Violin Lessons for Ages 3-4
Studio lessons are the traditional way to learn to play an instrument. The student visits the studio ideally once a week and practices daily between lessons. Some students request two or three lessons a week. We recommend beginners start with no more or less than one half-hour lesson per week except in special circumstances. Our studio is located at 203 W Main St in Smithville, MO. For the protection of both our students and our instructors, we do not allow children under the age of 14 to be in the studio without a parent or another responsible adult present. However, if your child is 10 or older, you may sit in our waiting room or wait in the car.
Tuition is calculated based on how often you schedule lessons. It is not an hourly rate. Rather, it is based on a monthly average of the amount of time an instructor spends providing lessons. Tuition must be paid monthly, and rates and options are fixed. We are unable to collect tuition weekly or biweekly, and we are also unable to to accept payment in advance for multiple months. We cannot offer lessons more or less frequently than the options currently available or divide time and tuition intended for one student among multiple students. We do not offer class-based discounts.
If you have not done so yet, please schedule an orientation in our studio. Then, complete the form below if you would like someone to contact you about registering your child for cello lessons in our studio.
Violin students under the age of five are required to have a practice partner and one fifteen-minute lesson per week (excluding holidays, illness, and emergencies), which will cost $45/month in the studio. Thirty-minute weekly lessons are recommended beginning at age five. A practice partner is usually mom or dad but could be a grandparent, an older sibling, a nanny, or any responsible person who is available to attend lessons with the child and practice daily at home. The practice partner is also required to take violin lessons separate from the child's violin lessons for at least one year or until the child's fifth birthday if they do not already play the violin. The cost of the practice partner's lessons are not included in the child's tuition.
