RATES - HOW MUCH DO LESSONS COST?
Our piano and voice lessons are competitively priced with other teachers in the Holly Springs and surrounding Triangle area.
Tuition covers the expense of many benefits to the student, including...
TIME SPENT WITH THE STUDENT
Lessons, group classes, adjudication extra rehearsals and events, recitals.
TIME SPENT IN PREPARATION FOR THE STUDENT
Lesson planning, bookkeeping, development of curriculum, etc. It has been cited by professional music journals that for every hour enrolled in music lessons, you are investing in at least 2 hours of the teachers time!
STUDIO EXPENSES, MUSIC BOOKS AND DIGITAL DOWNLOADS
Copying, computer software, incentive programs, instruments, tunings, repairs and studio copies of materials purchased by the teacher to keep costs low for students.
RECITAL COSTS AND PREPARATIONS

YOUR TEACHER’S TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE

Lessons and classes that keep the teacher current on methods and techniques
PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION MEMBERSHIPS
Memberships are maintained by the teacher to enhance their teaching skills and provide the student with opportunities for festivals, competitions, and performance events.
BOOK AND MUSIC CLUB MEMBERSHIPS
This enables many discounts to be passed to students
Publications to assist the teacher in keeping current on new teaching materials and trends.
PROPERTY TAXES, SELF-EMPLOYMENT TAXES, INSURANCE, RETIREMENT
The independent music teacher has no corporation to assist in providing health and life insurance by matching funds. Tuition helps cover the increased living costs of your self-employed teacher.
No price can be put on such an amazing art as music,
but by investing in music lessons, you are investing in a skill that can be enjoyed for a lifetime!
