Private lessons

Our teachers reserve time on their schedules, plan for your lessons and invest in the long-term development of each student. To provide regular, quality lessons, the following policies need to be observed.


  • Trial Lessons are restricted to one lesson per student, per teacher (i.e you can try more than one teacher, but not have several Trial Lessons with the same teacher).

  • Trial lessons are available for more than one instrument/teacher and are available for a $35 fee.


Why have a Trial Lesson?

Prior to enrolling in our Membership Program for weekly lessons, you may sign up for a Trial Lesson, meet the teacher and experience a complete lesson. It is a great way to test drive a lesson without the concerns of a long term commitment, and make sure there is a perfect fit between the student and the teacher.
