This is a special rate only for current and recent graduates of university music programs pursuing a music career. The rate is good for up to one year after graduation. I require proof of graduation date.

 

Lesson Packages

  • 20 lessons / 15% discount

These rates are for "bulk purchases" of lessons. Lesson packages must be paid in advance.

 

Travel Surcharge

  • $20 surcharge / lesson

I can travel to you for lessons, but you must secure a space and keyboard. The space must be accessible by public transportation within Chicago. This $20 surcharge is in addition to the standard studio rates.

 

Payment

  • You may pay for lessons individually or in bulk. 
  • Pay at the start of the lesson. 
  • Cash, check, and Chase QuickPay are all acceptable.
 

Late or need to cancel?

Sometimes life happens. I get it. Here's what I think is fair.

When you have to cancel a lesson - I won't charge if you give me 24-hour notice, but with less than that, it's at my discretion as to whether you are charged in full, in part, or not at all.

When you don't show for a lesson - unless it's a medical or family emergency, you forfeit that lesson and you still pay.

When you're late to a lesson - we'll start the lesson when you arrive and finish up at the scheduled time. I expect the full lesson fee. If I'm free after our scheduled time we can keep working and get in your full time.

When I have to cancel a lesson - you won't be charged. If I give less than 24-hour notice, you'll receive your next lesson at 50% off.

When I'm late to a lesson - you'll receive $1 off for every minute I'm late.
