Lessons: We offer 30 or 60 minute lessons and recommend one lesson per week, giving you enough time to practice and then be ready to build upon what you have been working on the prior week. We start with your goals and the music you want to learn and build around that.
Rates: $30 per half hour and $60 per hour.
Books and Materials: Your teacher will make recommendations on books, accessories (metronome, tuner, music stand, recording device) and instruments. We keep most of these materials in stock for purchase. We recommend a metronome for every instrument. We encourage you to record your lessons.
Tuition Payments: One month’s tuition is due in advance each month and is non-refundable. Please pay for the next month on last lesson of prior month. Cash or checks, made out in your teacher’s name, are accepted.
Rescheduling: Essentially, you are buying a time slot and your time is reserved for you whether you attend the lesson or not. That being said, if something comes and we have at least a 24 hour notice and your teacher has time in the schedule, you may schedule a make-up. The lesson may be added to a scheduled lesson (e.g. 60 minutes instead of 30 minutes) or at a separate time, again, depending on the teacher’s availability—we cannot guarantee a make-up lesson if you miss your slotted time. The missed lesson cannot be “credited” towards the next month.
If the instructor or studio misses a lesson, we will reschedule with your regular teacher or a substitute.
Vacation: We request a two weeks advanced notice for extended vacations or termination of lessons. If you are taking an extended vacation or a break from lessons, we cannot hold your slot unless you are continuing to pay for the slot.
Store Holidays: Thanksgiving Thursday and Friday, Christmas and New Years. We will give advanced notice for any extra holidays. We are currently closed on Sundays and Mondays (except by appointments or for special events). We are open from 11am to 7pm on Tuesday through Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdays.
Practice: The student agrees to practice daily and has access to an instrument. We recommend practicing at the same time every day. On an “off” day, try just 10 minutes or work on just one thing.
Customized group lessons, including Rock Band, can be created just for you if you have a group.
