Tuition and Registration

Private instruction is offered over the course of a 15-week semester. There are two semesters each academic year. Guitar lessons are offered in 30 minute sessions only.

  • For fifteen 30-minute lessons, tuition is $366.00 per semester.

Financial aid is available to families with need. Strong preference will be given to those who apply for scholarships by August 10, 2019; there is no guarantee for consideration of scholarship if applying after August 10. Limited funds are available for new scholarship applicants for the Spring semester, and will be considered on a rolling basis.

Private lesson dates and times are arranged between family and teacher.

Please note: The deadline for registering for lessons in fall semester 2020-21 is Friday, August 14, 2020. Registration after this date will result in a late fee. Most private lessons and group classes also begin the week of January 6, 2020.
