Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! Several of our teachers have degrees in pedagogy and have specifically trained in teaching children. We accept students age 5 and up, although students under 13 should have a parent in the room with them for lessons. For children who are too young to read music right away, our teachers will do rhythm games, ear training, and even improvisation in order to develop your child’s musical abilities.

Of course! We have many teachers who are great with adult students, and the scheduling flexibility that we offer is particularly helpful for many adults. In most cases, instead of using a pre-planned method book, your teacher will simply ask about your musical interests and then create a personalized plan to help you reach your goals.

They are very similar to in-person lessons, except more affordable and more convenient. You will still meet with the same teacher each lesson and interact with them in real time. You will learn technique, music theory, how to read music, and all your favorite pieces.

In order to take advantage of our 10% discount, you will want to sign up for 8 once-a-week lessons. After you have completed those lessons, you are welcome to choose any of our packages or flexible scheduling options. With these options, you can take lessons once or twice a week, or we can do custom subscriptions if you would prefer to take lessons more or less often.

Lessons are typically $30 per half hour, $42 for 45 minutes, and $55 per hour.  

Yes, as long as the lessons are with the same teacher, for students in the same family, each full price lesson allows for a second lesson in the same week but discounted by $5. So if you’re taking half hour lessons twice a week or have two children taking half hour lessons, one lesson will be $30 (our usual rate), and another is $20, for a total of $55. 

In that case, we will pair your child with one of our teachers who has experience with working with children with learning disabilities. Even if your child has difficulties, for example, with staying focused or learning to read music, there is still much to be gained from music lessons. The teacher will easily adapt and include rhythm games, improvisation, ear training, and other musical exercises that suit the level and capabilities of the student.

Yes. We’ll do our best to match you with the teacher who best suits your skill level and interests, and as long as you keep wanting to take lessons from that teacher, you can keep taking from that teacher. If you want to try lessons with a different teacher, just let us know, and we will pick a new teacher for you.
