How Do Private Lessons Work?
Class size: One teacher and one student.
Online Support: At this time, if you request the password to the Violin Class Resources Page, you may have it for free. There you will find sheet music, videos and MP3 files to help you learn as fast as possible.
Difficulty Level: Catered to each individual, starting from someone who has never touched an instrument before, to advanced violin and cello students. Classes are designed to not be too difficult, but to push you along.
Schedule: Private lessons typically occur once per week. You will choose your own schedule based on the availability of the teacher. You will see the teacher’s real-time availability on the calendar you will schedule on.
Expiration and Cancellation: In a private lesson, the teacher is blocking off a time slot in their calendar for you, preventing other students from signing up for a lesson at that time. Therefore in private lessons, a 24 cancellation policy exists. You must cancel your lessons more than 24 hours in advance or you may be charged the full fee of the lesson.
Comparisons: Having trouble deciding between group classes or private lessons? Many students take both simultaneously. Private lessons help you excel technically and hastens learning time. If you have no musical background, or would like to speed progress, consider doing both. If you are on a limited budget or schedule, you might have to choose one or the other during active semester times. See the comparison chart.
