As an experienced piano instructor, I recognize that not all students are alike and that every student requires a unique approach. That is why I have based my tuition structure on a range guided by many factors.


Young, beginner students with no prior history of study, are usually placed in weekly 30 or 45-minute weekly lessons, while students who are in more advanced levels, may take an hour or more, two or more times a week. The type and complexity of the music, the levels and approaches to theory, the professional goals of the advanced pupil, and the lesson planning involved for a more advanced student require a different approach. Additionally, some students may also face particular difficulties or need specialized techniques.

Because there is no single approach to teaching that will satisfy every student’s needs, and each student will require a different amount of the instructor’s time, skills, and experience, there can be no one price for lessons.

Free Evaluation

And because I believe that you need to study music with a teacher and student who meet each other’s needs and personality, the initial evaluation is always free. If you study with me at KeyNotes and find that we are not a good fit, I encourage you to find another instructor. Your relationship with your music instructor must be a positive one. You should look forward to seeing me each week.

Tuition: A Range

Lessons at KeyNotes start at $135 a month. KeyNotes does not charge by the lesson, but by the month. This means that a month with five lesson days in it will be the same price as one with four. But $135 is just a part of a range. For some students, the cost of lessons is higher according to their level and needs.

Tuition covers more than just weekly lessons. It includes access to masterclasses, monthly group lessons, competitions, recitals in professional venues, bi-yearly evaluations, and all other KeyNotes activities and services throughout the year, as well as all of the teacher planning that stems from those events.

Tuition is competitive with other area studios and extra-curricular activities, and students in need of financial help have the option of applying for scholarships.

It is my policy not to charge any registration fees.

Forms of Payment Accepted

I accept multiple forms of payment for tuition, including cash, checks, Venmo, Zelle, and credit cards. Discounts are available to students paying for an entire semester or year.

Beyond Numbers

My students are not merely numbers on a page. They are not the tuition they pay. Each student is a unique individual with specific needs, desires, and goals. 

Please feel free to reach out to discuss tuition if you have questions. I will be more than happy to help in any way I can. Your music education is my primary goal.
