Private Lesson Packages and Pricing

Students can take up to 2 weeks of private lesson to make sure they like the topic. After 2 weeks, choose a 6 week or 10 week block of lessons. The 2 original lessons will be applied to the block – so for example if you decide you want a 10 week lesson after the 2 trial lessons, you’ll have 8 lessons left in your block and the cost of the 2 trial lessons are applied to the total balance.

Want your kids to take lessons together? We do offer group lessons.
