Rates – Our lessons are offered weekly in half hour, 45 minute, or full hour sessions. Our prices are as follows:
$25 – per half hour lesson, or $80 for four weeks of half hour lessons
$35 – per 45 minute lesson, or $120 for four weeks of 45 minute lessons
$45 – per hour lesson, or $140 for four weeks of hour long lessons
**Special $10 rate for group/class instruction
Further discounts apply to households with more than one student. Please inquire through email or telephone as to how these rates work.
Every student has their own four week session. This avoids complications with months with five weeks, and allows students to start or end at any point rather than waiting for a month to begin or end.
We also offer one free trial lessons to any new student. These are usually offered on Saturdays as not to interfere with our teacher’s weekly schedule. Please contact us through email or telephone to set up a trial lesson.
Coupons are offered in local newspapers and to students at school. These coupons are always for one free lesson and are only accepted once per three month period by any current student. Also, one free lesson credit is given to any student who has perfect attendance over a twelve week period.
Prices are subject to change.
Student Responsibilities –
• Materials - Students are responsible for the purchase of their own books, instruments, and other materials needed for the lessons they are receiving. Our teachers will assist in referring our students to where they can obtain these items, however they are not responsible for providing them personally.
• Practicing - Each teacher instructs how much practice is ideal for each student and will encourage students in their practicing. Nevertheless, once the instructor is gone it is up the student to do their own practicing. Progress will be made most quickly by those students who maintain the recommended practicing time. Parents are also encouraged to be involved in their students practice. Taking the time to listen to your child play their weekly songs, or creating a set time for practicing in the students daily routine are good ways to become involved.
• Attendance – Students are responsible for their time slot with CSAM Music Lessons. If a student is not available for their weekly lesson for any reason it is not the responsibility of the teacher to make up the missed lesson, or the responsibility of Clear Springs Music Academy (CSAM) to reimburse the student for the missed lesson. In addition to this, students are asked to contact their teacher 24 hours in advance if a student will be unavailable for their lesson. It is a courtesy to the teachers to not have to drive to a lesson that will not be taking place.
