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 yours, or your child’s, ideal piano lessons.  “Where Does Your Music Tuition Go?”  provides details on where your tuition goes.

Lessons options:

  • 45-minute lessons (recommended for students that do better with individual instruction)
  • Lab time programming (recommended for families that will have 2 or more students taking lessons)
  • 60-minute lessons (recommended for individual students who would like full lab time programming or more advanced students)

During Alberta’s provincial health emergency, the entire studio has moved online for the safety of students & their families. 

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 the lesson.  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.
