Basic Costs for Lessons
Students receive 36 lessons per year from the month in which they start their lessons. Lessons continue on a year round schedule, but holidays, vacation times, and studio breaks are given.
Students receive 15 minutes of theory instruction at each lesson in addition to the lesson itself. During the 15 minutes of theory time students work from various theory workbooks and drills, and listen to ear training materials. Students review and work on the Virginia State Theory Exams, and take a yearly state theory exam in February.
During the year group performance classes are held at the studio. Students who are assigned to work on duets, concertos, or other ensemble work meet during the month for extra rehearsals.
