HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHICH INSTRUCTOR IS RIGHT FOR ME?
We’ll ask you about your experience, schedule needs, personal goals and interests and then suggest one of our expert teachers who we feel will be a great match for you! We will then ask the instructor to contact you to discuss any details that you’ll need before your first lesson.
WHAT IF I’M NOT SURE THE TEACHER IS RIGHT FOR ME?
We realize that many factors are involved in reaching that perfect student / teacher relationship. While we feel that our talented office staff is extremely successful in this matching task, if you are not 100% comfortable with an instructor at any point in your learning journey – let us know! We’ll remedy the situation as best possible for all involved.
HOW OFTEN DO I TAKE A PRIVATE LESSON?
Most students take one half hour private lesson per week. However, some students may discuss their own personal skill level and goals with their instructor and choose to take either one forty-five minute lesson or one hour lesson per week.
HOW MUCH ARE PRIVATE LESSONS?
Lessons are paid on the first lesson of each month, for that month in advance.
Most instrument private lessons are $107.00 per month (Four half hour lessons).
Most Vocal private lessons are $127.00 per month (Four half hour lessons).
WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT MONTHLY PRIVATE LESSON RATES?
Austin School of Music instructors are working as Independent Contractors and are able to choose their own personal monthly private lesson rate. To find out what a specific instructor charges per month, please visit their personal homepage on this website. Click HERE to go to our Instructor homepages.
WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
The Austin School of Music accepts Cash, Check (Made out to: Austin School of Music), Money Order, and all major Credit Cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover). We also accept payments via PayPal. Click HERE to make a payment via PayPal.
The Austin School of Music also offers an Easy Pay payment option.
With Easy Pay, your credit card information is kept securely on file with our bookkeeper so that your lesson payment will be charged automatically, without you having to deal with it at all! Your instructor will indicate exactly how many lessons are to be charged each month.
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?
Yes! Many students take advantage of our discounted three month blocks of lessons. With our Three Month Discount, anyone paying for three full months (thirteen private lessons) at one time will only be charged for twelve private lessons and will pay only one $7.00 Office Fee (as opposed to paying a $7.00 Office Fee for each of those three months).
Note: This discount applies only to complete months, so holiday / vacation months are not eligible.
CAN AN INSTRUCTOR TEACH MORE THAN ONE STUDENT AT A TIME?
Yes! If more than one student would like to take lessons together, the additional student(s) will be charged only 50% more each to participate.
However, please note that students learn at different paces and have different learning styles. What that means is that a one-on-one lesson may be more beneficial to each student than learning together.
DO YOU HAVE SPANISH SPEAKING INSTRUCTORS?
Yes! You can request a Spanish speaking instructor when you set up your lessons or you can look at our individual teacher homepages on this website for Spanish speaking teacher listings.
WHAT DO I DO IF I DECIDE TO TAKE A BREAK OR STOP MY LESSONS ALTOGETHER?
If you choose to discontinue taking lessons, we respectfully request that you give your instructor two weeks notice.
