Must Love Music Tuition Rates

We all want value for our money.  Investing in piano lessons means you are also investing in quite a bit of behind-the-scenes work to make your, or your child’s, ideal piano lessons.  “Where Does Your Music Tuition Go?”  provides details on where your tuition goes.

Lessons options:

  • 45-minute private lessons:
    • Recommended for students that do better with individual instruction
    • Includes some one-on-one lab programming
  • Lab-time programming:
    • Recommended for families that will have 2 or more students taking lessons
    • Students must be able to work independently as lab will be done  during lesson time with some help from Ms. Rosemarie
  • 60-minute private lessons:
    • Recommended for individual students who would like full lab time programming or more advanced students

In some instances, Ms. Rosemarie will recommend 30-minute private lessons for a student.  This is based on various factors.  She will let you know after your trial lesson whether this option will be a good fit for your child & tuition pricing.

There is no reduction in tuition for online lessons.  These require more time outside of lessons to ensure each student has access to everything they need before & after their lessons.  They also require more administrative costs to provide the best experience. 

Rest assured, Ms. Rosemarie ensures each student & family has a smooth transition to online lessons.
