Frequently Asked Questions
How much do lessons cost?
Private one on one lessons start at $36.
How long of a lesson should I take?
For kids 5 to 9 years old, a 30 minute lesson is a good duration for the lesson. For 9 and up and students who have specific music goals such as playing in orchestra at
school, a 45 minute lesson is a much better investment. For advanced players an hour lesson is recommended.
What happens if I ( my child ) gets sick and can’t make a lesson one day?
With advance notice of 24 hours. We can reschedule your lesson as long as the teachers schedule permits. You can also do an online lesson if you can’t make it into the studio because of a timing issue or illness.
What happens if I leave for 2 months and come back?
If you are leaving for 30 days or longer, you have the option of holding your time and teacher for when you return by paying your normal monthly tuition.You may also withdraw completely and re- register when you return, however your time and teacher may not be available.
What if I want to quit, or I, my child is not completely thrilled with my teacher?
We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee and only have a month by month agreement, so you can discontinue any time you want by notifying us in writing (with our online cancellation form) by the 25th of the month prior to the month you wish to discontinue lesson. In the event that you teacher is not a great match, we will find you a new one right away!
How long does it take to learn an instrument?
Most students are able to learn to play a simple song within the first 30 days, even if you’ve never picked up an instrument before. Our teachers will focus on helping you get that first big win fast!
Should I buy the instrument before starting lessons?
You will definitely want to purchase or rent an instrument for your child to have at home. WE rent 3/4/scale guitars and violins for $20 per month. For piano and drum sets, we can help you with the right decision for a good home instrument within your budget. You don’t necessarily need to spend a lot on an acoustic piano to get started. You can purchase a decent electronic keyboard that work fine for your child’s first year. For drums , electronic sets are great as they allow the student to practice at home without shaking the house down! With both keyboards and drums, headphones can be used by the student at home.
How do I know my child is progressing ?
To keep our students learning and progressing, we use our own patented Musical Milestones system. Every 6 months our students take a test with their teacher to make sure they are absorbing the material in the lessons and making progress. Our students love this system as they get to earn cool colorful medals-and certificates as well as trophies for their achievements! Our teachers also will take the time to conference with you at the beginning or end of the lesson to keep you updated on their progress.
