From Our Website

This fall we are offering both online and in-person lessons and classes so teachers and families can choose what is right for them. For in-person instruction we have numerous safety protocols in place. Music instruction is more important than ever now. It offers students regular interaction with a teacher who is focused only on them, provides an individualized course of study, and gives students a pleasant and engaging activity they can do independently at home.

In consideration of the need young children have for live interaction, we've decided to bring back in-person music classes for ages 0-7, outside and with every safety measure we can think of in place. There are online music classes too so you can choose the format with which you're most comfortable. Online music classes are held via Zoom in the comfort of your own home, using kitchen instruments easily found around the house. Instruments disinfected after each class and/or not used again for several days (in the case of paper or cloth).

Musical Beginnings offers several performance opportunities throughout the year for our students enrolled in private instrumental or vocal instruction. Our recitals are now online and we've added virtual recording sessions to our offerings, so our students are keeping their performance skills sharp! Mixed Recitals bring together students of different instruments and teachers to perform for each other, family and friends. Our Holiday concert in December is a traditional Musical Beginnings way to bring in the season.

Tuition for private lessons currently ranges from $136-$160/month for a weekly 30-minute lesson. Your exact rate will depend upon your teacher and instrument. There is a $35 registration fee for new families or those returning after an absence. Tuition is due on the first lesson of the month, in advance for the month, paid directly to your teacher. They will provide their payment options (Venmo, Paypal, etc.) upon registration. Tuition covers four lessons a month. When a month has five lesson days in it, the fifth is used to balance out a month that has only had three lessons in it due to a holiday or scheduled teacher absence.
