WE HAVE THE SAME TIME EVERY WEEK?  

YES! You have the same time and day each week. We know how important having a convenient time is for our busy parents!  

CAN I CHANGE MY TIME ONCE I START MY LESSONS?  

We are happy to change your lesson time to another permanent time that’s available.  

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO A FREE TRIAL LESSON?     

YES! You can take one trial lesson on the instrument of your choice to get a taste of what lessons will be like!    

CAN I TAKE LESSONS WITH MY FRIENDS?    

YES! This is one of the MANY benefits of learning in a small group! 

WHEN CAN I START LESSONS?    

Music lessons, music classes, band rehearsals, etc., are all ongoing, so you can start anytime!   

WHY IS MY TUITION THE SAME EVERY MONTH WHEN MONTHS LIKE DECEMBER & July ONLY HAVE 2 OR 3 Lessons?    

Your tuition amount is averaged out over the year, tallied per lesson, allowing for holidays and breaks. Most months have 4 or 5 lessons whereas in December and July there may be only 2 or 3. The averaged tuition makes it easier for you to know that your account will be charged the exact same amount each month. 

DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?      

YES! All our families are set up to pay for their lessons each month on an auto-pay schedule using either a credit/debit card or a direct debit from their checking account.     

CAN I SWITCH TO ANOTHER INSTRUMENT MID-MONTH?    

YES! If you begin the month with, let’s say, piano, and decide mid-month that you would rather study voice, it’s simply a matter of coordinating new lesson times/new teacher with the front desk. 

CAN I TAKE BOTH GROUP AND PRIVATE LESSONS?

YES! We have monthly and bi-monthy packages.  

CAN I TAKE more than one lesson type? For example: VOice + piano?

YES! You may be able to have the same Instructor for multiple types of lessons, or you may need to schedule with multiple Instructors.

CAN I WATCH MY CHILD’S LESSON?  

YES! We have an open door policy and parents are welcome to watch their children during lessons.

IS THERE A MINIMUM NUMBER OF LESSONS THAT I HAVE TO TAKE?  

We recommend that a student take at least 8 lessons or two months worth in order to see some progress and to see if it's a good fit. This is what we recommend, but it is not required. Keep in mind that the school does require a 30-day written notice to withdraw.  

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IF I WANT TO STOP MY CHILD'S CLASSES OR LESSONS?  

The school requires a 30-day written notice for students that want to withdraw. No refunds are issued. A 30-day written notice is required. Termination of tuition fees will begin 30 days from receipt of written notice. No refunds will be made for any missed classes or lessons. For more information, see our Policy page.
