More about Scheduling of Private Lessons

Private lessons are offered both in-person and remotely.  As of Fall 2020, while COVID-19 is with us, in-person lessons are offered as circumstances and individual teacher schedules permit.

Private lessons are offered in-person at our Worcester and W. Boylston locations; or from home via our Pakachoag Connect Online Learning Program.

Students may enroll for weekly lessons of 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length as recommended by the teacher or program director, keeping in mind the student’s level and age. Most lessons are conducted during after-school and evening hours although daytime lessons are often available for adults and home-schooled children. Lesson day and time is arranged on an individual basis according to teacher/student schedules.

Remote lessons are available on an on-going basis as part of the Pakachoag Connect program.  In some circumstances, we might request that a student take in-person lessons depending on level and instrument.  Beginning students, in particular, may require some in-person lessons; and advanced students may also require some in-person instruction to address more complex, higher-level learning issues (breathing, tonal development, fine motor skills etc. etc.).

If you Are Inquiring, Here’s How it Works

If you submit the Inquiry Form above, you will receive a follow-up email or phone call from Program Director Kristjon Imperio, usually within 24 business hours.  You are also welcome to email or call the office at 508-791-8159.

Kristjon will take you through a series of questions designed to help determine the best match for the student, including schedule options. When possible, you’ll be matched with a teacher whose style complements the student’s learning style and interests. We may also recommend a visit to the School.

After identifying a potential time and teacher match, depending upon the time of year, you may be able to request a hold on a specific time slot for five days while you send in the appropriate registration form (see below) with deposit (including the non-refundable registration fee). Please note: Lesson slots are confirmed on a first-come / first-served basis based on when your deposit is received in the School office.

Once your tuition deposit has been received and your first lesson date and time is confirmed, your total tuition amount will be calculated based on the remaining number of lessons in the program year. There are multiple billing cycles in the year. Your first bill will be the amount required to bring your account in line with the Private Lesson Payment Plan Options Samples 2020-2021, and future bills will follow this schedule.  Or, you may request monthly billing with credit card.  Monthly payment vary according to length of lesson and number of weeks for which you enroll.
