Contact us today with questions or to inquire about open lesson times and upcoming classes! Some of our online courses or self-paced while others start and end at specific times.
DO I NEED ANY PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE?
Not at all! We have options available for students at every level and any age. We recommend that students to do start private lessons until age 6.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO LEARN?
Hopefully forever! We encourage the pursuit of music as a lifelong learning process. That said, students should notice continual positive change in their skill level and comprehension while they are taking lessons or courses. Progress will also depend greatly on the amount of time a student dedicates to home study. Finally, we do encourage and facilitate specific goal setting for students, whether that be the ability to comfortably play in a particular style or aspiring to learn a specific piece of music.
WHERE IS THE STUDIO LOCATED?
Private lessons are available in person in Montpelier, VT. Students can study virtually from anywhere in the world. Classes, courses, and workshops are available throughout Vermont. Online music composition courses can also be accessed from anywhere.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTICE?
Suggested practice times depend on your level, goals, and course of study. Most Foundations students should dedicate 15-30 minutes of practice per day. Intermediate students should plan for 20-45 minutes per day while Early Advanced and Advanced students should practice 40-60 minutes per day. This are very general guidelines. Each student is unique and should speak with their instructor, mentor, or teacher to develop the best practice strategies. We recommend that students practice 5 days per week with one day for their class or lesson and one day for rest.
HOW MUCH DO LESSONS COST?
Private lessons are $80/hr (or $60 for a 45-minute lesson). Students who take lessons regularly are encouraged to sign up to our Year of Music Making program which includes 3 lessons per month on a semester schedule at a substantial discount. We do not recommend 30 minute lessons for students at any age or level.
DO I NEED A PIANO OR KEYBOARD BEFORE I START LESSONS?
Yes! Lessons and classes can be quite frustrating if students do not have access to a functioning and in-tune instrument.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?
We currently offer one private lesson slot during each weekday and 3 slots on Saturday.
