I hold 3 sessions per school year, adjusted to fit as many local school districts as possible. When you or your child sign up for lessons, I assume that we will enjoy a long-term musical relationship and their time is scheduled for the entire school year. However, each session (usually 9-13 weeks) begins a new billing period. Payment for all lessons in that session are expected at the first lesson.
Each half-hour piano lesson is $20. Half-hour voice lessons are $25. I recommend that piano students and voice students under the age of 14 are scheduled for one half-hour session per week.
So, for example, if you are taking weekly piano lessons and there are 10 weeks in that session, the charge will be $200 for the entire session, due at the first lesson.
There is also a yearly fee to cover music purchases, copies, recital expenses, and accompanists. The fee for piano students is $15 per year. The fee for voice students is $45 per year. If your student starts later in the school year, these fees are prorated in thirds.
