The program is designed to make student placement more efficient, and to ensure each individual class is comprised of like-skilled participants. Parents will enroll their children in one of two groups: ages five to eight and eight to 13. On the first day of lessons, the instructors will divide the entire class into individual groups. The youngest, beginner group will have a ratio of 1:3 (instructor to participants). More advanced groups will be 1:4 or 1:5. These individual groups will be divided based on skill, not age, so it is unlikely siblings will end up with the same instructor, although it is possible.
Private Lessons: A private lesson is typically one-on-one instruction that is scheduled according to your availability and the instructor’s. Semi-private lessons, which are two students to one instructor, are also available. Three 30-minute lessons cost $105.00 and six 30-minutes lessons are $210.00. Three semi-private lessons are $150.00 and six semi-private lessons cost $255.00.
