A la carte lessons with Jeannie or Brian are calculated monthly @ $50 per 30 minute lesson, $65 per 45 minute lesson, and $80 per one hour lesson scheduled. All summer piano lessons are scheduled and billed as a la carte classes. Payment for a la carte lessons is due at the first lesson of each month.
Discounted A la carte lessons with an Apprentice Student Teacher are calculated monthly @ $25 per 30 minute lesson, $32.50 per 45 minute lesson, and $40 per one hour lesson scheduled.
Split lessons: Lessons may not be split between siblings (i.e. a single one-hour lesson into two 30 minute lessons). However, siblings may alternate lessons weekly. Alternating lessons will be calculated monthly and billed as a la carte lessons. A la carte students are eligible to participate in internal events only (lessons, recitals, and theory classes). Participation in outside events (i.e. festivals and competitions) require formal enrollment in piano lessons.
