The studio is not currently taking new students. If you would like to join the waitlist, use the "Pay for Lessons/Request Appointment" button below. 

Instruction and coaching are available for the following subjects:

Lessons are available by appointment only. Please contact me for more information.


What is the cost of lessons and how long/how often are they?

Lessons are typically 30 minutes once a week. The tuition rate for one 30-minute lesson is $35; hour-long lessons are available to students aged 13 years and older for $70. 

Is the lesson price negotiable? What if I want a 45-minute lesson?

No. Lessons are scheduled in 30-minute blocks (see above).

Can my children share a lesson time for $35?

No, each student should have their own 30-minute lesson time to get the adequate guidance and individual attention they deserve while learning.

Can I register my 5-year-old for lessons?

I take students no younger than 8 years for piano or piano/voice combination only; students younger than age 10 may be evaluated for voice or other instrumental lessons.  Evaluations are charged $35, the same as a 30-minute lesson.

Will you come to my house to teach?

No; however, lessons can be conducted online (see below).

Can you call me every week to remind me that I have a lesson?

No; if you miss your scheduled lesson  twice in a row without notice, you will lose your spot on the roster, so please be sure to set up a reminder in your calendar and let me know ahead of time if you cannot make it to your lesson.

I have an idea/lyrics for a song, can you write it for me?

No, but I can teach you how to write it on your own through composition and musicianship lessons.

Do you offer online lessons?

Generally yes, with a few exceptions. Students who are brand-new to their instrument are encouraged to take a few in-person lessons to learn to assemble and care for their instrument, proper playing posture, and how to produce a good sound, before switching to all-online.  Voice students are encouraged to do primarily in-person lessons since much of the repertoire requires an accompanist. 

If you have other questions, please contact me for more information.
