Q. How Do I Sign Up For Lessons?
You can sign up anytime. Click the Get Started button in the menu above and introduce yourself. We’ll match you with a teacher and find a time that works for ongoing lessons. The first lesson is called an assessment lesson.
Q. What’s an Assessment Lesson?
Don’t worry, it’s not a test! It’s just what we call your first lesson. You’ll come in, meet your teacher, talk about your goals, go through our policies and develop an individual curriculum. Every student does it regardless of age or ability. For young students, an assessment is also a chance to see if they’re ready for private lessons.
Q. How Much are Lessons?
We have a number of pricing options, including our Lessons Membership, Lesson Packs and even Senior Teacher rates. Get started here to let us know about you and what you’re looking for and we’ll find a plan that works for you.

Yes, here’s how it works:
