Is there any flexibility in lesson prices?
Occasionally, if there is real financial hardship. Lessons are discounted if paid in advance as a set of four lessons. (see pricing)
What do I need to bring to lessons? Please bring a composition book for assignments and a three-ring binder for your music, as well as any music books which you are working from. Please bring a pencil, as well.
Do I need to buy music?
Voice students will be given copies of vocal exercises and some songs to work on, but will occasionally be asked to purchase vocal books. Piano students will be given theory sheets to study, but will need to purchase piano method books. You are free to purchase them on your own through local stores or on the internet. If you like, Karen can purchase the books for you for a nominal fee.
