Prices for lessons start at $25 for a half hour private lesson. Most lessons are generally 30 minutes long, whereas some people opt to have a 30 minute piano/keyboard lesson followed by a 30 minute Music Theory lesson for maximise their learning. For one hour lessons the price is $45.

For the first two lessons payment can be made on the day, however after these lessons, payment can be made in advance for 10 week terms, which gains you a 5% discount. Students have the choice of taking lessons once or twice a week depending on how quickly they would like to progress.
