Assignment for private instruction depends on student and instructor availability and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Private instruction enrollment is for the entire academic year (four 9-week quarters), however registration is ongoing throughout the academic year and tuition will be prorated as applicable. Tuition rates depend upon lesson length (30, 45 or 60 min) and the choice of instructor. In order to ensure that the instructional experience is productive and meaningful, regular attendance is expected. Piano students should review the Piano/Keyboard Instrument Requirements.
