- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Registration Fee – For NEW students a $20 non-refundable registration fee applies to the first invoice. For returning students who have not had a lesson in the last 30 days the registration fee applies again. The registration fee is applied in addition to the first month of lessons. *MONTHLY RATE PLANS* Lessons are billed monthly and available in the following packages with recurring private lessons being held weekly in accordance with the studio calendar. 44 live lessons are held per year along with 11 group workshops and recitals. In addition, assessments are made in between the live lessons to ensure a thorough learning experience. A) Private Lessons Packages B) Group Lessons Packages C) Ongoing Support Packages A) Private Lessons Packages: • Include private LIVE* private Zoom video conference lessons each month. • Access to a group class in certain months. • Include evaluations of practice, progress, and assignments in between each live lesson. • Access to apps and books that are needed as part of the curriculum. B) Group Lessons Packages • Includes LIVE* group lessons each month. • Includes evaluations of practice, progress, and assignments in between each live lesson. • Access to apps and books that are needed as part of the curriculum. C) Ongoing Support Packages The Ongoing Support package allows the student to study asynchronously with a private teacher. This allows efficient use of both parties’ time. Videos are exchanged in MUCH higher quality than during a live stream or videoconferencing session. Longer duration packages are typically used for intermediate/advanced students and students that are studying more than one instrument. A 15-minute consultation is available if you have questions or if you need device setup for online lessons (live through Zoom video conferencing software). GROUP lessons and ONLINE TEACHER TRAINING are available; please inquire about pricing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to talk to families and students before starting the lessons. I may ask questions such as if the student has taken lessons before, how much experience on the instrument he/she has, and what his/her goals are with lessons and musical growth. It is important for me to make sure that the lessons are a good fit for everyone–communication and rapport are both key!
