“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children
hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop
sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.”
Students are required to take a minimum of 12 one-hour lessons each term, generally 4 lessons/month. Except for beginners under the age of 6, I do not teach partial lessons (i.e. 30 mins).
Students may take additional lessons if desired, but those will be invoiced separately from the standard monthly fee which is paid at the beginning of each month.
*A 5% discount is offered if the full term is paid in advance.
Please download the student agreement form below for full conditions and expectations. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

*Online students who live within reasonable distance to my studio are required to have at least one lesson each month in person. There are many aspects of individual instruction which are best taught in person.
*I generally do not teach new beginners under the age of 6 online (i.e. have never had violin lessons).
For parents/students with financial need, I will send you a financial aid form to complete which I will evaluate to determine what the student qualifies for. Although I can't offer every student financial aid, please do not hesitate to discuss your financial situation with me regardless of your "income bracket."
Priority each term goes to students who show exceptional potential and/or those who have learning disabilities, are at--risk youth, or in foster care.
Once the student/parent has had a free consultation lesson and completed/signed the agreement form, you will register an account through my website with all of your contact information. Your monthly invoice will be sent to the email registered on file.
