Harp & Piano Lessons

Location

Lessons take place at my home in Killeen.

Rates

If you are not sure about committing to lessons, try a 30-minute trial lesson for $15.

Lessons are split into two parts:

  1. Instrument time, focusing on technique and musicality
  2. Music Mind Games time, focusing on music-reading and theory skills

Children seven years and older

            60-minute lesson

            $120/month ($30/lesson)

Children six years and under

            45-minute lesson

            $100/month ($25/lesson)

Siblings

If siblings are at a similar level, the Music Mind Games time can be combined.

            90-minutes for two children (30 minutes each on instrument, 30 minutes combined on

                        Music Mind Games)

            $180/month ($45/two lessons)

Payment

Payment for the entire month is due by the first lesson of the month. I prefer electronic payments. You can choose one of the following options:

Venmo: @Brittany-Burns-35

Paypal (friends and family option): brittanyhburns@gmail.com

Zelle: (801)859-3862

Attendance

If you know you have to miss a week at the beginning of the month, you will not be charged. If you do need to cancel a lesson after payment has already been made, I will do my best to schedule a makeup lesson. However, if we are not able to find a time for a makeup lesson, you will not be refunded for the missed lesson.

If I need to cancel a lesson, I will either schedule a makeup lesson or give you a credit towards the next month’s balance.
