30 Minute Online Weekly Private Lessons
One-on-one private lessons.
One -on-one private lessons are available on a case by case basis for more dedicated or advanced students who are able to meet the requirements. Generally speaking, private lesson students are expected to dedicate more time to practice between lessons and will usually have a heavier load of assignments than students in group classes. Usually, students who already have mastered the basics of their instrument and have specific goals in mind are strong candidates for private lessons. All lessons/classes and events are completely online. A high speed internet connection with an upload & download speed of at least 1.2 megabits per second (test for free at: speedtest.net or http://bit.ly/1K5iM0D) is required for quality lessons Students may communicate with the teacher during the week outside of their scheduled lesson through the practice app. Tuition is as follows: PRIVATE LESSONS: $120 per month/30 minutes Opportunities for recitals and other music events occur every year (usually there will be a Christmas recital in December, an End-of-Year recital in May, and the NFMC Gold Cup Festival in March) Final decision on the repertoire to be studied rests with the teacher. Generally, instrumental students will follow pieces in a method series so as to ensure a complete musical education is attained without gaps in learning. As students advance they may begin to move out of method books and the pieces will principally be a standard repertoire of the particular instrument. Vocal students will be focusing on either Catholic hymns and chants or folk music. As a general rule, TV, movie, & show tunes, and Disney music will not be taught for various reasons including copyright and licensing concerns, as well as the unpedagogical soundness for many students.
