We focus on fundamentals. It's extremely important that you or your child learn the right way to play from the first lesson and beyond. That way, you will be set up for success!
We offer lessons from a half an hour, 45 minutes, to a full hour lesson. We meet once a week and are very flexible. Please tell me in advance if you're going to miss a lesson. That way I can plan accordingly.
We offer 30 minute lessons at $20 per lesson, 45-minute lessons at $30 per lesson, and 60 minute lessons at $40 per lesson. You may pay for your month in advance and you will receive a receipt for every payment made.

I have used Heather for two different children now for music lessons and she is fantastic... Currently she is teaching a 5 year old how to play the guitar and is incredibly patient. My granddaughter is completely at ease with Heather and feels confident in her ability to learn because of Heather's encouragement.
