Introductory Lesson: A single introductory 30 minute lesson is offered to each potential student, free of charge, to provide an opportunity for us to get to know each other, without the added pressure of payment.

Basic Tuition: The basic non-discounted lesson tuition rate is $25 for a single 30 minute lesson, $40 for a single 45 minute lesson, and $55 for a single 60 minute lesson, payable in full at the beginning of each lesson.

Discounted Tuition: For students willing to commit to a minimum of one month of study, a discounted tuition rate is offered. The discounted monthly tuition rate for weekly 30 minute lessons is $95 per month. Weekly 45 minute lessons are $150 per month. Weekly 60 minute lessons are $200 per month. Monthly discounted tuition payments are due in full at the beginning of the first lesson of each month.

Lessons Per Month: Most months will have 4 lessons per month (1 lesson per week). The discounted tuition rates shown above are the basic rates for months with 4 lessons. For months with fewer lessons, due to holidays or teacher absence, credit the following discounted rate for each missed lesson: $23.75 (30 minute lesson), $37.50 (45 minute lesson), $50.00 (60 minute lesson). For months with 5 lessons during the month, add the corresponding amount to the basic monthly discounted tuition rate: $23.75 (30 minute lesson), $37.50 (45 minute lesson), $50.00 (60 minute lesson).

Makeup Policy: Please note that there is no credit provided due to lessons missed due to student absence, although the teacher will do his best to provide a makeup lesson opportunity. For lessons missed due to teacher absence, full credit will always be given.

Family Discount: There is an additional 5% discount for families with more than 1 student.

Recital Fee: Typically, two recitals are scheduled during the academic term, in Winter and Spring. The fee for each recital participant is yet to be determined, although it will be based in large part upon the cost of the recital location.

Registration Fee: There is currently no registration fee for Piano Lessons.

Missed Lessons: If a student must miss a lesson due to illness, family trip, emergency, or school activity, the lesson will be rescheduled if an opening can be found that is acceptable to both teacher and student. Lessons missed without prior notification, as well as lessons missed due to insufficient practice, will not be rescheduled. There is no reduction in tuition for missed lessons, except in the event of extended illness or teacher absence.

“The piano is often referred to as the king of all instruments. And for good reason. It has a range of more than 7 octaves – 88 keys on most instruments – and is capable of expressing both the most incredible power and the most subtle nuances.

This wonderful instrument is the composer’s instrument. It is the instrument that all university trained musicians are required to learn, regardless of their particular instrumental or vocal preference. It is truly an amazing instrument! And in my opinion, everyone should learn to play it.

I have been performing and teaching the piano for over 40 years, and have never grown tired of it. I received my own training from many incredible musicians over the years, most recently from the piano studio of Dr. Evgeny Rivkin at the University of Georgia, where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music – Piano.
