Fees (2018-19)

FEES

Participating in my private studio includes weekly private lessons, monthly Saturday workshops, numerous performance opportunities and preparation for the ASTACAP exams in the spring. Private lessons take place on weekday afternoons either at my home in Berkeley, California or at the Berkeley Rose Waldorf School Hillegass campus. Students will receive 32 private lessons from September 10, 2018 through June 7, 2019 at an hourly rate of $84.

30-minute lesson: $42
45-minute lesson: $63
60-minute lesson: $84

Workshops: $22 each
Recital Prep Rehearsal without accompanist: $22
Recital Prep Rehearsals with accompanist: $45

Recitals: $45 each
Chamber Ensemble Coaching: $120/hour per group
ASTACAP: $45-$65 depending on level

Please note: If your student needs additional time with the accompanist to rehearse for our Feb. 2, 2019 recital (generally recommended for students working at ASTACAP levels 4-10), you will need to schedule these rehearsals and negotiate the payments directly with the accompanist.

DISCOUNTS
A 10% discount is given for paying in advance for 16 lessons. A flat fee for all workshops, parties, recitals and rehearsals is $400 for the 2018-19 academic year due in two installments: $200 by September 15, 2018 and $200 by January 25, 2019.  Please note that while the $400 Activity Fee DOES include the accompanist fee for the rehearsal on January 26, 2019 and the recital on February 2, 2019, it DOES NOT include the application or accompanist fees for the ASTACAP exams.  Siblings qualify for an additional 5% discount on private lessons.

PAYMENTS
Private lesson and Activity fees can be paid for individually or in 2 16-week installments due on September 15, 2018 and January 26, 2019. Please note that while the $400 Activity Fee DOES include the accompanist fee for the rehearsal on January 26, 2019 and the recital on February 2, 2019, it DOES NOT include the application or accompanist fees for the ASTACAP exams.  The individual charges for the activities are: $22 for Workshops (including the Costume Party) and rehearsals without accompanist; and $45 for all recitals and rehearsals with accompanist. These payments are due on the day of the activity. I will make every effort to honor these rates, but I do reserve the right to make changes if unforseen events occur like needing to change the recital venue or hire another accompanist.

Students are responsible for purchasing their own music, acquiring their own instrument and keeping it maintained. 

CANCELLATION POLICY
If you need to miss or reschedule a lesson, please let me know as soon as possible. No shows or those giving less than a day's notice will be charged the entire lesson fee. No exceptions please.
