Our piano program for school age students consists of a weekly private lesson and a 45-minute group class.
The multiple tuition figures listed below reflect the experience, education, and certification level of the private piano teacher.
Prior to beginning piano lessons, we require a placement interview for all incoming school-aged students. This interview is intended to give us an opportunity to meet the child, assess what level they are on, and get a feel for their personality in hopes of placing them with a teacher who will be a good fit. Length of the lesson and teacher placement will be determined by the director.
*If at the time of the interview, it is determined that there is not an appropriate group class for the student, a recommendation will be made that the student study privately only. The student will then be billed at the without-group rate until they are ready to enroll in a group class.
