  1. In-Person, Remote, & Hybrid Options

    Private lessons are offered both in-person and remotely, or in combination, as individual teacher schedules permit.  In-person lessons take place at our Worcester home and West Boylston satellite location.

    Remote lessons continue to be available as part of our Pakachoag Connect program.  In some circumstances, teachers will request that a student take lessons in-person.  Beginning students benefit most from initial face-to-face guidance.  This may also be necessary for advanced students to address complexities and intricacies such as breathing, tonal development, and fine motor skills.


  2. Lesson Frequency & Length

    Students progress best when learning is consistent.  Weekly lesson attendance is expected during our school year running September through May/early-June.

    Weekly lessons of 30, 45 or 60 minutes are available.  Recommended length is determined by the teacher or program director, keeping in mind the student’s age and level.

    Special note for adults and home-schooled children: while lessons are typically held during after-school and evening hours, daytime slots are available.  Scheduling is arranged on an individual basis according to teacher/student availability.

  3. Determining an Instrument & Teacher

    The program director will determine, through conversation, the best instrument and teacher match for new students.  A visit to the School may be recommended.

    After identifying a time and teacher match, the office may be able to hold a specific lesson time slot for up to five days until registration form and deposit are submitted.  Registrations are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis based.

    Once the tuition deposit has been received and the first lesson date/time confirmed, the total tuition remaining and payment plan amounts are determined by lesson length cost and the number of lessons remaining in the school year.  There are 7 billing cycles, running October 1st through April 1st.  Monthly billing is taken by credit card.

Private Lessons Registration

Pre-registration for current students opens in late-May each year.  Students who pre-register are guaranteed a space with their teacher’s studio and receive scheduling priority for the fall.

Open registration begins the first day of the summer session (late-June).  Lesson slots are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis.
